Ingredients For Butter Pecan Iced Coffee

To make Dunkin Donuts butter pecan swirl syrup, you’ll need:

This recipe depends on using LorAnn Butter Pecan Flavor Fountain syrup. It has a higher concentration of flavor than other butter pecan syrups meant for flavoring coffee drinks. Please use the recommended syrup to avoid being disappointed.

To prepare the drink, you will also need:

  • Extra strong coffee
  • Ice
  • Half-and-half or heavy cream

You can brew extra strong coffee using your usual brewing method by increasing the amount of coffee by half to compensate for diluting the coffee when you pour it over ice. You don’t have to worry about increasing the coffee-to-water ratio if you use the cold brewing method or cold coffee.

What Can You Serve With Butter Pecan Iced Coffee

Serve the Butter Pecan Iced Coffee in a glass with plenty of ice. There is no need for any garnishes. But if you want to be decadent, top it with whipped cream and a caramel drizzle.

Since this intensely flavored drink, it can easily overpower anything served with it. Therefore, if you insist on snacking while drinking, try something pecan-flavored like Pecan Pie Brownies or these gorgeous Spiced Pecans.

How To Store the Syrup

Condensed milk is long-lasting and shelf-stable, but the timer is ticking as soon as you open the can. While condensed milk will last a good amount of time in the fridge, it will eventually go bad.

Adding flavoring to the condensed milk further reduces the time you can keep it around. To ensure your butter pecan syrup stays fresh for as long as possible, keep it in a sealed container in the fridge. 

Although the syrup won’t freeze solid because of its high sugar level, you can freeze it. Many people like to portion the butter pecan syrup into an ice cube tray, put the tray in a freezer bag, and freeze it that way. 

How Long Will the Butter Pecan Syrup Last? 

The butter pecan syrup should stay fresh in the fridge for a long time when stored properly. For safety, it is best to finish any extra butter pecan syrup within two weeks. 

The frozen syrup should be okay for up to three months. Thaw the butter pecan syrup in the fridge before using it in a drink.
