Ahh, Mondays. While we grapple with sleepiness and mentally prepare for another week, we seek out ways to wake up throughout the day. For some it's hitting 'snooze' or taking a nap, for others it's exercise and for many it's caffeine.
But getting your coffee fix doesn't have to come in the form of a latte. We're talking espresso no-bake brownies, caramel frappuccino and pumpkin spice latte waffles to make (Mon)days that much sweeter.
Here are seven seriously delicious coffee-spiked breakfast, dessert and drink recipes.

2. Mocha coconut fudge
