Iced coffee is a wonderful treat in my book. We drink lots and lots of coffee around our house, but almost always hot coffee. As the temperatures warm up we drink less. I have discovered the wonderous world of iced coffee at the local General Store. I decided surely I could make something similar at home.
Sure enough it did the trick for an afternoon pick me up! It is so simple too. I added a little heavy cream but half and half or milk would work fine. Double the recipe if you have someone to share with. I made ice cubes from my morning coffee and it provided the full coffee flavor I was looking for without the watered down taste you get with regular ice cubes.
Now I have a favor to ask. Remember that Morel Mushroom & Asparagus Tart from a few days ago? Marx Foods is hosting a contest and I could sure use your vote. It just takes a second to vote! Click here to vote now. THANKS!!
Video, did I say video? Yes I did. I am not the star of the video but my prize winning Caramel Macchiato Ice Cream Pie is! Nestle Kitchens made a YouTube video featuring my pie. It kind of made my day, my week, my year! I thought you would like to watch it and see just how darn easy this pie is. Then you will know you have to make one!
- 2 cups coffee ice cubes *
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 1/4 cup Hershey’s chocolate syrup
Place all ingredients into a blender and process until ice is crushed. Pour into a tall glass and serve with a straw.
*Just pour cooled coffee into ice trays and freeze! I used what was left of the morning coffee.
