Mocha Freeze & a Video

by Milisa on May 2, 2012

Mocha Freeze

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!

Mocha Freeze

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups coffee ice cubes *
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup Hershey’s chocolate syrup

Directions:

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.

Enjoy!
