You should know all about my love affair with coffee by now, and if you don't, you will soon! I love coffee like I never knew I could or even would! The smell of those yummy beans brewing starts my day in delight! I drink it hot year round, 3-4 cups in the morning makes for a good day! It was only a few years ago when I discovered Mo lattes from Dairy Queen, what a treat! And now McDonald's has Fares, another wow moment and the only thing I go to McDonald's for, their coffee is excellent but who can afford those pricey iced coffee drinks? Not me, so guess what? I found a super easy recipe for us to make them right at home. Now, from the links I visited, there seems to be a science to making them, some say use double strength coffee, or cold brew? So, I played around with the best of the bunch and here is my recipe for my favorite way to drink coffee cold, in mocha form!
1 c. extra strong brewed coffee
Sugar to taste
1 c. half & half
1/4 c. chocolate syrup ( more if you like but at least 1/4 c.)
Brew coffee and add sugar while still hot to dissolve. Combine coffee, half and half, and chocolate syrup in pitcher, stir well to combine. Serve over ice and top with whip cream, which is optional. Enjoy!
Doesn't that hit the spot on a hot day while at work or play? And so much cheaper. Join me in a summer love fest with coffee, hot and cold! Now, treat yourself to something nice with the money you are saving by making this at home! Happy Tasty Tuesday!
