The Stuff That Keeps You Up at Night


You'll have to forgive the not-full cup :) By the time I thought to take a picture of our coffee drink this was all that was left. It was that good folks!

This is a delicious, easy, non-blended ice coffee drink. I think it would be easy to make it into a blended coffee drink if your a fan of iced coffee - which I so am. I just haven't gotten around to trying it blended. My thoughts for making it blended would be to freeze an ice cube tray with some left over coffee sometime. Then when you go to make this drink pour it and some of the coffee ice cubes in the blender and *voila*! An un-diluted yummy, iced coffee :)

Ok, so here is the latest coffee recipe I tried - actually it's the only recipe we've ever tried :) Paul makes amazing coffee drinks, but it's all up in his head. He takes after my mother too ;)

Iced Cafe Mocha
Combine 1/2 cup ground coffee with 2 Tablespoons cocoa powder. (I used the Special Dark Chocolate)
Using a coffee maker brew with 4 cups of water.
Stir in 1/4 cup* sweetened condensed milk, then refrigerate.
Serve over ice.

I read 1/2 cup the first time I made it, so made it with twice the called for amount of sweetened condensed milk. Mmmm. I'd recommend you double it too ;) But I couldn't bring myself to lie to y'all and change the recipe.
