Tackle It Tuesday - iced coffee

I've been wanting to try this "recipe" of sorts for a few weeks now and I've finally purchased all the necessary ingredients. A friend of mine at church makes this each week for the Sunday School class she teaches (senior high students). It's the same iced coffee that you can purchase at Burger King. Mmmm, it's so good. I have never been a coffee drinker, but well, this just might get me hooked.

Here are the key ingredients: chocolate syrup, coffee, french vanilla creamer

I made a nice thick layer of chocolate syrup at the bottom of my pitcher, then added equal parts perked coffee and creamer (32 oz creamer and about 5 cups coffee. I'm not sure about this whole making coffee thing: I poured in 4 cups water/32oz, but I think it perked closer to 6 cups? Anyways, it tastes great, so feel free to experiment depending on your coffee strength desire).

Stir then serve over ice. It's that easy! Yum!

Money wise: I bought the chocolate syrup and vanilla creamer at Aldi pretty cheap and then just bought name brand coffee. Again, I'm not a normal coffee drinker, so it's up to you, but mm, mm, I'm on my second cup. Good thing I made decaf! :)

Oh, sounds good! I like making frappacino's using coffee left in the pot. A wee bit of coffee, add plenty of milk and a little sugar. Yum!

It's great trying new recipes.
