Be your own barista and you can enjoy the great flavors of your favorite coffees from popular coffeehouse chains anytime but without paying the high prices. This is great for anyone on a budget. All of my prices are based on my neighborhood grocery store and the coffee shops in my neighborhood. Prices will be different depending on location. All my prices and ingredients are based on a 16 ounce large size.

Step 1: Iced Mocha

McCafe offerings, which include premium cappuccinos, lattes, and iced coffees, scored higher in taste tests according to Consumer Reports magazine, and the drinks come with a lower price tag than comparable beverages at the coffeehouse chain.  McCafe Iced Mocha at McDonald's is one of my favorite drinks costing $2.99 however an at home clone is only 44 cents and tastes just as good.


1 cup coffee

¼ cup Hershey’s chocolate syrup

¼ cup half and half

Whipped topping


Make 1 cup of coffee with filtered water (Always use filtered or bottled water because tap tastes gross and isn’t good for your machine) and store in refrigerator until chilled.

 Fill a 16-ounce cup with ice made from filtered water.

 Pour the chocolate syrup over the ice, followed by the half-and-half and cold coffee.

Top with Whipped topping and chocolate syrup.

Serve with a straw.

I made the Iced Mocha, but I added a little peppermint mocha coffee creamer and it tastes AMAZING! Thank you!!(:

How long do the syrup's last? in a sealed bottle

Ah yes I worked at starbucks, The carmel machiatto "Lattice" had to be done perfectly everything could be made at home . Way over priced. I boycott starbucks. Besides water because the water is triple filtered.
