Introduction: Candy Covered Iced Mocha Frappé
This is a DELICIOUS frozen drink, I might even say It's my favorite! The wonderful blend of coffee and chocolate is unmatched in any other form. Don't forget to check the last step for alternate recipes/add ins.
BTW Sorry for the bad pictures. Camera wasn't happy :)
Step 1: Ingredients/Prep
This here is the BASE recipe. It is the starting point of the journey to the center of the Mocha Frappé. While it is delicious on it's own, there is a list of suggestions on the last page.
The Base Recipe is:
2 Cups Milk (2% works best)
2 tbsp Instant Coffee (Decaf or Regular)
1/3 Cup Chocolate Syrup (Hershey's is best!)
4 (or so) Ice Cubes
2 Any crushable candy bar (Crunchy works best) (I prefer Kit-Kat)
The Night Before:
Make Ice Cubes
Take 3/4 cups of the milk and put it into an ice cube tray. Freeze overnight.
Crush up candy bars and freeze.
The next day...
Step 2: BLEND!
Start with the 1 1/4 cup of milk not used for the milk cubes.
1. Pour that into a blender along with the Chocolate Syrup.
2. Blend quickly on a low speed into chocolate milk.
3. Add the instant coffee to the still-mixing blender. Tun the blender on high.
4. One by one, add the Ice and Milk Cubes. Wait until it is smooth before adding the next cube.
Step 3: Garnish
Pour the mocha frappé into four glasses.
Top with the frozen candy.
Drizzle Chocolate Syrup around the top of the glass.
Step 4: A Matrix of Ideas!
Substitute instant coffee and 1/2cup of milk (cubes) for 1/2 cup of strong coffee(frozen.)
Adding a frozen banana to the recipe instead of ice cubes really brings out the flavor.
Peanut Butter- add 1/4 cup chopped peanut; garnish with Reese's Cups.
Kids- reduce coffee; add 4 drops of food coloring; garnish with rainbow sprinkles.
Vegan-substitute chocolate syrup for melted carob chips/carob powder; Use soy milk; top with carob chips.
Rich-no ice cubes; add 1/2 cup of milk (for more milk cubes);use 4/10 cup of syrup (estimate).
