I love coffee…but not Starbuck’s…I prefer Dunkin’ Donuts if it’s hot…if it’s cold i.e. decadent, I love McDonald’s Frappe Mocha…I am a bit hooked {I’ve only had 3 but I think of them pretty much constantly}.  I think they’re expensive so I was looking for a recipe to make them at home…an internet search brought up several recipes…I stuck a few together and came up with a pretty good copy {sorta, kinda, maybe}.

I brewed a whole pot of coffee {I was planning ahead} and waited for it to cool off.  I filled an empty ice cube tray with some of the coffee {placing the ice cube tray in the freezer} and then putting the remaining coffee in a plastic container with a lid in the refrigerator.  I let it chill overnight.

The next morning I was ready to roll.

I placed 8 coffee ice cubes (more or less to suite your taste} in my blender, added 1 1/2 cups of coffee, 1/4 cup sugar, 1/4 cup chocolate syrup, 1 1/2 cups of milk and 1/2 cup of half and half to the blender.  I pulsed/blended the mixture just enough to  mix.

This made enough for 1 large glass and 2 smaller glasses of Mocha Frappe.

p.s. If you happen to know where the lid is for my blender please let me know…. holding a potholder over the top while pressing the buttons is a bit cumbersome and messy.
