Oh, my! This was a delightful coffee beverage. I served it hot (using boiling water), but the scoop of ice cream cooled it to a lovely temperature so that it was perfectly in-between (temperature-wise). The drink is creamy, flavorful, and spectacular tasting. It's good enough to serve as dessert, but it would also be a fabulous hot coffee drink to make for your sweetie on Valentine's Day. I think I'll have to have another! Thank you, ImPat. This was a super big hit with us.

A delicious easy to make coffee Pat. I loved it. Made half the recipe just for me. Used Blue Mountain Jamaican Instant Coffee, extra dark chocolate syrup, pure vanilla extract, 1% milk, homemade vanilla sugar and vanilla bean ice cream for one terrific treat. I'll be enjoying this for the next few days. Thank you so much for sharing. Made for Beverage Anyone? Tag Game.
