Today’s afternoon snack was unbelievably delicious – it was a chocolate milkshake with a twist. One of Wendy’s toffee coffee twisted frostys sounded nice, but I had no plans to make the 30-minute drive to go get one.
I wasn’t sure what to do to imitate the flavor since there’s no toffee-flavored anything in the house right now. I finally settled on a chocolate milkshake with coffee flavoring. I only added a tiny bit of instant coffee powder, but the amount of richness it added really surprised me. As a general rule, I do NOT like mocha-flavored coffee, so I was surprised I liked this as well as I did.
Here’s how to make it. This is the small mixer cup for my Magic Bullet knockoff (gotta love Aldi!). It holds about a cup, maybe a cup and a half, tops.
Fill your container most of the way with chocolate ice cream. I used homemade because that’s all we had in the house.
Add a splash of milk. In my case, use the rest of the gallon. It was maybe a third of a cup.
Dump in about a half teaspoon of instant coffee granules. This was decaf.
Insert into blender base. . .
Blend. . .
Enjoy. This never made it to a fancy cup. It was fantastic.
