A sip of delicious

Happy Monday!
I hope that your weekend was filled with lots of fun and gave you some time to catch your breath! I know that it seems for me that there is always something demanding my attention, and now with Christmas only a little over a month away, it is GO TIME.
Speaking of the holidays, there are going to be lots of get-togethers, family functions, and parties to go to. Which means we are going to have to come up with some refreshments to contribute to that Christmas party, or find something that the family will rave about this year. I have just the thing for you!
Take a cute punch bowl of frozen coffee to your next event.

This drink has been a winner at several parties and family functions, especially for coffee drinkers, but people who like frappuccinos are usually fans of it too. And it is so simple to make. 

Here's whatcha need:
1/2 gallon of vanilla ice cream
1/2 gallon of chocolate ice cream
1 gallon of whole milk (substitute for 2% or skim for health conscious version) 
1/4 cup of instant coffee
1 cup of sugar (Splenda substitute for health conscious version)
1 cup of water

Here's whatcha do:
Combine instant coffee, sugar, and water in a small saucepan. Warm ingredients to melt coffee. Set mixture aside to cool. Place the 1/2 gallon of vanilla and 1/2 gallon of chocolate ice cream in the punch bowl. Add half of the milk. Add cold coffee mixture. Stir until blended well.

Simple as that.
And of course you can add some whipped cream and chocolate shavings on top to make it super cute and fancy, but as you can see by the pictures above, that ain't gonna last long once you set it out! This is sure to be a hit for any occasion.

Give it a try and be sure to let me know what you think!
