It's A Recipe!

For all you coffee lovers like me, here is a recipe for a "Almost Famous Mocha Frappe".  Here's the recipe!
This recipe makes four drinks.
For the Coffee Ice:
3 tablespoons sugar
2 Cups of warm strong coffee

For the chocolate syrup:
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup unsweeted cocoa powder
1 ounce of milk chocolate, finely chopped
1 1/2 teaspoons honey
1/2teaspoon of vanilla extract

For the Frappes
1 cup of milk
whipped cream, for topping

1) Make the coffee ice: Stir the sugar into the coffeee until dissolved, then let it cool (it doesn't have to be cold because warm liquid freezes better anyway).  Pour into a 16-cube-icetray and freeze until solid, they say about three hours. ?

2) Make the chocolate syrup: Combine the sugar and cocoa powder in a saucepan and slowly whisk in 2/3 cup of hot water. Bring to a simmer over medium heat, whisking, until the sugar dissolves, 3 to 5 minutesl do not boil. Remove from heat and stir in the chocolate, honey, and vanilla until smooth. Transfer to a bowl and refrigerate until cool.

3) Make the frappes: "Puree" 8 coffee cubes, 1/2 cup milk, 1/3 to 1/2 cup of chocolate syrup and 1 cup plain ice into a blender utnil smooth. Pour into 2 glasses, then repeat to make 2 more drinks. Top with whipped cream and more chocolate syrup.

Enjoy!
