It’s also known as “Iced Mochaccino”. It’s similar to iced coffee. What’s the difference? Iced coffee is filled with chunky ice, and doesn’t have chocolate (unless you want it, of course) and is simply sweetened with either a flavored syrup or sugar.
Just a note: don’t buy that flavored syrup stuff. It’s usually mostly corn syrup. There are lots of good, healthy recipes (usually just sugar or honey plus water plus flavor extract) that you can make yourself. And it tastes the same, if not better.
So anyway, back to the title recipe. I recommend using French roast coffee since it has a strong, dark flavor that compliments the chocolate and creamy milk. If you want the drink to be extra icy, freeze the coffee.
The homemade fudge sauce is a must. It’s so unbelievably easy and drop dead amazing that you’ll want to consume the entire batch all at once (example: spoon + cold fudge sauce = dangerous). But don’t. Not yet. You want to make the drink below first. And oh, another thing you can do with the Hot Fudge is Hot Cocoa. Just stir in 2 tablespoons into a cup of hot milk. It’s the easiest hot drink ever. Yum.
Hope you’re all enjoying the summer!
