Some of you requested the recipe for the coffee punch that we served at my shower. So, without further ado, ladies and gentlemen, please welcome Miss Delicious to your recipe box.
*1 gallon strong coffee
*1 1/2 cups of sugar
*2 tbs vanilla
*1 quart of half and half
*1 gallon of vanilla ice cream
*French vanilla cappuccino dry powder mix (The recipe calls for the General Foods Individual packets --3 of them; but, we couldn't find the packets so we just bought the big container and estimated the amount. Just add some and taste it and continue this pattern until your taste buds start to smile)
*instant hot chocolate mix (optional... and the amount to add is up to you. I think it tastes equally delicious with and without it)
I know, I know, don't you just hate it when recipes aren't specific or don't have exact measurements for each ingredient? But it's okay, you really can't go wrong with this one. It's impossible for anything with sugar and half and half to taste bad. And really, you should make it to suit your personal taste. Some people prefer it really sweet, while others like it to be more of a rich coffee flavor. The amounts listed above are close to perfect, in my opinion.
1. Brew your coffee, add the sugar and vanilla, and chill.
2. In a blender, add some coffee, half and half, cappuccino powder, and ice. Blend together and pour in punch bowl. (Do this about 3 times) Then, just pour the rest of the coffee and half and half into the punch bowl and add ice cream.
Now don't go talkin' too much about this stuff in front of your regular cup o' morning joe. You'll give it a complex.
