I was really tickled pink when I was chosen as part of the Foodbuzz Tastemaker group to come up with a recipe for an iced drink featuring Godiva Coffee.
I had one slight problem – well, maybe two slight problems – well, one slight problem and one potentially major problem – I don’t own a coffee maker AND I don’t really care for coffee – except in ice cream or the very rare, I mean very rare, iced coffee loaded with cream and sugar!
But this was Godiva Chocolate Truffle Coffee and the aim here was to make it an iced drink.
Certainly, I could come up with SOMETHING that would appeal to me. I bounced ideas off my husband (sigh – like throwing rocks at a wall and expecting them to bounce back at you) and my friend Matt, but I kept coming back to there isn’t a better combination than coffee and chocolate. My ideas were running around in my head with no end in site and then I won a West Bend Milkshake Maker over at Bluebonnets & Brownies.
I had the perfect idea! A Black & White Milkshake.
I know, I know, a back and white milkshake – as Tom keeps pointing out – is traditionally vanilla ice cream and chocolate syrup. But this is my Black & White Milkshake, and it IS chocolate and vanilla ice cream, so Tom feel free to send the milkshake police over any time.
- 2 C cold Godiva Chocolate Truffle Coffee
- 2 scoops Vanilla Ice Cream
- 2 T chocolate syrup
- 2 scoops Haagen Dazs Java Chip Ice Cream
- Chocolate Syrup for drizzling
Brew coffee and let cool completely.
Add cooled coffee, chocolate syrup and vanilla ice cream to milkshake maker or blender. Blitz. Pour into a glass. Add a scoop of Java Chip Ice Cream to side of glass and a drizzle of chocolate syrup.
If that ain’t good for anything that ails ya, I don’t know what will be!
