Add your recipe of choice to the linky.
1/2 cup brewed coffee
2 cups Ice (more or less depending on how frosty you want it)
3 TBL Caramel
3 TBL Sugar or sweetener
1/4 to 1/2 cup of your fave liquid creamer
Add coffee, sugar, 2 TBL caramel, creamer to blender (we have a bullit which works great). Blend well. Add ice and keep that baby going til it thickens. Pour into cups and add some whipped topping. Take remaining caramel and swirl over top of creation and you have your own Frappe.
(used to flavor milk, other drinks, cakes, and as a topping for ice cream)
2 cups sugar
2 cups extra, extra strong coffee
Bring sugar and coffee to a boil in medium pan. Stir until sugar is dissolved, turn heat on low and let it simmer for 3-5 minutes. You should stir this several times while simmering. Let cool and put on container (I use a coffee creamer bottle) and store in refrigerator. Sometimes I add almond extract or vanilla extract for more added flavor!
Coffee Marshmallow Treats
(One of our faves…takes a lil time to make, but sooooo worth it!)
3 packages of unflavored gelatin
1 cup cold coffee, divided into 1/2 cups
1.5 cups granulated sugar …
1 cup light corn syrup
1/4 tsp salt (coarse or sea salt)
1 teaspoon vanilla or you can add food coloring if you want
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup cornstarch
1. In the bowl of your mixer with the whisk attachment, empty the 3 packets of gelatin and add 1/2 cup cold coffee.
2. In a sauce pan mix the 1.5 cups sugar, the other 1/2 cup coffee, 1 cup corn syrup and 1/4 teaspoon coarse salt. Put the lid on and bring it to a boil.
3. Remove the lid and let it cook until it reaches 240 degrees. Temperature is important with this.
4.When it hits 240 degrees immediately remove it and pour it into the mixer on top of the gelatin. Start the mixer at a slow speed.
5. That is going to be whisking for a while, so prepare your pan. use a brownie pan and cover it in plastic wrap. Coat the plastic wrap with a bunch of non-stick cooking spray. In a bowl mix 1/2 cup powdered sugar and 1/2 cup cornstarch… and generously sprinkle it around. Pick the pan up and shake it to coat the top and sides. Pour the excess out and then back in, make sure it is coated really well because your marshmallows will be sticky, and if there’s too much you can always brush it off later when the marshmallows are done
Ok, back to your mixer. The whole mixing process will take about 8-12 minutes. Your marshmallows mixture is going to about double or triple in size. You will know it is done when it stops growing. At that point add your teaspoon of vanilla or whatever flavoring you want to use and mix one more minute.
Pour it in your prepared pan: Smooth out the top: And coat with a bunch more of the powdered sugar/cornstarch mixture: Let it sit overnight (or at least 4-6 hours) Remove from pan and cut.
There you have it… a few ideas to maintain your coffee addiction!
