    The making of Icedmocha

    1 1/2 cups strong hot brewed coffee
    3 tablespoons packed light brown sugar
    1 1/2 tablespoons chocolate syrup, such as Hershey’s
    1 cup ice cold milk
    1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
    Handful or so crushed ice
    Lightly sweetened whipped cream, for garnish
    1 small piece semisweet or bittersweet chocolate, for garnish

    1. Combine the hot coffee and brown sugar in a large measuring cup and stir until the brown sugar dissolves. Remove from the heat and stir in the chocolate syrup. Transfer to a shallow bowl. Cool briefly at room temperature, then chill until ice cold. You can accelerate this step by putting it in the freezer, but just make sure it doesn’t start to ice.

    2. Combine the chilled coffee, milk, and vanilla in a small pitcher; stir to blend. Divide the coffee between 2 serving glasses, adding a small handful of crushed ice to each. Top each glass with whipped cream then grate a little chocolate over each one. Serve with straws.

    Makes 2 servings

    ENJOY!

    First off... good chocolate... then less milk.
    .
    I used to love mochas from certain cafes in Berkeley.... but pretty much everywhere else they are way too sugary and milky, when they should be coffee and chocolatish.
    .
    Trieste is San Fran still makes a good one.

    I dont know. Never made one either. All I know is really good coffee, really good choc (not too sweet), and not too much milk.
    .
    Now, most mainstream cafes get it all wrong and OD on the milk and sugar.... and its vile. But thats the mainstream American taste, I suppose, if you grew up on Lucky Charms and non dairy creamer.

    Sounds complicated. How different is it than getting an iced coffee at Sbucks and putting sugar in it.

    In the OP, he should have said that Iced Mocha has influenced him. For some reason thats political. Also, he should have been a liberal.

    that's not an iced mocha... that's coffee with chocolate and milk. more like a caffe mocha.

    a latte is shots of espresso with milk. a mocha is a latte with chocolate. an iced latte/mocha is same concept, except with ice. OPs recipe sounds too complicated... i've been a barista for two years.
    i'm only happy when i'm riding my bike
