Foodie Byte: Espresso roasted gourmet coffee beans dipped in premium chocolate are widely available at coffee shops, specialty stores and artisan chocolate shops. Small and wonderful, this simple garnish adds lots of coffee house cache to the recipe. Dark chocolate covered nuts or fruit can also be used as a garnish. This frappe also tastes great prepared with specialty coffee ice cream flavors such as caramel macchiato swirled with caramel or java chocolate chip ice cream.

Preparation

  1. Combine 2 cups coffee ice cream, coffee liqueur and vanilla in a blender; blend until smooth.
  2. Pour into two glasses; top each with 1 small scoop coffee ice cream, if desired.
  3. Garnish each with chocolate covered coffee beans.
