seeing as how i was already thinking about amy t and card-making, it occurred to me that i hadn't got to play in the last two challenges at fusion, and i was really missing that. imagine how psyched i was when i realized the colors and shapes of said cocoa mugs would let me play along pretty easily with the current challenge!
here's my lazy-girl version of
1/4 c. light soymilk
1 tbsp. hershey's sugar free chocolate syrup
1 tbsp. maraschino cherry juice
12-16 oz. cold coffee (or about 2/3 the size of your favorite travel mug)
coffee ice cubes
1/4 cup fat free whipped topping
1 1/2 tsp. mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
place soymilk, cherry juice and syrup in the bottom of your favorite travel mug or large glass and stir until they are well-combined. add cold coffee and continue stirring, leaving a little room for ice cubes, and the topping if desired. enjoy at home or in the car! ps: there are a million variations on this idea, you can use any type of syrup paired with any flavor of soymilk or creamer you enjoy!
and now why not check out all the details on facebook or amy's blog and start planning your own bid for holiday coffee-loving world domination?
*it's the essential oils in coffee which give it the lovely fragrance and flavor, but they do leave a very faint residue on plastic kitchen items. thus i have one specific ice cube tray, and one specific pitcher, that i only use for coffee.
**i don't like very sweet drinks, at starbrucks i ask for HALF the amount of syrup in pretty much any beverage, so you might like to add a little more syrup than i do!
