Makes 4 Ice coffees
Askinosie chocolate is an amazing little chocolate company located in Springfield, Missouri. Their chocolate is all fairly-trades with growerâ€™s stake in the process and 100% direct cooperation with the growers, which we support fully! In addition they have only 3 ingredients to their cocoa beans, cocoa butter (which they make with the same beans) and organic sugar! Truly spectacular chocolates and a truly inspiring story of the founderâ€™s desire to help.
Â½ cup medium brown sugar
Â½ cup water
Â½ cup Askinosie Chocolate-Davao Sipping Chocolate ( you can use other chocolate chips)
2 cups dark fair-traded coffee, brewed to taste
1 cup milk or more, any type to taste
Ice cubes or coffee ice cubes for the serious!
In a medium saucepan place the brown sugar and the water and bring to a boil (making simple syrup). Reduce the heat to low and simmer a few minutes until the sugar is totally melted and incorporated. Take off heat and whisk in the chocolate shavings or chips until totally melted. Divide the mixture up between 4 or 5 large glasses. (Itâ€™s ok that it is hot!) Fill the glasses with ice and them Â½ cup of coffee in each and then fill with milk and stir well, making sure to incorporate the chocolate syrup on the bottom. You can also do them in a bar shaker to optimize the mix depending on how you like it. In addition the ingredients can be blended after the syrup is made for an ICEE version!
