It is sweet, too sweet for my taste and as chocolate on its own it's not my favorite either. I much prefer Godiva, Goldkenn or Lynn's chocolate. What do you do when your colleague give you a gift from her trip to Australia and you tried it but don't really like it and yet you can't really dump it into the waste paper basket either? Well, dump I did, but into my hot coffee when I ran out of sweeteners! And that's when something miraculous happens!

I made the most wonderful Cafe mocha I've ever made in my life! And for most part of my life, I've been paying Second Cup in Canada lots for their Ice Moccaccino!

I google and found this recipe for Ice Mocha from Coffee & Tea Warehouse.
  • 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.

You know what? Save all that trouble. Simply dump some Cadbury Flake into your hot coffee as I did and you've got yourself a great drink! Trust me, you won't regret it!

oh wow! I'm going to try this immediately! I have a habit of mixing avocado with Hersheys choco syrup but this sounds delish!! Cadbury flakes aren't available here either but I think I can improvise... Thank you for this!

OMG, I've been wanting to try one of these for so long!  I learned about Cadbury Flakes a few years ago through watching its sensual, old school commercials on Youtube and reading up about how Cadbury girls have become iconic.  Who knew that the same people who created Cadbury Creme Eggs could create such a product?  Unfortunately for me, Cadbury Flakes aren't available where I live and I've been meaning to try them every time I travel, but I forget.  My friends have found them in Hong Kong and France though.  Next time!

By the way, that mocha recipe that you posted looks dangerous!
