Mocha Frappuccino by the gallon recipe

I searched Pinterest for a good large-batch recipe for Mocha Frappuccino - but all I found was recipes for small batches.....  I make it occasionally, but have never had a 'recipe' that I wrote down - and sometimes I have hit the nail on the head and sometimes I've missed the mark with my 'little bit of this, little bit of that' approach.  So, this time, it turned out GREAT, so I had to write it all down so I can repeat it next time.  It tastes a LOT like Starbuck's Mocha Frappuccino, just delicious!  Maybe a little TOO delicious!

1 pot fresh brewed coffee (I did 10 cups)
1 c. sugar
6 cups storebought chocolate milk
2 cups milk (I used 1%, but you could just use whatever you have on hand)
1 c. heavy cream

Dissolve sugar in the hot coffee, cool, then refrigerate.  Add milk, cream, and chocolate milk.  Shake and serve over ice.  Delicious.

Makes a little under a gallon.

quilt repair and new MBS project

I did finish the repairs to the quilt top I was repairing:

Now I need to get it basted - this will be a tied quilt with poly batting to as closely reflect how it was originally.  The backing and binding will be pink (binding saved from original backing, but new pink backing will be used).

Then, on Friday, I got this bundle of wonderfulness delivered:
This one will be FUN FUN!  This one is scheduled for Moda Bake Shop for August 10th (my son's 25th birthday coincidentally!)  The Shibori prints are just awesome!   Love love LOVE!
