Mocha Frappuccino by the gallon

I searched Pinterest for a stead-fast 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 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.

Makes a little under a gallon

Sorry my blog has been so slow lately - I haven't been myself.......  I have had shingles and I have been quite lethargic.  I took the last of my anti-viral meds yesterday, and the shingles have seemed to calf down now (they just itch like a couple day old mosquito bite now and most of the nerve pain seems gone).  Back to quilting!  I don't remember if I shared this with y'all, but I am working on a new MBS project due in August.  This is the fabric I received!

Shibori!  With a hint of turquoise Moda Bella solid.  I tell ya, I am in love love love with this fabric!  I think I am going to have to keep this one - or find it a home close to me where I can have visitation rights, hehe :)

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!
