I love Target. I could spend an absurd amount of time wandering through it. I have to say they do an exceptionally good job at making products visually appealing and thus magically hover into my cart. I don’t know what kind of Jedi mind tricks they use at that place but I can go in just needing to pick up paper towels, and come out with some designer scented candle and pillows to match a couch I don’t even have.
So, last time I was there I only wanted to grab a new toothbrush. The man at the entrance was giving out free samples and coupon books. They got me.
There was a $1 off coupon for their Archer Farms coffee, so I made my way to the coffee aisle and picked up this little gem of “Dark Chocolate Truffle” coffee. This, I have to tell you, was my best investment of the day. I promptly headed home and decided to knock-off Starbucks. You know, since I
spent my life savings on 483 other things I didn’t need that day really really love a good homemade frappucino.
Homemade Dark Chocolate Mocha Frappucino
Archer Farms Dark Chocolate Truffle Coffee
2 tbsp sugar
1/3 cup non-fat half and half (or your creamer of choice)
non-fat whipped cream
3 cups of ice
Step by Step:
1 – Brew 2 cups of strong coffee (I used 4 scoops for 2 cups), stir in sugar and let it cool.
2 – Once it’s cooled, pour it into your blender and add in the chocolate syrup, half and half, as well as the ice. Pulse it until you’ve got a frozen blended coffee concoction.
3- Pour into your beverage container of choice, top with whipped cream and a drizzle of chocolate syrup.
