Recipe by Debra1113

Make your own Cafe Mochas and Mocha Frappuccinos at home and stop spending so much money at those fancy coffee houses! :) This recipe has helped me save a LOT of money and still enjoy what I love! This is from the wonderful book "Cappuccino Cocktails". NOTE: The prep time does not include chilling time in the fridge.
