Need a way to use up that little bit of leftover coffee? Try this fast & easy ice cream syrup. You could use it over brownies, pound cake, or to flavor a milk shake. I found recipe in GOING SOLO IN THE KITCHEN (great cookbook for singles or doubles)! The sour cream variation is my favorite.

  4. Variations: Add 1-2 teaspoons bourbon or coffee liqueur (Kahlua is wonderful) or stir in 1-2 teaspoons sour cream.

This is a very rich syrup that I served with pound cake. Because of the richness of flavor, I divided the amount and served it to two people instead of one. This is also a very quick and easy recipe to make. (made for My 3 Chefs game)
