I'm a self-proclaimed coffee-holic. Even on the hottest summer day, I love a good cup of Joe. I created this recipe to beat the heat, and still get my coffee fix.

Wow, was this good. So good that I made it two days in a row. Once exactly as written, the second using homemade cantaloupe sherbet, because I ran out of vanilla ice cream. They were excellent prepared both ways. I garnished with spiced whip cream for an afternoon delight. Thank you so much for sharing this treat. Made for Spring PAC 2014
