When making this coffee, I cut the recipe in half. This is pretty good, but I found the coffee didn't thicken up as much as I had hoped. The coffee flavored ice cubes didn't really harden in the freezer, plus I had to use a butter knife to remove the coffee cubes from the ice cube trays. I ended up adding the entire flavored coffee cubes to an empty cool whip container, (placing it in the freezer) and I would scoop out the slightly frozen flavored coffee with a spoon when I would mix up a drink. I found 3 tablespoons of the coffee mixture, is equal to 2 coffee flavored ice cubes. I did enjoy this beverage even more, by adding 1 tablespoon of Smucker's Caramel Sundae Syrup to the flavored coffee before blending it. Plus I also drizzled some of the caramel syrup ontop the coffee which I also topped with some Reddi Whip Whipped Topping. I think the caramel syrup makes this iced coffee taste even better. Thanx for the recipe GingerlyJ.
