Brown Sugar Iced Coffee

"I always drink a creamy coffee, whether it's hot or cold. I was surprised to enjoy this coffee so much. It's different in that it uses brown sugar. Note: the amount of coffee has been adjusted in the recipe, making for a more mild flavor"

    Roxygirl, I have been making this iced coffee a lot lately, and found I needed to edit my previous review. I ended up using 1 cup of water, and adding a 1/4 cup of the half-and-half, 4 tablespoons dark brown sugar, and 6 rather large-sized ice cubes. I just heated the water along with the coffee in the microwave, then let it cool in the fridge for about 35 minutes, then blended it all in the blender for about 35 seconds. I have enjoyed this iced coffee either topped with Cool Whip, or Reddi Wip. There's one more thing I did want to mention... I found this makes exactly 24 ounces of iced coffee. Thanks for sharing this recipe Roxygirl. It's definitely a keeper!!

    I also made a few more instant coffee, and less water. I like to taste my coffee, but I think the brown sugar added a different touch. (a good one). The next time I'll try what Lilkari123 did w/the 1/2 and 1/2. Good idea!!..

    This was awesome! It's gotten warm again in the Hinterland Autumn, and I was tired of iced tea, so this hit the spot...I've got three rambunctious little boys at home this afternoon, so I needed a little "pick me up" to keep up with them! Thanks Roxygirl! Made for PAC Fall 2007.

    Yumm! Tastes like Starbucks, but way cheaper! I used 1 cup of water, and added some FF half and half in place of the 1/4 c. water. I bet it would be good with some choc. syrup, too, like an iced mocha! Thanks for a quick coffee drink that I don't need to drive to Starbucks for!

    Quick and SO good! I added a touch of vanilla soy milk and used 2 teaspoons instant coffee. The brown sugar adds a wonderful flavor. I look forward to trying it with dark brown sugar, too. Thanks, Roxygirl, for sharing!


Hi everybody, I’ve been using “Zaar” website for the last year but ready to commit myself to adding my two cents worth (including some photos). I live with my DH and two great kids and one crazy dog in the foothills of Colorado. We have a great view with lots deer and red rocks. I come from a food-loving family, including my nearby sister who is willing to discuss "what's for dinner" first thing in the morning! I’ve loved cooking every since I was a teenager. I don’t work so I have lots of time to cook my latest craving. I love to try and duplicate dishes I enjoy from restaurants. I have a lot of cookbooks, but now use mostly “Zaar” recipes and from “Cooks Illustrated.” I love reading cookbooks (library) and like the old classics from Betty Crocker to backs of food labels. I love to research lots of recipes before I decide which one to make.
