12 Days of Breakfast ~ Day 12 ~ Mocha Punch

So I'm going to end this shenanigan with a recipe that I have not yet tried, but have cut it out and put it in with my recipes to try someday.  Someday hasn't come yet, but it looks so good.  Basically like a chilled, melted mocha milkshake.  But calling it "punch" makes it sound like something a bit better.  I don't know.  But if you are feeding a thirsty crowd, this would be fun to try!  The recipe comes from Taste of Home.

Mocha Punch

6 cups water
1/2 cup instant chocolate drink mix
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup instant coffee granules
1/2 gallon vanilla ice cream
1/2 gallon chocolate ice cream
1 cup heavy whipping cream, whipped

In a large saucepan, bring water to a boil.  Remove from heat and add chocolate drink mix, sugar, and coffee; stir until dissolved.  Cover and refrigerate 4 hours or overnight.

About 30 minutes before serving, pour mixture into a large punch bowl.  Add ice cream by scoopfuls; stir until partially melted.

Garnish with dollops of whipped cream.

Ta-da!!!  All done!


  1. good job, and tried making a mock up of this recipe several days ago thinking I would serve it tonight. It is good and I am! Merry Christmas, hope to see you at candlelight service?

  2. Hmmmmm, something is funny about your counting, but that punch looks really yummy!
