Peppermint Chocolate Coffee Cooler

Peppermint Chocolate Coffee Cooler | The Gray Boxwood

Every holiday party needs a great drink. Early in the evening, I usually gravitate towards something bubbly and festive. But as the evening progresses, I like to serve something more dessert-like. This peppermint and chocolate coffee cooler hits all the right notes: the right amount of chocolate, cool peppermint ice cream and, if you please, coffee liquor.

For the chocolate sauce
  1. 1/2 cup sugar
  2. 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
  3. 1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch
  4. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  5. 1/2 cup water
  6. 2 tablespoons butter
  7. 2 teaspoons vanilla
For the coffee cooler
  1. 1 1/2 tablespoons instant coffee granules
  2. 3 cups whole milk
  3. 1 recipe prepared chocolate sauce (see above)
  4. 2 tablespoons sugar
  5. 3/4 cup coffee liquor (optional)
  6. 1 quart peppermint ice cream
For the chocolate sauce
  1. In a large measuring glass, mix together the sugar, cocoa, cornstarch, salt and water.
  2. Cook in the microwave for 2 minutes. Stir and cook another 2 minutes. Stir once again. If the mixture is thick and viscous, the sauce is ready. If it is runny, cook an additional minute.
  3. Add the butter and vanilla and stir until smooth. Set aside.
For the coffee cooler
  1. In a large bowl, combine the instant coffee and milk. Stir to dissolve the coffee granules.
  2. Stir in the chocolate sauce and sugar until the sugar is dissolved.
  3. Add the liquor, if using.
  4. To serve, place several small scoops of peppermint ice cream in glasses (like flutes) and top with coffee cooler.
