When it comes to mocha, I’m a sucker. Bigtime. So, as I was scrolling through a recipe book, this title jumped out and bit me on the nose. Couldn’t have been more obvious that I HAD to make this following our dinner last night, so I added the ingredients to my grocery list and hit the store.
One of the ingredients on this list is coffee liquor, and that made me smile. Coffee liquor is just all kinds of awesome, especially when you throw it into a dessert. When I went into the liquor cabinet, it seemed as though we were running low on Kahlua. There was enough for this recipe, but this just means I’ll have to put that on the liquor store list. It didn’t take long at all for the coffee granules and Kahlua to mix well in the microwave, 30 seconds was plenty…and it smelled delightful.

Combine coffee mixture with chocolate ice cream, using electric mixer and beat well until combined. Stir in chocolate chips, transfer to container with lid and store in freezer.
Make it lite! Use reduced fat chocolate ice cream and 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips!
