Super-Yummy Creamy Coffee Punch

Look what I made today:

The. Best. Punch. Ever.  (If you like coffee, which I do.  A lot.... ;)

1 gallon chilled brewed coffee
1 Tbsp maple flavoring
2-1/2 cups Hershey's syrup
1 gallon vanilla ice cream

Combine first three ingredients and mix well. Pour this delightful concoction into a punch bowl and scoop 1/2 gallon vanilla ice cream on top. Serve to happy party-goers.  (Add more ice cream scoops to the bowl as your party or shower progresses, as the first ice cream melts into the punch.)  

This makes a great bridal shower punch or baby shower punch, or a delicious beverage for any party!  Just be prepared to write our the recipe for dozens of people because they will beg you for it. ;)

If you have enough time, dust entire bowl (or better yet, each cup) with nutmeg or cocoa powder, and top servings with a chocolate straw or chocolate shavings.... there are tons of options! :)

I forgot to take a photo of my punch today, but this is basically what it looks like (image source and alternate recipe here):


  1. Oh, that sounds yummy! Do I have to have a party to make some?! ;-)

  2. No party is REALLY necessary! :) Hope you all are having a sweet weekend. We did some freshening up in our flower beds this afternoon (crocuses are blooming and irises and daffodils are peeking up too. Spring is coming!!!!!) and I hope to go to bed early. Whoo-hoo! :)
