Decadent and yummy easy iced coffee. A fun way to save the coffee in the bottom of your coffee pot and make a delicious iced coffee!

My husband, Brian and I decided to make a fun video showing you our way of putting together this simple drink. This recipe would make a stellar party idea for hot summer days. 

What I really like about Making This Iced coffee:

  • you can adjust the coffee strength by how many ice cubes you use in your glass. If you like it stronger, add more cubes.
  • If you want a little caramel sauce or flavorings in it go ahead and toss it in.
  • Prefer it a different way? Be creative. Use what’s in your cupboard and have fun with this yummy coffee drink.
  • The whipped cream is so good with the chocolate sauce on top. However, it is completely up to you how decadent you want to drink your coffee.

Can’t you just see these on a side table? Having an adult beverage night? Try it with a little vodka and kahlua! Actually if you want to go into alcoholic coffee drinks we have a few at the bottom of this post for you.

Can you believe that I had my first iced coffee just a couple of months ago and it blew my mind... I typically like my coffee black and short and don't have a sweet tooth but for what ever reason I really enjoyed it. Never made it at home though, will definitely give this a try :)
