Cappuccino Punch

I've been thinking about how to spice up the blog. I'm thinking it might be fun to put some of my favorite recipes on here once in a while. So...let's start with the cappuccino punch I made for Mandy's shower a couple Saturdays ago. It was AWESOME! I actually had never made the punch before. I had it at a bridal shower about a year ago and got the recipe from the hostess. But, I had to wait until an appropriate time to make the punch - I mean, it's not like I just whip up a punch for Landon and me for dinner at night...So...this was my first try at making it - it was delicious! Oh, and if you don't like coffee, you obviously won't like this. Here's the recipe:

Cappuccino Punch

2 oz instant coffee
16 oz can chocolate syrup
1 cup sugar
4 cups boiling water
2 cups cold milk
2 QT cold milk
1 QT ice cream (I used fudge ripple)

Combine instant coffee, syrup and sugar in boiling water. Let dissolve and cool. Add 2 cups of milk and chill in fridge up to 3 days. When ready to serve, place ice cream in punch bowl, pour chocolate coffee mix over ice cream and add 2 QTS of milk. Stir gently and serve.

I got lots of compliments on this punch!

And, as an aside, I don't have any news on Amy, but I'll let you know when I do! Right now she's still in the hospital, just waiting for more answers. I visited with her last night, and Brad arrived while I was there - so her husband is back with her! Please keep praying!!
