There’s something about coffee with a friend. We seem to relax a little more, worry a little less, enjoy the moments and memories. We sip and give each other the chance to share our lives. Just the aroma of a coffee shop makes me miss my girlfriends! (And, I honestly just had to make my afternoon Iced Coffee treat!)
It isn’t just coffee shops that bring girlfriends together. Sometimes it’s a coffee treat at your home or that you take over to her house. We’ve got some caffeinated ideas and recipes from Guest Blogger CHRISSY TAYLOR:
Don’t you love spending time with your best girlfriends? I know I look forward to my coffee time with the girls. I NEED that time! No one can laugh with me, vent with me, cheer me up when I’m feeling down and give me that encouragement like a girlfriend. I love showing my appreciation to my girlfriends and how much their friendship means to me with yummy treats! I had some ideas for a fun summer drink and treat for the next time my friends and I get together. I had a shopping trip to Sam’s Club planned and knew I could get supplies for our next Girlfriend Get-Together.
One of the ways that I try to save money for my family is buy in bulk at Sam’s Club. On one of my recent trips to pick up household supplies, I was excited to find a TWO pack of International Delight Mocha Iced Coffee for an amazing price! It is such a great feeling to find one of those products that I love, use regularly and for a great price! By buying my Mocha iced coffee at Sam’s Club, I am able to save $.40 per serving! That is a savings that really ads up over time! If I have two glass a every day for a month, that is $22.40 that I saved!
I started thinking that the International Delight Mocha Iced Coffee is delicious on it’s own, but I love creating recipes and I had a couple ideas for this product!
This is so yummy, refreshing and involves one of my FAVORITE ingredients: CHOCOLATE!
Summer Mocha Float
- International Delight Mocha Iced Coffee
- Coffee House Caramel Macchiato Creamer

Chocolate Caramel Macchiato Cupcakes Recipe
- 1 (18.25-oz) Chocolate cake mix
- 1/2 cup International Delight Caramel Macchiato liquid creamer
- 1/3 cup vegetable oil
- 3 large eggs
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and line two cupcake pans with liners. Mix all ingredients together and fill your liners to 3/4 way full. Bake for 22 minutes or until done. After the cupcakes have cooled add your whipped cream when you are ready to eat, drizzle with caramel sauce and add a chocolate coffee bean!
These are two delicious recipes that I thought would be fun to share with girlfriends! Having an International Delight Iced Coffee party on the back deck with some great friends and conversations sound like a perfect summer afternoon!
