In a blender place coffee, chocolate syrup, smidgen of sugar and enough milk and 1/2 and 1/2 to make it just the right color...meaning whatever color you like your coffee! You can skip the half and half and just use milk, but it won't be quite as decadent.
Blend and pour over ice. Blending is important to get the bit of froth on top. Simply stirring won't give you the right taste. Don't ask me why...it just doesn't. Top with homemade whipping cream (please, for the love of good coffee, DON'T use Cool Whip!) and drizzle with chocolate syrup.
Mmmmm...so tasty! Knowing it costs me pennies on the dollar makes it even more delightful.
