Hi there! How was your 4th? Are you dealing with a food hangover? I hope so!
I wish I could say the same. Instead of rockin’ it out on the grill, we were inside working on our house. This darn project just won’t get done! What’s worse is that I had photos for you and now I don’t. For whatever reason, the USB cable is all jacked up and my computer won’t recognize any of my photos! GAH! I’m gunna cry! It’s another project to add to my to-do list for the weekend.
I figure there’s no better day than today to share a Chocolate and Vanilla Eiskaffee with you since I am fairly certain that many of you overdosed on burgers and mojitos yesterday.
So, are you wondering why I wrote Eiskaffee and not Iced Coffee?
Well! That’s a fair question to ask, and there’s a simple explanation for it.
Iced Coffee is coffee over ice. Okay, simple. BUT, Eiskaffee is not. Eiskaffee is coffee over… ice cream!
If you have never had Eiskaffee, and if you are a coffee addict and an ice cream lover, you need to stop whatever you are doing and get on this, stat! I LOVE this stuff!
This is the stuff that reminds me of long summer vacations, sitting at a cafe in my hometown, Bitola, Macedonia, spectator-style, on its most famous street, Sirok Sokak (wide street). Think Paris. My friends and I would sit there for hours, people-watchin’, kawffee-talkin’, braggin’ about our fun summer nights… To be 23 again!! And if you are 23, or 103, book your ticket now and go to Bitola. You won’t regret it.
You also won’t regret packin’ a few extra creamy calories with this refreshing coffee drink. It’s so simple that if you’ve never had it, you’ll probably say, why didn’t I think of that?! You can also make it with fat-free, or low-cal ice cream, if you wish, and save some room for a slice of pizza.
Normally, this drink is made with just vanilla ice cream, but I needed to boost the taste just a smidgen and that is why I make mine with both, chocolate ice cream and vanilla ice cream. You will also need a cup of really, really strong coffee. If you think you know strong, then add a bit more and make it stronger. After all, it’s a coffee drink we’re going for, not a milkshake.

I want to visit Bitola and also drink a good cup of this Eiskaffe. Yum!!
Just like an affogato, one of the best desserts ever. Your comment about your hometown and the endless hours with coffee and friends sounds so familiar!
When I was a barista we used to make this all the time (especially after the crazy morning rush!). I never knew there was a name for it!
I did not have enough mojitos last night, but I’d like several Eiskaffees, please! 😀
Oh my yum!
Coffee and ice cream. That’s a dream right there. I could use a few of those 🙂
What’s not to love when there’s coffee, chocolate, vanilla ice creams topped with cream and caramel?! Oh my yum!!
Yes please to coffee over ice cream!
Deliciously decadent or should that be decadently delicious. 🙂
Who needs to go to one of those fancy coffee places when you can make this at home.
