Ingredients

Ice cubes made from 1 cup very strong, brewed hazelnut coffee (about 8)

1 cup very cold half-and-half or whole milk

1/4 cup Chocolate-Toffee Syrup, plus more for drizzling, recipe follows

Whipped cream, optional, for serving

Chocolate-Toffee Syrup:

1/2 cup pure cane sugar

3/4 cup heavy cream, warmed

6 ounces best-quality milk chocolate, chopped

Pinch of salt

1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Directions

  1. Combine the coffee ice cubes, half-and-half and 1/4 cup Chocolate-Toffee Syrup in a blender and blend until smooth. Pour into 2 glasses, top with whipped cream and drizzle with more of the syrup.

Chocolate-Toffee Syrup:

  1. Cook the sugar in a medium, heavy saucepan over medium heat, undisturbed, until it begins to melt, then continue to cook, stirring slowly with a fork, until melted and pale golden. Continue to cook, swirling the pan, until the sugar is a deep golden caramel.
  2. Remove from the heat and carefully add the warm cream down side of pan (the mixture will bubble and steam vigorously), return the caramel to the heat, add the chocolate and salt and stir until smooth. Remove the mixture from the heat and stir in the vanilla.
