Hannah's Heavenly Mocha Blended

My 11 year old daughter Hannah has always loved coffee and coffee flavored sweets. If allowed, she would want to buy daily ice blends from the local coffee shops. Of course that isn't an option. So, she created her own version of this drink with ingredients that always seem to be in our pantry and freezer. Each time is a little different, and she has also varied the ice cream flavor -- vanilla, chocolate, mocha, etc. would all work fine. The key is the chunks that come from the chocolate bar or chips, and the real coffee flavor that comes from the grinds!
