Coconut, chocolate, and almonds are combined to create a brilliant coffee treat inspired by the famous candy bar. The candy, which has been around since the 1940s, is often debated -- love it or hate it, there is no in between. Of course, as the famous commercial jingle tells us "Sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don't" -- if you would prefer a Mounds inspired drink, just leave out the almonds and follow the directions as listed below. Either way, you cant go wrong with this luscious candy bar inspired coffee treat. Enjoy!
Call it a guilty pleasure, tell me it is for kids, I don't care. For me, there is nothing like the taste of a KitKat bar! I have been forced, once or twice, because of a demanding schedule, to pull a snack from a vending machine. I am unashamed to admit that if available, my hard-earned quarters go directly to A37 (that is where the KitKat bar was located at my previous job.) This recipe combines the flavors of that wonderful snack with coffee, and ice cream resulting in one of the most delicious milkshakes I have ever encountered! Enjoy, and try not to hum that jingle. I dare you!
