Parlor Coffee Float

What a simple 'jazzed up' coffee drink!  Perfect for pampering yourself.

After seeing this recipe in our local newspaper, I knew I had to try it. 

Sit down, put your feet up and enjoy sipping this delightful beverage. 

Smooth, creamy and sweet - just how I prefer my coffee!! 

Made with simple ingredients you may already have on hand...
Coffee...ice cream...chocolate syrup...half and half...

Top with whipped cream and a cherry if you want to go 'all out'. 

You're welcome!
