How to Make Iced Coffee with Fresh Mint and Chocolate

How to Make Iced Coffee with Fresh Mint and Chocolate. Because you can’t have mine.

I have a pet peeve. Coffee beverages that just don’t taste like coffee. Where all you can taste is the creamer or sweetener. I’m like “where did my coffee go?”

Sad face.

When I drink iced coffee, I want to taste the coffee.  Not a milk shake.

This is not a problem with Folgers® Coffeehouse Blend. No matter how you choose to brew, the rich, bold coffee flavor is there. Wake up, sunshine!

But where’s the chocolate??? I told you we had fun making this iced coffee recipe.

The chocolate is in the ice cubes. Yep, we blended cocoa powder, more coffee (because…well…coffee) and creamer and froze them in ice cube trays.

No more watered-down iced coffee for me!


Homemade coffee + chocolate cream ice cubes.


You can add more creamer and sweetener to your slightly minty, coffee-loaded beverage if you’d like.

Me? I liked the way the flavor of this Mint Chocolate Iced Coffee changed as the ice cubes melted.

The sweetener and creamer and chocolate swirls into the minted-coffee as the cubes melt, making each sip just a little sweeter. But you will always taste the coffee! And that’s the best part.


This Mint Chocolate Iced Coffee is lightly flavored with fresh mint, cold brewed for a smooth flavor, and served over chocolate-cream ice cubes.

      Thank you so much, Christina! We have a flower bed FULL of mint, and when we had a chance to try this coffee I wanted to try to get that flavor in the drink without overpowering it. Turned out great!
