Caramel Chocolate Frappe

Caramel Chocolate FrappeThe definition of Frappe (or Frappé, to be accurate) is a bit contentious, especially in terms of how it differs from a milk shake.

Wikipedia says Frappé or Frappe may refer to:

Food and drink

  • Frappé coffee, an iced coffee beverage made from instant coffee originally from Greece
  • A milkshake in New England
  • A drink similar to the trade-marked Frappuccino
  • A frozen fruit-flavored dessert made with shaved ice, similar to sherbet
  • An Italian name for angel wings, a sweet, crisp pastry made with deep-fried dough

And some people think that it always contains ice cream, and is really what we mean when we say milkshake, and that a real milkshake actually doesn’t contain ice cream, but rather milk and some flavoring, sometimes with ice, shaken or blended until the milk is frothy.

I don’t like contention with my frothy milk beverages. 

This Caramel Chocolate Frappe was a joint venture between my son Charlie and myself.  It has only three ingredients.  One of them is Milk Chocolate Morsels with Caramel Filling.  So I let Toll House do the heavy lifting there.  I did not get paid to say that, by the way; these morsels are my Holiday 2014 addiction.  They have other versions that I plan to try in this shake.  If you wanted to make a grown up version of this I’m sure a shot of Bailey’s or something of that nature would not be unwelcome.
