A delicious pairing (Or: Coffee and chocolate ice cubes)

Yesterday Marco and I made two sorts of ice cubes:

On the top you have coffee ice cubes (just make coffee and let it cool, then put it in the freezer). The other is chocolate and agave syrup ice cubes (1/4 cup agave syrup, 1/4 cup cocoa powder, and two cups water — receipe taken from here).

Coffee ice cubes (top) chocolate and agave ice cubes (bottom)

And no, I have no idea why the middle three ice cubes are lighter in color. Weird!

  2. It looks very nice, Niki! 🙂 Reminds me of when my mom used to make ‘icecubes’ with coconut milk and sweetened condensed milk. ❤

    Looks yummy. My wife and I are trying to relocate there next summer for work. Did it take you long adjusting? We have no idea what we are walking in to.

    • Personally no, it didn’t take long at all for me. Everyone speaks English and there are a lot of Amercian shows on tv for example. My husband is also quite American at heart (though he’s technically a Dutchie). I also work at an international organization so I speak English during the day, though my Dutch is strong so I speak more Dutch at home and outside of work.

      So it really depends on where you are coming from. 🙂

  4. Ah okay, in that case I’m not sure which post you meant. 🙂

  5. Haha. A fan of the comment, yes, but he hasn’t tried the recipe mentioned in your comment yet.
