Iced Coffee Mocha “Punch” & Save $1.50 on 1 K-Cup #DrinkCommCoffee

Iced beverages are QUEEN in the summer months. Iced coffee is the KING in my kitchen.

Every single morning, I’m whisking up my iced coffee. Some mornings it’s a double batch…because summer also means late nights at our house. It’s the perfect PERC of summer…iced coffee. (See what I did there?!)

My favorite way to keep cool and stay caffeinated in the summer months is with a delicious glass of iced coffee.

There are so many possibilities…but this is one of my favorites! If you’re ready to get a little creative and have some fun with your morning cup of iced java, here you go…

I used Community Coffee to make this “punch” and boy, oh boy! So so so delicious!

Make your coffee.

And then mix in this amazing combo of flavors to your taste preference!

Then add some ice cream…but I’m not calling it a ‘float’ because I want to enjoy this in the morning…so it’s a ‘punch.’ 😉

I adore the different options in the Community Coffee line and for this recipe, I used their Cafe Special medium roast. But I think this would also be delicious with their dark roast and some dark chocolate syrup (mmmmmm!) or their breakfast roast.

Community Coffee is a family owned company that goes back 4 generations in brewing delicious coffee for us. They are committed to bringing their customers rich heritage, premium coffee beans and dedication to their community.

You can learn more about them and their products on the Community Coffee website. (They also have a special deal going for bulk online orders here. And other coupons are below…)

For this ‘punch’ or ‘float,’ you could also make as Peppermint Mocha, or Caramel, or Vanilla, or Hazelnut. Maybe even with some fruity syrups, like Raspberry.

And if you need a dairy-free option, then use almond or coconut based milk and ice cream. So many delicious options – but I’d recommend making using the below ‘ratio’ – 4 cups brewed Community Coffee, 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk and 1/4 to 1/2 cup flavored syrup. Then top off with ice cream…and enjoy!

This ‘punch’ would be perfect with brunch, or for a fun summer gathering. (Just be sure to use decaf if you’re serving it later in the day!)

You’ll slurp this amazing iced coffee down in no time and will be fog-free and ready for another day of summer fun!

Moroccan Burgers

Omgoodness, I love homemade burger patties!

There’s so many different flavor combos you could come up with and these Moroccan burgers are YUM-next-level-YUM!

The patties are made with grated onion, fresh parsley and some other spices to give them a hint of Morocco. Then, they are topped with caramelized onions.

Yes, they are worth the wait!

Start caramelizing the onions in a small skillet when you start the grill. By the time the grill heats up and the burgers cook, the onions will be ready.

And you’re taste buds will want to leap for joy as you devour this burger 😉

Moroccan Burgers

Yield – 4 servings

Preparation Time – 10 minutes

Cooking Time – 10 minutes


  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1/2 small white onion, grated
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 4 tsp chopped parsley
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 4 hamburger buns
  • 2 small white onions
  • 1 tsp white sugar
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • Chips, as side dish
  • Fresh veggies, as side dish


  • Preheat the grill.
  • Grate 1/2 white onion.
  • Combine the ground beef and grated onion with the minced garlic, parsley, paprika, cumin and salt in a medium mixing bowl. Form into 4 patties.
  • Place the patties on the grill tray or veggie basket. See note about ways to keep patties together when grilling. Grill for 5 to 6 minutes per side, or until internal temperature should reach 165 F.
  • While the burgers are cooking, caramelize the 2 other onions in a small skillet. Slice the onions into half-moons, then add the olive oil and sugar to skillet and saute the onion slices over low heat for 20 – 30 minutes. Stir every few minutes.
  • Prepare fresh veggies.
  • Serve Moroccan Burgers with caramelized onions and a side of chips and veggies.
  • Special Notes: If you don’t have a tray for your grill, put the patties in the freezer for 30 minutes to help them firm up and hold together better when grilling. Or you could grill them from partially frozen. Alternative cooking method: wrap the patties tightly in foil and place them in a 350 F oven for about 5 – 10 minutes until the desired temperature is reached.

No Bake Patriotic Pretzel Peanut Stacks

Hello gorgeous! This just makes me happy…the red, the white, the blue.

The feelings of gratitude and the thoughts of hope that these colors spark.

This fun Memorial Day & July 4th Day snack will be a hit at your party, BBQ or with the kids!


It calls for all the fun colored candy melts, as well as star sprinkles (if you want to go all out!)

They are ‘no-bake’ so they are fast to prepare and you just wait a bit to let them set.

But if you can’t wait, you’ll have a delicious crumbly mess of a snack!! 😉


A quick note: I used small pretzel twists and grabbed a handful and then crushed them in my hands. I’d say they are “coarsely crushed.”
