Frappuccinos, & truffles

If your looking for a GOOD home-made frappuccino recipe here it is! We've had the recipe for along time but never made it! Don't know why?!

Easy Frappuccino
2 1/2 cups milk
1/2 cup fresh espresso
1/4 sugar

To make espresso, put 1/3 cup coffee grounds into coffee filter, run 1 1/2 cups water through coffee
maker (or make very strong instant coffee) mix together. We save empty frappuccino bottles & like to put them in those, or fill a glass & put cool whip on top with chocolate syrup, chocolate covered coffee beans, chocolate curls etc.   To make mocha frappe use 1/4 tsp. cocoa powder (or chocolate milk mix) 
For vanilla frappe use 1/2 tsp. vanilla.  Enjoy!

Simply Sensational Truffles
2 1/2 pkg. Bakers semi sweet chocolate, divided
(this would be 20 oz. & any chocolate will work including milk chocolate)
8 oz. cream cheese, softened 
Melt 8 oz. chocolate. Beat cream cheese w/ mixer 'till creamy; stir in melted chocolate. Refrigerate until firm. Shape into 36 balls. Place on wax paper covered tray. (Refrigerate again before dipping) Melt remaining chocolate. Dip truffles in until completely covered. Garnish tops with chopped nuts, peppermints or sprinkles. They are also good plain. Store in fridge.

I don't have a picture of these so I guess another of the coffee drinks will have to do! :)
