Directions: Place powdered creamer, instant coffee granules, and sweetener in a glass. Add 2 tbsp. hot water and stir until ingredients have dissolved. Transfer to a blender.
Add ice cream, soymilk, and ice to the blender. Blend briefly, until smooth, and then pour into a glass. Stir in the Cool Whip, until uniform. Add chocolate syrup and toffee-chocolate bits (if you plan to top your drink with Reddi-wip, set a few candy bits aside), and stir gently to swirl them in.
If you like, top with Reddi-wip and sprinkle with remaining candy bits. Now dig in!
Oh, you fast-food restaurants with your crazy concoctions. We may not love the insane calorie counts that come with these creations, but we really DO love the inspiration. Take the new Coffee Toffee Twisted Frosty from Wendy's, for example. It's a fun mix of vanilla, chocolate and coffee flavors, frozen and speckled with chocolate-covered toffee bits. Pretty sweet! Sadly, one of those freakish frozen cups contains over half-a-thousand calories and a whopping twenty grams of fat -- and it's not even all that large! We at HG say, "Thanks for the bright idea, Wendy!" Our version combines guilt-free favorites (yay, fat-free ice cream!), secret ingredients (hey there, instant coffee!), and one very decadent item for which there's just no substitute (OMG, candy bar!). And you'll have fun putting it together and enjoying it in the privacy of your own home (as opposed to waiting in line at the drive-thru and attempting to make it home before it melts).
CHEW ON THIS: Stop the presses! Over the weekend, we missed out on National Coffee Milkshake Day (July 26th)! Make up for it by blending yourself a tasty Toffee Crush Coffee Shake. National Coffee Milkshake Day will certainly forgive us all...
