One quarter cup of cold, leftover brewed coffee sat on my countertop. So there would be no joe left behind, I decided to experiment and make a new kind of chocolate syrup. Over medium low heat, using an 8-inch iron skillet, I melted 1-2 tbsp of shortening (Spectrum organic, non-hydrogenated oil) and dropped in a cupful of dark chocolate chips. Then I slowly added the ¼ cup brewed coffee, turning down the heat to low to avoid boiling. Once everything was melted and fully mixed, I poured the concoction into a glass bowl and timed it for about 10-15 minutes to cool down. Finally, I drizzled the “chocojoe” syrup over my vanilla ice cream, took one taste, and SMILED.
