Frothy Cappuccino Chilled Punch is great for a holiday brunch or to add elegance to a quiet evening at home. This recipe serves 36 but you can easily scale it up or down to serve a larger or smaller number of people when you need a festive beverage option.


  • 1 gallon freshly brewed, double-strength ground coffee*, chilled
  • 3 cans (12 fl. oz. each) NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Evaporated Milk, chilled, divided
  • 1 cup granulated sugar, divided
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 qt. chocolate ice cream
  • NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Baking Bar, made into curls (optional)
  • Ground cinnamon (optional)


POUR coffee into large punch bowl. Place 2 1/4 cups evaporated milk, 1/2 cup sugar and vanilla extract in blender; cover. Blend until frothy. Add milk mixture to coffee. Repeat with remaining evaporated milk and remaining sugar. Add small scoops of ice cream to punch and top with chocolate curls.

LADLE punch into cups; sprinkle with cinnamon, if desired. Makes 4 1/2 quarts.

* Measure 2 rounded tablespoons of ground coffee to every 6 ounces of water. Vary measurements to suit your individual taste.

HINT: To make chocolate curls, carefully draw a vegetable peeler along edges of a bar of NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate.

"why didn't you make this before?"

The other day, when I had made this superb looking punch to my husband who is a great coffee lover, I could not help, when, after having a sip, he simply exclaimed "why didn't you make this before?" with absolute ecatasy.

Had an Extreme Chocolate party, everyone brought their favorite chocolate dessert. I included this punch with my brownie cake and what a hit. The next day I had to email recipes to many people! So simple to make and such great flavor!

Recipe can be halved

by C. Cindy , Vestal, NY on Jan. 2006

I was looking for something different to serve at a game night I was having. At first when I saw the amount it made I was concened. I decided to halve the recipe. It was a breeze to do so. You can keep the same amount of vanilla extract if you like. It's a nice treat, and was perfect for all the munchies we served during the event. Can't wait to make it during the summer for a cool treat.

Soooo Good!
