"Because my family and I are not coffee drinkers, I knew I'd need to alter this recipe if I wanted to use it. I did, and it worked out great! I leave out the coffee and instead, I replace it with more instant chocolate drink mix. I think it tastes fabulous and my in laws requested I serve it at thanksgiving this year!"

"I made this punch several times over christmas, but put a bit less ice cream in then called for, because the bowl wasnt' big enough.

 
I think it would be okay without the coffee flavour, then it would be more just like a choc milk shake."
