THE BEST Iced Coffee EVER, I Promise!

My iced coffee has made me somewhat famous among my little group of friends.  I'm not sure I can take all the credit, as I have merged a couple recipes to make it my own.  I'll go ahead and share it here so you can enjoy it as well!

I got the idea from pioneer woman's iced coffee recipe but hers looked like too much work for me so I simplified it.

You will need:
1 can sweetened condensed milk (local friends- cheaper at our walmart than our Kroger)
Half and Half

Brew some dark roast coffee- I suggest dark roast because I want it to be a strong coffee.  I like to use French Roast.  Depending on what I have on hand I use my Cuisinart Grind and Brew and either brew ground coffee or whole bean.  If making a pitcher of iced coffee I make a whole pot (12 cups) and fill the grinder or filter to the top with coffee.  Once brewed I add 1 can of sweetened condensed milk and a couple cups of half and half.  Refrigerate.  Serve over ice with a straw and I promise you'll go back for more!  To avoid watered down coffee as your ice melts- freeze some of your left over coffee in your ice cube trays.  (thanks pinterest)

Per Pioneer Woman's advice I do love to slurp it up from a mason jar with a straw!  It's just so summery, you can't go wrong.  Unless of course you drink it all day every day, because then you may gain a few.  :)
