Making iced coffee at home is easy.  But rather than plain iced coffee, how about whipping up some totally maple-icious Maple Iced Coffee instead?  It's the perfect just-a-little-bit-extra-special sipper, easy to whip up by the glass for yourself or by the pitcher for sharing!

You know those times when you want something just a little extra-special to drink? ... a little pick-me-up treat, you might say.  Or, you've got some friends coming over and you'd like to have something a bit fun to offer?  Sure ... you could whip up a cup of coffee like usual.

But how about whipping up some totally maple-icious Maple Iced Coffee instead?!?

Oh, Maple Iced Coffee is the perfect just-a-little-bit-extra-special drink, easy to whip up by the glass or by the pitcher.  Make just one glass for yourself ... or a whole pitcher to share!  Or hey, keep a pitcher handy in the fridge for you to enjoy yourself all week long ... no sharing involved.

Made easy with a simple combination of Instant coffee, pure maple syrup, and ground cinnamon, Maple Iced Coffee is loaded with bold coffee flavor and the rich sweetness of maple ~ flavors that are great enjoyed over ice.  But trust me, it tastes fabulous hot, too, if you prefer.

Since Maple Iced Coffee takes advantage of the convenience of Instant coffee, there's no brew-time waiting, and the amount made can easily be flexed.  I love that.

When I want just a cup for myself?  I make a single glass.  When I want to serve a crowd?  A big pitcher's easy to make, too!

Maple Iced Coffee's flavor profile is also easy to tweak.  Simply change up the amount of pure maple syrup to adjust the maple'ness.  Personally, I love a more pronounced maple flavor so I tend to go heavy-handed with the maple.  Using a smaller amount will give a milder maple flavor ... play around with the amount to suit your personal taste.

At our house, we enjoy Folgers instant coffee for it's rich, bold flavor.  And when you pair Folgers' rich boldness with pure maple syrup for this easy iced coffee? ... Oh man, it's divine coffee maple-iciousness.
