We needed to batch for the masses as we walked the neighborhood with the kiddos and wanted something that would give us the extra energy shot to get through the evening with kiddos hopped up on peanut butter cups and sour patch kids.

This lives in my fridge all fall and winter. It is amazing. For a fun presentation, check out these skull ice cube mold trays. You can freeze cold brew instead of water and float coffee skulls in the bowl.
