This is a fantastic recipe. I have made it several times and without fail, receive several requests for the recipe afterwards. I never seem to have the time to scrape it with a fork. I just mix the ingredients and toss it into a 9x13 pan and then freeze. I then take an ice pick and carefully break the frozen mass into smaller chunks and shred the iced coffee with my food processor. I end up with a lovely, fluffy snowcone mixture. I then refreeze it in plastic containers. Perfect every time!

Simple and delightful. I scraped a few times while it was freezing. It's like an adult snow cone. :) I will make this again.
