Super Yummy Delicious Coffee Punch

So, last weekend I threw a Lingerie Shower on Friday, a Pampered Chef Bridal Shower on Saturday, and a Tball Party on Sunday.
I think I have crossed the line to completely crazy.
It was good though because I cleaned the house once and got all of the entertaining done in ONE WEEKEND!
(Pics of the parties to come, once they magically jump off of my camera and on to the computer)
I wanted to share a recipe that I used for the Pampered Chef bridal shower.
We had it at 11:00 am so I chose to serve brunch.
I had mini quiche, chicken salad crossiants, fruit salsa and cinnamon chips, and a  veggie tray. I also put out the leftover "Friday Pasta" from the night before.
(More on that later.)
I decided to use one of Ms. Fielder's (Brett's mom) recipe for coffee punch at the brunch. It was so good and I learned that it needs to be doubled because we were scraping the bottom of the punch bowl.
(Think Wendy's frosty with coffee....yumm-o)

Teri Fielder's Coffee Punch
1 cup boiling water
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup instant decaf coffee (Folgers)
**Mix these together and refrigerate for a few hours**
2 quarts of milk (i used 2%)
1 quart of vanilla ice cream
1 quart of chocolate ice cream
***about 15 minutes prior to serving add milk, ice creams, and coffee mixture to punch bowl***

Remember, I would reccomend doubleing this if you plan on serving more than about 10 people because it is very addicting. Also, don't freak if the ice cream is clumpy when you combine everything. Just use a potato masher and get most of the clumps out. You could also soften the ice cream for about 15 minutes prior to combining ingredients.
