Thanks for telling me that. i was looking at some at Amazon and they sure seemed like they do the same job as a FP, just not electric.

I have a blender around here somewhere. Probably sitting in the same place a FP would if I got one.

Yes, they do have a pretty strong coffee flavour! I made them for the last wedding I did and the bride worked at Starbucks. All her co-workers said they would be a real hit there because they tasted just like a Starbuck cappuccino!

I'm hoping it's OK to ask this here. It seemed silly to start a thread in the appliance section and then copy and paste this recipe...

Will a 4 cup capacity mini food processor make this?
I don't know if 4 cups is the total food and liquid the FP will handle, or merely the size of the container and you aren't supposed to fill it to capacity.

Thanks

Here's my thought.
Most regular sized food processors are 8 cup.....
you could halve the recipe, since it's just you anyway....
But looking at it I think the 4 would work....
Pretty sure they mean total 4 cups of stuff you can put in there.
I'll make them tomorrow and see.
:)

Halve the recipe? The ingredients don't add up to four cups, or do you lose some "processing power" in the smaller processors?

Thanks Suzi

Hmmmmmm, now I can't decide whether to frost them with coffee frosting or chocolate frosting (I'm huge on mocha!)

Thanks, Laurie!

ummm.... I dunno. I dont think so. Never had a problem with using small amounts in the big processor.... ok except for wasting the space in the dishwasher....

now I gotta see what the volume is when I make a full batch... I may just heat the oven up now!
