If you're like me, coffee gets you up and keeps you going through the day. During the cold winter months, it's nice to switch it up a bit and have something different once in awhile. I recently tried this homemade Swiss Mocha Coffee mix and give it two thumbs up! It tastes just like the store bought version and it costs a lot less to make!
Swiss Mocha Coffee Mix
1/2 cup instant coffee
1 cup sugar
1 cup instant dry milk powder
1/4 cup powdered coffee creamer
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
1/4 cup vanilla flavored instant pudding mix (optional, but very good)
Measure all of the ingredients into a clean, dry bowl. Use a fork to combine everything evenly. Powder everything in a blender.
To Prepare: Measure 3 or 4 tablespoons into a coffee cup. Fill it up with hot water (about 3/4 cup) and stir to dissolve.
This is a very sweet and chocolaty coffee. I like to have a cup after lunch as my "dessert". Decaffeinated instant coffee, instead of regular, could also be used.
And when you store it in a fancy container like the vintage canister featured below, it would be a beautiful gift for someone this holiday season or as a special way to pamper yourself.
Such a perfect pair!
