Recipe: Give a Gift Cappuccinno Mix

by Jenn @ Frugal Upstate on November 19, 2009

This recipe is actually from my sweet Mother-in-Law, who loves to make this tasty coffee mix up and give it away as holiday gifts.  Very tasty!

Dress it up as a gift by using a cute container, covering a coffee can, or placing in a jar and making a pretty topper (you can take off the strawberry & use something else).

Give a Gift Cappucinno* Mix

1C Powdered Fat-free Non-dairy Creamer

1C Instant Hot Chocolate Drink Mix

1/2C Sugar

2/3C Instant Coffee

1/2 tsp Cinnamon

1/4 tsp Nutmeg

Mix all ingredients together & store in an airtight container.

To use: add 3TBS of Give a Gift Cappuccinno Mix per cup of boiling hot water.

Variations:

Use full fat powdered creamer

Use flavored powdered creamer (adjust or leave out nutmeg & cinnamon accordingly)

Leave out spices and add 1-2 tsp of flavoring extract. Mix well-let sit for several hours and mix again (to distribute wet extract through dry ingredients).

*Yes, I know. This is not really cappuccino.  Real cappuccino is made with esspresso, a little bit of steamed milk and a lot of steamed milk froth.
