WONDERFUL! Here are the changes I made which really improved the flavor: 1 1/4 cups sugar instead of 1 cup 2/3 cup or coco powder instead of 1/2 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon On the directions I changed it to 3-4 heaping teaspoons per cup. DELICIOUS - makes wonderful gifts when you put it in jars and add a ribbon. Read More

Coffee flavor was a bit too strong for this mix but ended up having to use 4-5 Tablespoons not teaspoons to get any mocha flavor. Not sure I'd do this again. Read More

This is an awesome recipe! I doubled it and mixed it 2 cups at a time in the blender to make a finer mix. Perfect proportions of all ingredients. I'm going to do gifts of this a cocoa mix and a chai tea mix. Thanks! Read More

This was great! I doubled the coffee because I like to really taste the coffee flavor. I also added Cinnamon and a little vanilla powder! There is nothing that tastes better than mocha cinnamon and vanilla! I Will be making again and again! Read More

This was a good alternative to just regular hot chocolate and a nice change from the regular coffee rotation. I would make this again around the holidays. Thanks Rebecca. Read More

Delicious and easy to make. I did double the amount of instant coffee as it had very little coffee flavor. Also I used dutch processed cocoa for it's mild taste. This would be great as a gift for a teacher etc. Just fill a cellophane bag and put it in a cute Christmas mug. Read More

I am so happy to have found this recipe. I hade one very similar and lost it when we moved. I am delighted to have found it again. This mix makes a wonderful gift and an easiy way to add some flavor is by using the flavored creamer mixes. I love the hazelnut and irish cream flavors. Placed in a mason jar and toped with a swatch of festive fabric and twine will be one of my holiday gifts. I also serve this 1/4 cup mix for every 8oz of hot water. Read More

Excellent recipe not too sweet and would be good with water or milk mixed in. I did replace the sugar with the wildly popular "made from sugar" substitute and it is yummy!! Thanks! Read More
