Fantastic!! If you like coffee shop mochas you HAVE to try this (and I used to work at Starbucks!) I made a single serving to test it out before making as gifts. I used store-brand skimmed milk powder. Nescafe espresso powder and light brown sugar. It foamed up beautifully and there was no 'grime' at the bottom of the cup. I agree with a previous poster that it needed a touch more sugar. I added a single serving pouch of sugar (1 tsp) to my cup and that was perfect. I will add some extra sugar to the mix when I give it as gifts. Read More

I was happy to find this recipe as it did not include the non-dairy creamer. However the taste was lacking. As others found I too thought it was not sweet enough... easy to fix add more sugar though that didn't seem to fix it. So I did as others had suggested and put the mix into the blender/food processor. The taste didn t get any better and it still did not dissolve completely when mixed. There was a greasy layer on the top and it had a bitter aftertaste I think it was the semi-sweet chocolate chips. Anyway I m sorry but this just didn t taste good to me.:( Read More

I loved this mix! The rest of my family did too. I did not have mini chocolate chips so I used M&Ms instead. It was great. Read More

Another great recipe from Allrecipes! I ended up using 6 Tb instant coffee and 7 Tb brown sugar (had to adjust because coffee was strong). Put the choc chips thru food processor so they would be evenly distributed although the whole chips looked pretty in the mix. Used Tasters Choice Vanilla Roast (decaf) and it was dee-licious! Tied small whisks onto jars with ribbons and gave as Christmas gifts. Everyone loved it! (whisking works as well). Read More

I put all the ingredients in my food processor to make a smooth mix - even the chocolate chips. Worked well. I ignored the part about using a blender and just mixed it with a spoon. I thought it was one of the worst things I had tasted. THEN - I made it per the directions (except used part milk) and was quite pleased. Throw a piece of candy cane in the blender with it. Yummmm!
