My Husband is in the artillery and every time he goes out to the field this is what he and the guys on his gun request. They were the ones that came up with the name for this wonderful drink. I love to bring it with us when we camp as well. We love it!

If I could give more stars I would!! Absolutely loved this recipe. I wanted a really good drink mix and had heard about this one and decided to give it a try even though I do not drink coffee. I am so glad I did because it is deelicious and Iwill be making several batches to give as Christmas gifts. I checked several other mixes before trying this one and after reading the reviews and noticing that in every recipe people would change something because it was not sweet enough did not have enough coffee taste etc. that I decided to make this one because no one changed anything. It is truly perfect as is. Thank you so much CATWWALK16 for sharing this recipe. Read More

It's ok but cut way back on the cinnamon and nutmeg. Actually I wish I would have left them out. These spices take over the taste of everything else. Read More

I've been looking for a good quick powdered coffee recipe for my husband who drives truck for a living. He needs a pick-me-up for those early start times and slow days. THIS. IS. IT. It was easy enough that my older son could help me make it for his Dad and just the right measurements of everything called for in the recipe. And he loves it. So do his co-workers.;) I will add that I bought most of the ingredients at Grocery Outlet so don't feel like you have to buy expensive products at the regular grocery store. Off brands or factory seconds work just as well as the name brand labels! Thank you for sharing this recipe. I'm incredibly grateful. EDITED 12/23/08: I made a double batch of this for my family. This filled eight grande latte cups with just a little left over. I filled them to the brim slapped the lids on and covered the drink hole with a sticker. Worked out perfectly. Read More

Pretty yummy, although a little heavily spiced for me, so I cut down on the nutmeg by half and the cinnamon bit a tiny bit. I also cut down the sugar by a half a cup (don't forget the hot chocolate has sugar too). I used decaffinated instant coffee so I wouldn't have to worry about drinking it before bed, and I've tested a few different types of hot chocolate now, and Swiss Miss and Goodiva (about the same) are the best. Cadbury was so/so. Suprisingly the Goodiva wasn't much chocolatier. I was looking for Ghiradelli but couldn't find just their drinking cocoa. My boyfriend loved it too so I made him his own container. Great for the upcoming winter months! Read More

I replaced the coffee creamer with dry vanilla flavored creamer. This made it more sweet for my tastes. Loved it! Read More

When I made this I thought it layered so nicely and looked very pretty that I could give it out as gifts so that is what I'm going to do. Once I drank it I thought it had plenty of flavour very good it will make good Christmas gifts. Read More

This is really nice with just the right amount of flavour and sweetness. Nothing needs to be changed I tried a recipe similar to this but it had no sugar in it this in my opinion is much better. I really liked this and will use it from now on...thanks Catwalk!! Read More

Okay I must say that having been a barista for several years I am a bit of a coffee snob. As such- instant coffee is a big no-no. Plus I like my coffee black...nothing at all in it or I have no interest. Still I was thinking about making this to give as gifts with my baked goodies so I wanted to try it for myself first. And I am glad I did because it is amazing! So perfect after a long and chilly day. I am totally hooked! In anticipation of not really caring for it I bought the cheapest instant coffee hot chocolate mix and creamer I could find and it is STILL incredible. Not only will I be putting this in my holiday gift baskets I will be making it for myself and my daughter (a Starbucks fanatic) to enjoy throughout the winter. Thanks for a terrific recipe CATWALK16:) Read More
