This is so good, I will never buy the store made stuff again. A couple helpful hints - I put the sugar, and instant coffee in my coffee grinder and gound them up to powder. Also add the nutmeg to the grinder with the sugar and that will help it dissolve better. I also added a bit more sugar than the recipe called for because I like it sweeter. I bought little bags at a packaging store, and gave this out for christmas gifts. I got a lot of compliments on it. Thanks for a great recipe! Read More

I took the advice of using 1 c coffee. I found this too be very strong and bitter (I used Max. House). I kept messing around with the mix and finally got it to taste right. All told I had 3 1/2 c creamer 1 c choc. drink mix 1 c coffee (used food processor to grind) 1 c sugar 1/2 c Ghiradelli sweet baking cocoa and 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice. This turned out much better as good as store bought. Read More

This time I used French Vanilla Creamer and it is SOOO much better than the plain creamer. This is the 3rd batch I've made and by far the best. I left out the cinnamon and nutmeg too. Read More

I sub'd espresso powder for instant coffee. Yummy! I gave some jars of this at Christmas in pretty baskets filled with fancy coffee mugs and other coffee related items. Everyone has remarked how great this mix is! Read More

After reading the other reviews I made a small modification when I made this recipe. I used 1 cup of coffee instead of 3/4 cup. I liked the result -- not nearly as sweet. I'll try this one again. Read More

I'm in the southwest so I wanted a mix that would work hot or iced this one does the job. I went ahead and used 1 C. of coffee left out the spices and used Irish Creme flavored creamer instead of plain. My secret for smoother texture: I used powdered sugar in place of granulated which works excellent in this recipe. I mixed this using 24 oz. hot water to 4 Tbsp. mix put it over ice and topped it with a little shot of milk really good! Finally a tasty (and cheaper) version of my favorite iced drink! Read More

This is a an easy and quick gift idea. I also used a food processor to blend the ingredients together. By making a recipe and a half I was able to fill a one quart wide mouth canning jar to the top. I covered the top with a fabric top and tied an ingredient card to the jar with a raffia ribbon. Read More

This is so good! I made it exactly as written and I could drink it every day. I imagine this would also be good with vanilla creamer. Read More
