This is an alternative to the small "cans" of mocha cappuccino! Except for the instant coffee, I keep everything used in my cabinets all the time anyway. My hubby enjoys having a cup of cappuccino and reading in the evening before bed. Those premixed cans are expensive for what you get.
I was thrilled when I found this, he likes it better and it last much longer! You can mix more to taste; heavier on coffee or use a little more chocolate mix. First batch I made according to recipe and he didn't like the spices, Next batch, I left out the cinnamon and nutmeg and now he is hooked. :-)
Place instant coffee into food processor and process until it becomes a fine powder, (alternative place in plastic storage bag and crush with rolling pin).
In large bowl combine all ingredients and mix well. Store in jar or jars with tight lids.
Add 3 tablespoons per 6 ounces.

Instant cappuchino mix that has no sugar and is decaffinated as well. Makes a wonderful gift for friends that they can't find at the local store. I have looked everywhere for it and never found both sugar free and decaf.
Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl.
Put the ingredients in pint size jars (or whatever size you want), first putting piece of vanilla bean in the bottom of each jar.
Be sure to include a recipe card that lists ingredients and the instructions for use: Directions: 2 heaping teaspoons of mix to one cup of very hot water. Can be topped with whipped cream if desired

If you like your mix with a stronger coffee flavor you can increase your amount of instant coffee granules up to 2 cups.

It's easy to make and a lot cheaper than store-bought. I love this stuff. To me it is not a cold weather drink only, I love to wind down at the end of the day with a cup and either a good movie or book.
Mix well and store in air-tight container.
To use, mix 3 teaspoons per cup of boiling water

Here are questions related to Cappuccino Mix Recipes.
The recipe for Cappuccino mix sounds great, but since I use no sugar in my brewed coffee, would I then decrease the amount in this recipe, or omit it altogether?
By Christine from Ontario, Canada
When you make a batch of Cappuccino mix, try omitting the sugar. If you don't like the taste, just add a small amount of sugar and combine it in the mix.
You just have to experiment with home made mixes, that what I always do.
I am looking for a recipe for General Foods International Italian Cappuccino. They have discontinued this flavor.
By Terri from MI
I've never had the Italian Cappuccino but here is a copy cat recipe for their Cafe Cappuccino and it's enough for quite a few cups of coffee:
(I suggest placing the hard candy inside a paper towel and mashing it a bit with a heavy rolling pin or hammer before placing ingredients in the blender)
1/4 cup Powdered Creamer
1/3 cup Sugar
1/4 cup Instant Coffee
1 Orange flavored piece of hard candy
Process in a blender on liquefy until well blended.
