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

This is the sort of "Gifts From the Kitchen" that we
enjoy making and giving too. There are so many
small kindnesses that we can do to make other
people's lives a little happier and better and to us,
that's what Christmas is all about.
Thank you for this wonderful addition to our list of
"gift goodies". All it needs is a pretty little card with
the instructions to go with it. Maybe a sweet red or
green ribbon and a baby pine cone.:-)
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.

Great idea! Thank You! I just got a Cappucinno maker for Christmas. Now I have a great recipe to use for it! And a handy way of storing it too!
Thanks for sharing,
Mix all together. To serve, use 5 tsp. in 8 oz. hot water.
Combine all ingredients. Store in airtight container. To serve: Place 1 heaping Tbsp. mix in a cup or mug. Add 1 cup boiling water and stir.
If you like your mix with a stronger coffee flavor you can increase your amount of instant coffee granules up to 2 cups...

I am looking for a Butterfinger cappuccino recipe. It's hard to find at stores anymore so I am looking to make my own.
I too love Butterfinger Cappuccino so I improvised and made up my own recipe for this. I use a dry mix recipe such as the ones listed here. I put the dry mix in my blender along with two to three full size butterfinger candy bars broken into pieces (I like mine to have a strong butterfinger taste) and process it for about 5 minutes on high speed until the candy bars are pulverized and totally blended in the dry mix. Since candy does not need refrigerated, you can keep this in an airtight container at your coffee station or cupboard.
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.
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.
