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.


  • 1 1/3 cups instant coffee, with or without caffeine
  • 1 1/2 cups plain powdered coffee creamer
  • 2 cups hot chocolate mix, reg. or sugar-free
  • 1 cup sugar or sugar substitute
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg


Mix well and store in air-tight container.

To use, mix 3 teaspoons per cup of boiling water

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.

Makes two 12 ounce jars


  • 1 cup powdered non dairy creamer
  • 1 cup powdered chocolate drink mix
  • 2/3 cup instant coffee granules
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 3/8 tsp. ground nutmeg


Have ready 2 (12 ounce) canning jars. Put the instant coffee into a food processor, and process to a fine powder. If you don't have a food processor, put it into a large plastic bag, and crush with a rolling pin. In a large bowl, combine creamer, chocolate mix, instant coffee, sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Stir together until well mixed. Spoon into the jars.

Attach a note to each jar: Cappuccino. Mix 3 Tbsp. of powder with 6 fluid ounces hot water. Makes 16 servings

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. :-)


  • 2/3 cup instant coffee
  • 1 cup non-dairy powdered coffee creamer
  • 1 cup powdered chocolate milk mix
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 3/8 tsp. nutmeg


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.

I am looking for a recipe for General Foods International Italian Cappuccino. They have discontinued this flavor.

By Terri from MI

Answer This QuestionWas this helpful?Helpful? Yes

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

Answer This QuestionWas this helpful?Helpful? Yes

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.

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.


  • 3 cups Splenda or other sugar replacement to equal 3 cups
  • 2 cups non-fat dry powdered milk
  • 16 oz. non-dairy coffee creamer
  • 1 cup instant decaf coffee
  • 2 cups no sugar added hot chocolate mix
  • 1 piece of vanilla bean per container (optional)


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...
