Although nothing replaces a perfect cappuccino from a coffee shop barista, these convenient mixes make it possible to have delicious coffee drinks at home without an espresso machine. This page contains recipes for instant mixes for cappuccino.
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

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
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.
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.
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.
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
