Does anyone out there have a recipe for instant swiss mocha coffee? Maxwell house international coffees makes the original but it's way too expensive (when you gobble up as much as i do).

Well, my morning drink every day is a HEAPING spoonful of plain baker's unsweetened cocoa powder, a couple big scoops of Splenda, a slightly heaping teaspoonful of instant coffee, stirred together in the bottom of my 16oz cup. then I fill half full with boiling water, stir for 20 seconds to avoid having lumps, then fill it on up with milk. Very satisfying. Enjoy your experimenting!
Swiss Mocha Coffee Mix
1/2 cup instant coffee
1 cup sugar
1 cup instant dry milk powder
1/4 cup powdered coffee creamer
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
1/4 cup vanilla flavored instant pudding mix (optional, but very good)
Measure all of the ingredients into a clean, dry bowl. Use a fork to combine everything evenly. If you are ambitious, you can powder everything in a blender. I don't always do this because I am lazy. You do get really impressive results from it though, and it is easier to do than one would expect. Transfer the mixture to a resealable container, or a pretty jar.
To Prepare: Measure 3 or 4 tablespoons into a coffee cup. Fill it up with hot water (about 3/4 cup) and stir to dissolve.
This is a very sweet and chocolaty coffee. It is almost as good as hot chocolate for curling up with on a cold winter night. If you decide to make it a bed time snack, then you might want to use decaffeinated instant coffee, instead of regular. The vanilla pudding mix makes your homemade mix dissolve better in water. It also gives a pleasant vanilla flavor to the coffee that marries perfectly with the rich chocolate.
One that hasn't been mentioned is Tang, the orange instant breakfast drink. Years ago I made the ones with cocoa + instant coffee. You can always add vanilla when you make regular coffee.
I like the idea of pudding mix for flavor. I'de try adding a small amount to one cup just to try before I'de make a whole batch.
If I was doing it today, I'de use artificial sweetner, powdered milk, and some coffee creamer to the base flavor to try and the pudding mix. I'de experiment.
Goofs can always be watered down, spiced up, or dumped.
You may get lucky.
Don't know if this is what you're looking for but I thought it was worth a try! Good luck!
