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 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.
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.
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...

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 am looking for a Butterfinger cappuccino recipe. It's hard to find at stores anymore so I am looking to make my own.
By Josie Ann F.
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.
I am looking for a recipe for General Foods International Italian Cappuccino. They have discontinued this flavor.
By terri now 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 McIntyre 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.
