  1. 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.
  2. In a large bowl, combine creamer, chocolate mix, instant coffee, sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Stir together until well mixed. Spoon into 2 - 12 ounce jars.
  3. Attach a note to each jar that reads: Cappuccino: Mix 3 tablespoons of powder with 6 fluid ounces hot water.

Someone rated this recipe quite low and made it quite clear that this isn't really cappuccino. Another person rated it low because they had trouble getting the mix to dissolve. First, let me state that this is a great mix. There are so many variations to suit any taste. Who really cares if this is cappuccino or not? The real reason we love it is the taste which is wonderful. And if you have "mud" in the bottom of your cup is you either didn't stir, use hot enough water/milk or you used too much mix. I love this and so does 99.999% of the rest of us. Thank you, Cindy!


My daughter and I love to make this for gifts. I like to use Splenda instead of sugar and I use only a 1/4 cup of the Splenda. We also like to use different flavors of the non-dairy creamer like french vanilla but any kind is great. We will find out what flavor everyone likes and custom make it for each person. Everyone that has gotten one loves them and has asked for more jars through out the year. Thanks Cindy


I thought this was delicious. For Christmas I put the mix in little jelly jars and tied with raffia and added a pretty lable I made on the computer. I added it to little gift boxes with biscotti and loaf of fresh bread (see Fabulous Homemade Bread). Perfect for teachers! My sons teacher even called during the holiday break and asked for the recipe.
