Family Favorites Friday: Bavarian Mint Coffee Mix & Hot Chocolate Mix


It is finally starting to get cooler here which makes perfect weather for hot beverages. 
While we love hot teas, we also like flavored coffees and hot chocolate.  

Today, I am sharing two mixes that I like to make; one for hot chocolate and one for a flavored coffee mix.


 Flavored coffee mixes are delicious, but expensive, so I make my own.  Everyone loves this Bavarian Mint Coffee Mix.  It is wonderful for gifts or for keeping for yourself.  You can use regular coffee or decaf.

The mix makes more than this small jar.  I shared.

 BAVARIAN MINT COFFEE MIX

4    candy canes, regular size
1/2    cup    powdered coffee creamer
2/3    cup    powdered sugar
1/2    cup    instant coffee
4    tablespoon    cocoa



Break peppermint sticks into pieces. Add all ingredients to blender; blend until well mixed. Store in an airtight container. Use 1 tbsp mix to 6 ounces boiling water. 
Servings:  approximately 34 



HOT CHOCOLATE MIX

1 cup cocoa
2 cups powdered sugar
2 cups non-fat dry instant milk
2 cups non-dairy powdered coffee creamer

Put all ingredients in blender and blend until well mixed.  Store in airtight container.  Use 3 tablespoons of mix to 6 ounces boiling water.  

To make an instant mocha use hot coffee instead of water or add instant coffee (1 tsp) when making a serving.

Do you have any favorite mixes that you make?
