Fireside Mocha

My sis-in-law sent me some of this for Christmas. I thought it would be a great recipe to share.

  • 2 Cups CoffeeMate or any powdered creamer

  • 2 Cups Hot Cocoa mix

  • 1 Cup Instant Coffee

  • 1 Cup Sugar

  • 1 tsp. Cinnamon

Put it all in a big bowl, stir it up, and put into containers of your choice. {I got my container at a thrift store. But a simple cellophane bag tied with ribbon would be sweet too!}You can also use flavored creamers if you want. Or powdered peppermint in place of the cinnamon.

To make my felt-n-button medallion just stack pieces of felt atop one another & stitch together by adding a button. Punch small holes in 2 opposite corners, thread twine through & tie around container.

I made myself a cup yesterday while hanging out with my bestest bud Tia. Even though we're now 1200 miles apart, we're continuing our Tuesday Tia/Nikki dates via Skype. I'm so excited! Anyway, we were searching the 'net & found THIS awesome site with lots more dry beverage mix recipes.
Have fun!


  1. Hey, that's funny that you mentioned hanging with Tia on Skype--I blogged about doing that very thing (only crafting together)! GMTA!

  2. It looks so pretty! I think I will try this next year. And your container and tag are lovely too! Thanks for sharing!

    I'll try this one when the chill arrives

  4. I bet this cocoa hits the spot! Such a cute jar and tag! I've heard of Skype but haven't tried it yet.

  5. Yum! I am definitely going to try this!

  6. Always with the creative! Very cute. The recipe sounds yummy too!

  7. it sounds absolutely yummy and I love you decoration with it

  8. That drink sounds toasty warm to me. I will have to try it one day. I bet it smells delish. :-)

  9. I made homemade hot cocoa for folks for Christmas this year, too! Great minds, right? :P

    Mine had a packet of jello chocolate pudding mix in it and powdered milk. No coffee or cinnamon. The rest was pretty much the same. Yum.

  10. I make this for our Christmas Party guests. :) I usually include a couple of crunchy cookies (for dipping) and a candy cane. And I usually use the mason/canning jars- but decorate the lid. Yummy!

  11. I love to come and browse your site, since you consistently keep the gears in my little brain moving!

    So- I'm giving you an award on my blogsite!

    Check it out, buttercup!

  12. i recently found your's simply delightful. a friend made this for me this Christmas I drank it seven straight days in a row. i asked if she put "crack" in it and now I think i know why i put three tablespoons per cup! um pass the sugar!

  13. I wish you sold the Cute tags for the Coffee instructions....that would be so timesaving for me :) Love the Look! Thanks for sharing! Kim
