Yummy! I made this today to give as a gift and I kept the extra jar for myself! I'll definitely make it again, and I'll keep some on hand for holiday entertaining. Thanks! (I ran the instant coffee through my whole-bean coffee grinder...worked great!)
Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm! I had this terrible chocolate-coffee craving tonight at 1am and I went crazy looking through my cookbook for a new recipe to try out. When I couldn't find anything and I'd almost given up, I came to Zaar's Home page and checked under main ingredient "chocolate". Lucky me! I found this awesome mix and immediately halved the recipe and made it. Since I did not have nutmeg on hand, I used a bit more of cinnamon. WOW! Mmmmmmm! Yumm!! It's fanta-fabulous! I'm sitting here right now, 1:20am, sipping this addicitve drink and I'm in heaven:) Thank you so much for sharing this delicious mix! I've just finished a mug and now I feel like fixing myself another:)
paula&mat, just wanted to tell you that I just mixed up my second batch of this recipe. This time, I substituted turbinado sugar (raw cane sugar) in place of the regular sugar. It is wonderful! That little hint of molasses really is delicious. By the way, I used my blender to process the instant coffee. Worked great. Thanks again, for this delicious recipe.
Very tasty. I held back on the cinnamon and nutmeg and added about 1/4 cup vanilla flavored creamer. Next batch I'll add some powdered milk, as I think the mix needed to be a bit more creamy for my family. This will be a great addition to our local "old folks home" bazzar in November. We are trying to raise money for new beds for them. Thanks... Mary Ann
Very nice recipe! I made as directed and added a small amount of powdered milk. If you decide to make this and don't already have instant coffee granules on hand, I highly recommend the Nescafe Classic. Others just don't compare.
Only when I came to review it I realised that I didn't even tried it.I'm not a big cappucino lover but it was delicious and something my relatives will surely enjoy.
I just made 10 jars for gifts for family and loved the recipe! I used French Vanilla creamer and loved the taste with the cinnamon and nutmeg. I also did not grind up the instant coffee - didn't affect the taste and it looks good in the jars. Great recipe!
Enjoyed this recipe and gave it as gifts this Christmas. I used 1/4C sugar as I like a less sweet cappuccino. Also used suggestions from others to use French Van. creamer. I think you could use more water when mixing, that way it would last longer!
OK - but would like to get it to taste creamier... Mary
This is a great recipe and can be used through the year - not just as a gift! I've made two batches of this recipe now, but after tasting the recipe as given I increased the non-dairy creamer to double the quantity and sugar to 3/4 cup. The second time round I made the recipe as is but added 1/2 cup of dry milk power as we like our coffee a lil creamier. Next time round I will try some vanilla powder instead of the cinnamon and nutmeg - just to get more variety! Really great coffee for those cold evenings at home and some good music!! Thank you Paula & Matt.
