A nice hot drink on either a cold day or a dreary day always seems like a hugh for my spirit. And I'm not alone with this feeling. It seems as though my kids drink a lot more cocoa, chai, or cappuccino on those types of days. My daughter especially enjoys a good cup of caramel flavored cappuccino. Well, mom's love hugging their kids and seeing smiles on their faces so that means going to the kitchen to see if I can create a caramel cappuccino mix. Here's what I put together!
Instant Caramel Cappuccino Mix
Jars/Zip Lock Bags for Storage
1 cup instant coffee
3 cups powdered dry milk (I prefer Sanalac brand but any will work)
1 1/2 cup powdered caramel coffee creamer
1 cup sugar
2 small boxes of instant butterscotch pudding
Combine all ingredients in a food processor fitted with the large blade. Blend until smooth and completely mixed.* Divide and store in air tight containers: canning jars, zip lock bags, etc.
How to Enjoy:
Place 3 or 4 heaping Tbsp of dry mix into your 8 oz mug. Add hot water, stir, and enjoy!
*I find that blending all of these mixes in a food processor helps to not only thoroughly mix all the ingredients but by making the mix more powdery aids in how well it all dissolves/mixes with the hot water and also keeps the ingredients from "settling".
