This recipe has been passed through the family for decades. It’s a favorite holiday beverage as well as great for gift giving! I made a mistake when copying the recipe, which actually made it so much better, and now it’s my own original.


1/2 Cup instant coffee
1/2 Cup granulated sugar
1 Cup powdered creamer (I like flavors such as vanilla or hazelnut)
2 TBSP Cocoa powder
2 TBSP instant hot cocoa mix

Mix all ingredients together. Use 2 rounded teaspoons (or more!) per 8 oz. hot water. If desired, top with whipped cream, shaved chocolate, and sprinkles. Serve with a candy cane.
