Bavarian Mint Coffee
1/3 cup powdered coffee creamer
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup instant freeze-dried coffee
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
4 hard peppermint candies, crushed
In a small bowl, mix all ingredients. Store in airtight container.
To use, stir mixture before measuring.
For each serving, place 3 tablespoons mix in cup and add 6 oz. boiling water. Stir well.
To make as gifts, I usually triple the recipe and usually end up making more than one batch. I put enough for 3 or 4 servings in decorative Christmas bags with tags or labels denoting the serving suggestion. I also usually use decaffeinated coffee, and have found that people appreciate that.
