Flavored Mocha Drink Mix Recipe

Flavored Mocha Drink Mix Recipe

I rely on vanilla and almond extracts to get two great flavors from one hot beverage mix. At Christmastime, you can package these fun mixes in pretty jars, decorative tins or holiday mugs to make great-tasting gifts. —Edna Hoffman, Hebron, Indiana
