Chocolate-Cherry Coffee Mix

Cute ice cream cone shaped packages of this flavored coffee mix are sure to delight friends and family. “I wanted something that both coffee and non-coffee drinks would enjoy, so I added cherry flavoring to a mocha mix,” explains Jennifer Waters of Lubbock, Texas. “The creamy dessert coffee is a perfect end to a meal.”

    This is such a great mix. I fixed it for our Christmas get-together. My sister and I almost drank all of it and no-one else got very much. I plan to make more when I have another party.

    I made this as a gift for family one year, only made the mistake of tating it myself and never gave any away.
