Christmas Edible Gift ~ Spicy Mocha Mix

Homemade gifts are a wonderful, thoughtful gift to give to family or friends at Christmas time. They are exclusively made for the person receiving the gift(s) and add that little extra treat of luxury you maybe unable to find in shop brought gifts.

Happy Cook @ My Kitchen Treasures is hosting an event for Homemade Christmas Gifts. She is posting a round-up here and you’ll be able to view all the homemade gifts that other bloggers have been busy making. You may find a gem of a homemade gift you may want to reproduce from some of the lovely homemade gifts already submitted!

Spicy Mocha Mix

Makes approximately 48 servings

1 cup granulated sugar
½ cup instant coffee granules
½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tsp ground nutmeg
1 tsp ground cinnamon


In a small bowl, add all the ingredients until completely mixed. Store in a tightly covered jar at room temperature for up to 6 months.

For each serving, place 2-3 teaspoons mix in a cup or mug and fill with 2/3 cup of boiling water, stir. Top with whipped cream and grated chocolate if wished. Provide the Spicy Mocha Mix on a gift card with the serving instructions.
