I received this one year as a gift from one of my kids that rides my bus. Being a school bus driver I receive some of the most unique gift items. This was done up in a cute jar w/instructions tied at the top w/a bow. I just had to have the recipe after trying it out for myself. The problem I've discovered lately is that i"m unable to find Amararetto Coffee-mate. Serving size is ???
- Mix thoroughly.
- Store in an airtight container.
- For a single serving, mix 3-4 heaping t. in 6-8 oz. of hot water.
So rich and creamy! I used vanilla flavored coffeemate because I couldn't find amaretto, and added a bit of almond extract to each serving and a Mexican powdered chocolate that is a little grainier and more robust and it was perfect. Also, I scaled it down to 3. I'll make more soon :) Thank you Susan!
I too scaled this down for three. It was amazing! Since I couldn't find the dry powdered amaretto coffeemate creamer, I substituted it with French Vanilla flavored dry coffeemate, and when I prepared the drink I added 1 tablespoon of "liquid" Coffeemate Amaretto creamer and it worked out fine. I also after tasting it added a tablespoon of Amaretto liquor to each mug too, which gave it an extra punch of almond flavor. Delightful either way! Made for the Comfort Cafe Winter 2010.
I scaled this down to half and it still made quite a lot, I found that 4 tablespoons was the perfect amount for my hot chocolate and I also had to add in some sugar, this really brings a cup of hot chocolate to another level, thanks for posting this great mix Sue, this was made for KK's forum Chef's Pick game
