Cocoa Minted Coffee Mix

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Lorraine of AZ

This is a copycat recipe of a specialty coffee mix of one of the Junior Leagues in Texas. I used to be gifted with a jar every Christmas, and it would run out all too soon. But now I can have it anytime I want. Jars of this mix make great gifts, and not just at Christmastime! By the way, try it with almond extract, instead of the peppermint, sometime.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 12 cups non-dairy powdered coffee creamer
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 12 cup instant coffee granules
  • 12 cup unsweetened baking cocoa
  • 1 dash salt
  • 12 teaspoon peppermint extract


  1. Combine ingredients. I like to use my processor for this, drizzling in the peppermint extract over all the other ingredients while the motor is running.
  2. However, ingredients can be mixed together by hand.
  3. Store in an airtight container.
  4. Directions for use: Use 2 to 3 tablespoons per mug of boiling water.
