My dh liked this but had some trouble with the spices disolving. We added a little more sugar and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla (our own personal taste) and it was good. It will go in our cookbook and we will use again. thanks Toni
Sugar and spice, oh how nice! Super simple and it will bring the taste of Christmas any time of year. I did need to add a bit of regular Splenda as it needed a tiny bit more sweetening to really bring out the spices to their best advantage. I'm enjoying a cup as I type. I must add that the aroma is absolutely wonderful. I almost, but not quite doubled the cinnamon ...(oh, ok, I did double it)... and I didn't have any ground cloves so I added a few whole ones that will impart their flavor. Thank you toni for this lovely addition to my coffee cupboard.
I used a fresh bag of dark brown sugar to avoid sucralose/aspartame. The sugar was clumping with the drier ingredients so an airtight mini chopper came in handy. The recipe was followed exactly, and it wasn't sweet at all. Others suggested adding more sugar so it was doubled. It tasted much better. Very grainy though. I probably won't make it again.
My DH was told he needed more ginger in his diet and I looked at a lot of recipes that had ginger in it when I ran across this one. I am soooo glad I did as he is an avid coffee drinker and he usually puts creamer in his coffee. I have made this recipe twice this month already and if he had his way I would give this recipe a 10. Thanks so much for sharing it.
Very nice spiced coffee mix. I love gingerbread lattes and now I can have gingerbread coffee anytime without having to buy the expensive syrup. The Splenda brown sugar blend adds a bit of molasses flavor to the mix. Made for the Let's P-A-R-T-Y! December Cooking Event 2009.
What a tasty little treat! I made up a batch of this to give to my Mom. She loved it and so do I. It was so quick and easy to make and the aroma is wonderful.
Made fabulous holiday gifts and were enjoyed by all. Creamy and so different. I saved some for myself and really enjoyed the fantastic flavors. Cheaper than Star$s and oh so yummy! Thanks Toni!
This smells wonderful and makes a great cup of tea. I will be including this lovely mix in my Goody Baskets at Christmas. What a wonderful treat for our friends and family to enjoy. Thx justcallmetoni!
My kids had a sleep over tonight and we had the kids make this for there parents as a x-mas gift. We added more sugar also. Really easy really good. Thanks for sharing.
