Fireside Coffee

Note: It is just a few days before Christmas. We have been spending a lot of time making gifts for our family and friends these last days. Painting, creating, laughing and just sitting around the table talking. One of the things that we will be making before going home to my parent's house is this fireside coffee. It is a Christmas favorite in my family.

Fireside Coffee

2 cups powdered creamer
1 1/2 cup cocoa mix
1 1/2 cup instant coffee
1 1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg

Mix above ingredients together in a large bowl. Put approximately 2 tablespoons mix in a mug of hot water. Make a cup for yourself and a cup for someone you love. Enjoy!

I wish I lived close enough to share a cup of this fireside coffee with my two sweet blogger friends, Lisa and Lana. They host Tempt My Tummy Tuesday each week. I love this wonderful recipe link-up each week. Great ladies and great food.

Normally I'm not a big coffee drinker. I have one cup in the AM.

But, this has really peeked my interest. I think I'm gonna have to try it.
