Toffee Coffee Mix
- 1/2 cup instant coffee
- 1 cup instant non-fat dry milk powder
- 1/2 cup powdered coffee creamer
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon dry fat-free butter flakes, like Butter Buds (optional, but good)
- Pinch salt
- 1/4 cup store-bought butterscotch flavored instant pudding mix (optional, but good)
Measure all of the ingredients into a clean, dry bowl. Use a fork to combine everything evenly. If you are ambitious, you can powder everything in a blender. I don’t always do this because I am lazy. You do get really impressive results from it though, and it is easier to do than one would expect. Transfer the mixture to a resealable container, or a pretty jar. Makes 2 1/2 cups.
This recipe has a creamy, caramel, toffee flavor. It reminds me of hot chocolate, only with a toffee flavor instead of a chocolaty flavor. Did that make sense? It’s smooth, creamy fullness is similar to hot chocolate, only with a caramel note instead of a chocolate blast. Hmmm, not much better. Okay, I’ll try again later, maybe all of the brain cells will be working then.
To Prepare: Combine 3/4 cup of boiling water and 3 tablespoons of the dry mix in a coffee cup.
