dry milk powder

Fantastic!! If you like coffee shop mochas, you HAVE to try this (and I used to work at Starbucks!) I made a single serving to test it out before making as gifts. I used store-brand skimmed milk powder. Nescafe espresso powder, and light brown sugar. It foamed up beautifully and there was no 'grime' at the bottom of the cup. I agree with a previous poster that it needed a touch more sugar. I added a single serving pouch of sugar (1 tsp) to my cup and that was perfect. I will add some extra sugar to the mix when I give it as gifts.
I was happy to find this recipe, as it did not include the non-dairy creamer. However, the taste was lacking. As others found, I too thought it was not sweet enough... easy to fix, add more sugar… though that didn't seem to fix it. So, I did as others had suggested and put the mix into the blender/food processor. The taste didn’t get any better and it still did not dissolve completely when mixed. There was a greasy layer on the top and it had a bitter aftertaste… I think it was the semi-sweet chocolate chips. Anyway, I’m sorry but this just didn’t taste good to me. :(
I loved this mix! The rest of my family did, too. I did not have mini chocolate chips, so I used M&Ms instead. It was great.
Another great recipe from Allrecipes! I ended up using 6 Tb instant coffee and 7 Tb brown sugar (had to adjust because coffee was strong). Put the choc chips thru food processor so they would be evenly distributed, although the whole chips looked pretty in the mix. Used Tasters Choice Vanilla Roast (decaf) and it was dee-licious! Tied small whisks onto jars with ribbons and gave as Christmas gifts. Everyone loved it! (whisking works, as well).
the semisweet choc chips is a brilliant idea. my husband love this very much! thanks amy!
This was very good. It just needed a touch more of sugar. My co workers enjoyed it.
great for holiday gifts!
This is very easy and uses ingredients I always have on hand...After tasting I decided to add a little more instant coffee and mix all in the blender until powdery...When I was ready for a cup I put 1c boiling water to 3 heaping teaspoons of mix and blended until frothy!!!Love this recipe!!!Thx Amy Beth!!!
