Thrifty Christmas Idea #1-Mocha Cooler Mix

My friend, Jeni, made this for us one year, and a year later, I made it for everyone for Christmas. It is super easy and yummy!

Mocha Cooler Mix
1/4 cup instant coffee granules
1 cup sugar
1 cup nonfat dry milk powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup powdered nondairy creamer
1/3 cup baking cocoa

With a rolling pin, crush coffee granules into a fine powder. Place in an airtight container. Add sugar, milk powder, creamer, cocoa and salt; mix well. Store in a cool dry place for up to a year. Makes 3 1/2 cups--7 batches.

Additional ingredients:
1 1/2 cups crushed ice
1/2 cup milk

To prepare cooler: In a blender, combine the ice, milk and 1/2 cup of mocha mix. Cover and process on high until smooth. Pour into glasses. Yield: 2 servings per batch. For extra flavor, add flavored creamer while blending.

This is a fun gift to put in a cute Christmas mug!
