One of my great friends made a mug of this for me one winters day. She told me how her family always takes it along on camping trips. I just couldn't leave without the recipe. I have enjoyed making it for my family and now this year I am filling liquid creamer bottles with it, decorating them as snowmen, and passing them out for teacher gifts. I'm happy to share it with the JAP community as well.

  • 2 c
    instant cocoa (ovaltine or ghirardelli cocoa with chocolate are my favoites)
  • 2 c
    instant non dairy creamer, plain (coffeemate not the cheap stuff because you want creamy not just "white")
  • 1 c
    instant coffee or espresso powder
  • 1 1/2 c
    granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp
    ground nutmeg
  • 1 tsp
    ground cinnamon

How to Make Fireside Coffee Mix


  1. Mix all the ingredients thoroughly and store in a well sealed container
  2. To make a cup, stir 3 heaping teaspoons into a cup of water.

    To be quite honest, I use more of the mix per cup than this because I fill my mug up and/or use a cappuccino size mug.
  3. This is great on road trips, camping trips, to give as gifts in pretty containers, or just to keep on hand at home all winter long.
