Pick Me Up Mocha Coffee Mix

Barbara Kavorkian


This is a wonderful blend to have on hand. I found plenty recipes for Mocha drinks, but some were to sugary, some too much chocolate (too much? I know) and some were good, but really needed a little spice in them. These spices really give that warm feeling too it.

How to Make Pick Me Up Mocha Coffee Mix
