    Pat, I love doing mixes as gifts! You're right that they would be perfect for stocking stuffers!

    My roommate got me a wonderful *just cause* gift for me yesterday--Gingerbread coffeemate creamer to go in my gingerbread flavored coffee! YUM!

    I had some this morning for breakfast.

    I tried making a flavored mocha coffee mix this way by modifying a couple of a recipes from the Tightwad Gazette, but I think I got too much coffee in the mix, because it came out very bitter. (Of course, that could be because I was using the el-cheapo brand of instant coffee.) Next time I'll use slightly more sugar than coffee.

    I like to use mixes like this to make blended coffee drinks in the summertime--three tablespoons of coffee mix, a cup of water (or milk if you like it extra rich), and a few ice cubes whipped up in the blender. A much more frugal way to indulge my Frappucino cravings.
