From Heloise (the helpful hints columnist)
1/2 cup instant-coffee granules
1/2 cup sugar (or equivalent substitute)
1 cup powdered skim milk
2 tbls. cocoa powder
Mix ingredients together and store in sealable container.
Notes: For cup of coffee using Heloise's recipes, put 2 rounded teaspoons of
the blend in a cup and add 8 ounces of boiling water. Stir well. For my
recipe, put 1 rounded teaspoon of blend and 1 teaspoon of instant coffee and
add boiling water. Or use blend then add boiling coffee. I made all 3
without including the instant-coffee as part of the mix. This way, it can
also be used with "brewed" coffee. I put the powdered skim milk through the
flour sifter to break up the granules which, when left intact, create a
yucky residue on the bottom of the cup. After it's sifted, I try to break up
any escaped milk granules by mashing them with a large plastic cooking spoon
or the bottom of a glass. While this helps, it's not 100% effective. But, I
keep trying! If anyone figures out a better technique, please pass it along.
