I think it's always nice to get or give a Starbucks card for a coffee treat from time to time, but even $5 gift cards can add up for friends and neighbors and teachers.
- 1 cup (4 cups) unsweetened cocoa
- 2 cups (8 cups) sugar
- 2 cups (8 cups) nonfat dry milk powder (I've also used lactose free powder)
- 2 cups (8 cups) dry nondairy coffee creamer (you can also use a flavor like vanilla or hazelnut!)
- 1/2 cup (2 cups) instant coffee (regular or decaf--up to you!)
- 1 (4) vanilla bean, cut up (I sometimes leave this out--it's expensive!)
