WFMW - Double Shot Mocha at Home

So... I'm the kind of girl who stumbles with eyes half open to the coffee pot in the morning. I like a lot of caffeine as quickly as possible. Especially when there are usually four family members demanding my attention as soon as my feet hit the floor. Who am I kidding? They're demanding it way before my feet actually hit the floor.

I digress.

I could make my coffee stronger, but I like to enjoy the coffee and who wants to drink a cup of mud first thing in the morning? Coffee makes me turn into a person. Before that I'm just a muttering shell. Aside from guzzling to get to a 2nd cup in order to ingest enough caffeine in time to handle all the hub bub, I figured my best bet was to slam a Mountain Dew in one hand and my coffee in the other.

Until I discovered this at Publix a few months ago.

There it is in all its yummy chocolate caffeinated glory... Swiss Miss Pick-Me-Up.

I simply brew my normal cup of coffee, skip the creamer and the sugar (or agave nectar), and I drop a packet of this in. It's 110 calories and dare-I-say makes a double shot mocha that can rival whatever Starbucks can dish out.

That's what works for me! For more WFMW tips, check out Rocks In My Dryer!

Man does that sound good! I love the idea, but I would have to try it. I'm usually not a huge fan of chocolate coffee. (I'm more of a mud kind of girl myself. I order 2 double-shot espressos in one cup!) But I bet I would like this. Thanks for the suggestion.

Nice. Sigh, we don't even have decent hot chocolate is this place. Everytime someone comes from the US, we beg for a family size can of Swiss Miss. When I am stateside will look for this. Great idea!

You can also mix the packet with 1 tsp of instant coffee and water if you are in a huge hurry!

I'm so getting some of that. Plus, it has added calcium. So, I'm thinking that it kind of counts as a vitamin supplement as well! ;-)
