Cozy coffee time & cottage charm giveaway

By Christy Amular - May 07, 2009

Make coffee time last longer with this cute coffee cup cozy tutorial from House on the Hill Road. I love my cozy in pink mushroom design.

My fave coffee concoction:

Cafe Swiss Mocha

1/4 cup powdered non-fat dairy creamer or non-fat dry milk
1/4 cup instant coffee
1/3 cup sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa

Shake in a jar to mix. Use 1 level tablespoon, to 6 ounces boiling water. Put 1 heaping teaspoon into 1 cup cold water; heat in microwave for 1 minute, 15 seconds; let sit in a moment. Stir and enjoy!

Want cupcakes with your coffee? Then hop over to Sadie Lou's Lollishop Blog for the Annual Cottage Charm Giveaway! Also visit the fun giveaway event hosted by Kim at Twice Remembered Cottage. Have fun!

  8. wait, are you saying that your coffee drink recipe is the same as that which you can buy in those little tins? swiss foods international coffees or some such?

    Because those make the BEST iced coffee drink. Take a couple scoops of the mix, put them in a glass of skim milk, add ice and shake like a martini to mix.


    If you can make those instead of buying... woo hoo.

  9. i love love LOVE the mushroom material of the coffee cozy!!!
