I hate to admit it but most days I am a two cup girl. Two cups of coffee kind of a drinker. I'll have my morning cup and half a serving for my 3pm pick me up, though it's more like a 3pm sit me down.
Most mornings are full of activity so by the time the late afternoon hits, I'm ready for my 10 minute break. Stay at home mom's need a little time out too some days..... most days. This is the perfect time for me to enjoy my cup of coffee and sit down. Kiddos will be down for a nap or having quiet time and I'll sit for a few minutes with a good book to read and a little treat.
Just the right combination of caffeine and mental break to get me revved up to finish the day. Now this isn't just a regular cup because it doubles as a little sweet treat. My super simple homemade mocha. I start with warming a cup of milk in the microwave.
Then I add the hot coco mix. Then a teaspoon of Folgers instant coffee. It's best when topped with a whip cream!
In the summers I do the same thing and pour it over ice to make the perfect Instant Coffee super simple homemade mocha. Yum yum!
It's the perfect 3pm sit me down treat because it's easy, sweet, and just enough caffeine to give me a boost for the end of the day. You can find other really yummy coffee treats at Folgers Recipes.
