Fall Spice Cappuccino Recipe

Watching the wind blowing through the trees outside, a few orange and brown leaves falling to the ground.  Afghan spread out on my lap, fuzzy socks on my feet.  Reading a good book.  My hand wrapped around a warm coffee mug, the taste of cinnamon and nutmeg lingering in my mouth {yummmm}.

love me some cappuccino (or latte, or whatever... anyone really understand the difference?) when it's cool outside.  It's comforting and soothing to me.  When I was in 9th or 10th grade, my mom found an amazing recipe for an instant cappuccino mix.  We've made it every fall and winter since then (I'm talking, 13 years later and I still love it).

1 cup Powdered Coffee Creamer
2/3 cup Instant Coffee
 1/2 cup Sugar
1 cup Instant Hot Cocoa Mix
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1/4 tsp Nutmeg

Mix the ingredients together.  Store in an airtight container.

To serve: 
Add 2 tablespoons cappuccino mix to every 6 ounces of hot water.  Enjoy!

I considered experimenting with adding pumpkin spice (since pumpkin drinks are "in"), but I decided I loved this mix just the way it was.  Do you have a special go-to coffee recipe to ward off the chill?  I'd love to know!
