Instant Coffee with Hot Chocolate
Submitted by Eric Burns
Every morning, my wife and I each make a cup of "coffee" that is about 2/3's instant coffee (Nescafe) and 1/3 hot chocolate (the store brand stuff from Safeway). These are very cheap ingredients and are purely functional to get us going in the morning. Just heat up some water in a pot then mix with a few teaspoons of coffee and chocolate.
She got hooked on Nescafe while living in Hong Kong (where it's more popular than the US) for a few years, then she got me addicted. Every once in a while she swears it doesn't have the same kick and blames it on a "bad batch" of Nescafe. I don't believe in "bad batches."
We buy multiple giant jars of this stuff and store it on our shelves so that we are confident we'll never wake up one morning and be without it. This is not good for keep my teeth white and shiny.
