Great recipe but instead of grinding it, put coffee in a resealable plastic bag, seal and roll with a rolling pin. Works great and nothing to clean! Add remaining ingredients to the bag, mix, cut a hole in one corner to neatly pour into container. I also double the amount of coffee listed to suit my taste.

I love this recipe. I make my own flavors also and use Splenda instead. You can't even tell the difference. I grind everything up in a mini processer to make it really fine like the real thing. I give this out at Christmas now and everyone loves it.
What a great recipe to personalize. I really like GFIC, but the price and the amount of sugar keep me from buying very often. Now I can make my own with decaf coffee and Splenda sweetener, plus create new flavors. A little cinnamon, rum extract, and butter flavoring (liquids from the candy making section- just mix well into granulated sugar) and I have my own winter Eggnog blend.
