  • To make Mocha Joe, stir 2 tablespoons mix into a cup of coffee.
  • For a south-of-the-border version, add a dash of ground cinnamon after placing the mix in a mug.
  • To make your cocoa extra-special, stir in a bit of your favorite liqueur and/or top it with a drizzle of caramel sauce or chocolate syrup.
