Holiday food as gifts

I'm looking for a recipe for instant cafe mocha in a jar that uses vanilla sugar, baking coca, instant milk and instant espresso.  The recipe was in House and Home, many years ago.  It was a hit.

Hello again jr57,

Is there any chance it was the Mochaccino Mousse Recipe from our November 2006 issue? It appeared in our Food & Style section as individual flutes of mousse, topped with sweet milk foam and Pocky sticks as garnish. The recipe calls for cream, coffee granules, egg whites, gelatin powder, etc. Does this sound familiar? That recipe was never put up on the website, since only select recipes from the magazine are put online, but if this sounds right, you can order a copy of the November 2006 issue from our circulation department. Please contact Fiona Wong at fwong@hhmedia.com to order individual back issues if they're not on our Back Issues page. I hope this is the recipe you're looking for!

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

The recipe still isn't coming up in my searches ... sorry, jr57. Any ideas about the year so that I can narrow down the search in our holiday issues?

Hello jr57,

I've searched our magazine database, and that recipe for instant cafe mochas isn't coming up. Our database goes back as far as 1987. If you can narrow down the year or season, that may help. Otherwise, here are a couple of recipes that may be similar:

Sorry I couldn't be more helpful ...

I think it was somewhere between 1998 & 2004.
