A great holiday blend of coffee is a requirement for this gift idea!  Just in time for the holidays, New England Coffee is offering three delicious seasonal flavors – Eggnog, Gingerbread Cookie and Mocha Mint. All are available in 11-oz. bags of ground coffee. They are perfect to grab at your local grocery store or at the New England Coffee Shop and keep on hand for gifts or serving to guests…or BOTH!

I made this Chocolate Mug Cake Mix before for myself, but it makes a super gift for the Extraordinary people in your life too! Make a full batch and then fill smaller pint size jars with it. You can do several with one batch of mix.

Include one of these cute holiday gift tags and write the directions to mix the cake on the back.

  • 3 TBSP Mix
  • 2 TBSP Coffee (or water)
  • Microwave 1 minute.

Since this is a chocolate cake mixing it with coffee instead of water is simply just a little bit of heaven! Drizzle it with a little glaze and some crushed peppermint and you really have a yummy treat!

You can’t enjoy your mug cake without a mug of New England Coffee to go with it. Double mugging it is the way to go!

I really felt like New England Coffee was perfect for this.

    This year I had to take personal time off for Christmas Eve. My job is a 24 hour working place. Lucky me I work the morning shift. So I am very thankful to have been able to take the 23-24th off to celebrate Christmas a little early with both sides of our family. Mine and my hubbys. Sometimes we have to celebrate holidays sooner because of the type of job I have but it all works out just fine. And I’m happy just with that.

Our December is basically planned around food and family, lol.

  30. My children and I became homeless this past September. We lost everything we own due to unethical business practices (not our own) beyond our control.
