The hustle and bustle of the holiday season is here, but we love to plan time to relax and spend the evening at home with family and friends. Today I’m sharing a warm and cozy drink with you, this Mocha Latte Recipe takes the pressure off hosting, all you have to do is mix up the ingredients and put them in your slow cooker. It will be ready and waiting when your guest arrive.
The first thing you do is brew a large pot of Folgers® BLACK SILK, use 3 cups for this recipe and reserve the rest for the regular coffee drinkers.
INGREDIENTS LIST (I have included a printable recipe card below)
- Folgers® Black Silk (3 Cups)
- Milk (4 Cups)
- Chocolate Syrup
- Hot Chocolate Mix
- Vanilla Flavoring
- Garnishes (optional)
Warm mocha latte for a crowd. Add 2 to 4 packages of hot chocolate mix, I usually do a taste test after 2.

For our annual gingerbread house contest, I will be serving these Mocha Latte coffees and milk. You can easily double the recipe for a large crowd, it would be great for Christmas morning too!
I prep the table with craft paper, it’s great for any icing or sprinkle mishaps!
It’s nice to bring everyone together, warm up with a cup of Folgers® and kick off the merriment with competitive gingerbread house building. After last year, we resolved to come up with better rules. We had a few people (at least one) that was grabbing miniature Christmas decor and adding it to his Christmas scene. (Here are a few photos from last year.)
Create a space on a table or buffet for serving and gingerbread house components. Make it easy on yourself and guest with this self serve area. You can bake your own houses or do like I did and grab a couple of kits. I hope you guys try this at home, it’s so much fun!
Whether you’re hosting a party or having a casual gathering, brewing coffee at home is a great way to start the holiday season. Folgers® has introduced me to 12 different roasts. A couple of months ago I was able to tour their facilities in New Orleans, it was a wonderful experience.
Here’s a list of the selection they have to choose from:
Classic Roast, a delicious medium roast made from rich, aromatic Mountain
Grown ® beans
Black Silk, a smooth, dark roast coffee
100% Colombian, a rich and full-bodied medium-dark roast coffee
Coffeehouse Blend, a rich, café style medium roast blend.
Morning Cafe, a light bodied and bright blend
Breakfast Blend, a smooth, mild roast
Country Roast Coffee, a robust, hearty coffee blend
100% Colombian Decaf, a rich and full-bodied decaffeinated coffee
½ Caff Coffee, all the great taste of regular Folgers but with half the caffeine
Special Roast Coffee, a well-crated, medium roast
Brazilian Blend Coffee, a smooth, flavorful medium roast coffee.
French Roast Coffee, a bold and hearty medium-dark roast blend
Gourmet Supreme, a deliciously dark roast with a rich, full-bodied character
Plenty of variety for all of us coffee lovers.
