3 Uses for Instant Coffee (Besides Coffee)

on August 16, 2012

So maybe you got this box of instant coffee “singles” for work, or you bought some instant coffee for camping, but you never used all of it, and now you’re stuck with it. What do you do? I mean, coffee is coffee, right? What do you do with it, if not drink it?

What Else Can You Do With Instant Coffee?

Well, friends, here’s a list (albeit short) of new uses for that instant coffee, so it doesn’t just sit in your pantry or file drawer at work anymore:

1.) Make “Antique Paper” – Add some coffee to water in a pan, crinkle some printer paper, and lay it in the water for a few minutes, then gently pull it out and let it dry. Bam! It looks antique. Useful for crafts!
2.) Pour it on Ice Cream! – Sprinkle some onto your ice cream for a new kind of topping! It’s pretty yummy.
3.) Bake with it – I used it in this recipe for Layered Mocha Cheesecake for my husband’s birthday, and it turned out GREAT!

Do you have anymore ideas or ways you use instant coffee? Share with me in the comments!
