One of the things I look forward to the most during the winter season is a good cup of hot chocolate. Kirkley is just getting to the age where she can enjoy it, and for some reason it is one of the most comforting things on a cold winters day. To add onto the simple pleasure, getting one straight from Starbucks® makes it all that much better. Fun fact….way back yonder (oh lets just say when I was in college, so last year right? cough cough) I used to work at Starbucks®. It was SO much fun and really revved my addiction to it’s drinks. The hot chocolate there is one of the richest and creamiest hot chocolate drinks around.
Thankfully, Starbucks has made having a Starbucks® Hot Cocoa right in the comfort of your own home or office, as easy as pushing a button. I can now enjoy the Classic Hot Cocoa and Salted Caramel (I KNOW, RIGHT?!?!) flavors any time I want to. Sadly, the nearest Starbucks® location is 30 minutes away from me. The travesty. One thing I do know is our local grocers (and yours) carry these fantastic little K-Cup pods for my Keurig machines at home and the office. Hello convenience!
The Starbucks® Hot Cocoa K-Cup pods are made with real cocoa and non-fat milk for a rich and creamy taste. You all know me, and I am a HUGE Salted Caramel fan, so I dressed it up a little with whipped cream, caramel drizzle and some sea salt on top. SO. GOOD. If you’re more into the classic Hot Cocoa flavor, you can’t go wrong there either. It’s so rich, decadent and chocolaty every time. They’re so easy to personalize for your own special taste, right from the comfort of your own home. Treat yourself to a delicious cup right away.
