Throughout my life I have lived all over the US in many different climates but I’ve ended up in Northern California which has an almost neutral temperature. We get hot and cold spells but never overly hot or bone chilling cold, it’s just right in my eyes.
Leave it to me and my kids to always be cold in our 45 degree winters though. I’ve lived in the frigid Fargo, ND winters but I’ve now adjusted to the California mild winters and never seem to stay warm in the winter months. We love to stay cozy in our home on those colder evenings with the fireplace and blankets with mugs of hot cocoa and a movie with popcorn. Heating up the milk and adding the chocolate is a nice perk to having extra time, but I’ve been dreaming of a hot cocoa k-cup that tastes good and not watered down.
When I heard that Starbucks was introducing K-Cups with their delicious creamy Hot Cocoa in not just the original flavor but my guilty pleasure Salted Caramel as well I jumped at the chance to test them out!
My sons were so excited to have their own pods for the Keurig machine that they can use and drink, so we got right to brewing some rich creamy hot cocoa! Check them out in action below:
I was so pleased with the quality that matches the Starbucks K-Cups that are already on the market. Rich, delicious flavor and not at all watered down like other cocoa k-cup pods I’ve tried in the past! They use real cocoa and nonfat milk in each pod, making it so very close to what you get in Starbucks-but you don’t have to leave home to get it! You can have delicious Starbucks Hot Cocoa at the touch of a button!We’ve been extra cozy making Hot Cocoa with our Cozy Collection kit, adding shortbread and giant marshmallows to our cocoa and cozying up under our plush new blanket!
