I’ve had a Starbucks Gold card for years – and while I’m used to the app now, I’m excited to change my daily ritual a bit so that I can get my favorite drinks at home now.
The Starbucks Hot Cocoa K-Cup pods are now available wherever you buy groceries! I’m seriously stoked about this because now I can enjoy a relaxing cup of cocoa in the evening from the comfort of my own home. Whether I want the classic hot cocoa or the Starbucks salted caramel hot cocoa, I’m able to indulge without even needing to be “drive thru” dressed up, much less work place presentable. While I’m a hip mama, at 10 pm when a deadline is looming, it is nice to have the convenience of my favorite rich, chocolatey drinks ready for me in just moments. And I know other moms also know that cocoa is something the entire family enjoys.
A warm mug of Starbucks® Classic Hot Cocoa offers a rich and creamy taste, direct from your Keurig brewer, and is made with actual REAL cocoa, and non fat milk, which allows you to indulge. If you want that same velvety taste, but like salted caramel, then you’re in luck with the Starbucks® Salted Caramel Hot Cocoa, which is again made with real cocoa and non-fat milk. The savory taste comes from the natural caramel flavor and a pinch of seat salt.
Whether you decide to sprinkle some cinnamon on top, or maybe create your favorite libation, the only important thing here is that you make sure you differentiate your cup so that your kiddos get their serving and not yours! My favorite, however, is to use marshmallows (and let them melt just a bit!) and sprinkle a dash of cinnamon on top! Yep, now you know what I have on a cold evening when I want to relax! For friends, I tend to include a few extras like peppermint sticks and even real whipped cream. My kids love hot cocoa, even in the summer. When that time comes, we add in a scoop of real vanilla ice cream and it is a great back yard drink for star gazing.
