Get Cozy with Starbucks Hot Cocoa

This post was sponsored by Starbucks as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central.
I received compensation and complimentary products to facilitate my review.

Warming up with a mug full of your favorite decadent cocoa has never been easier. Made with real cocoa and non-fat milk, new Classic and Salted Caramel flavors let you indulge at the press of a button. Whether you dress them up with your favorite toppings or enjoy as is, each cup is a taste of rich, chocolaty comfort.

When I was teaching, I rarely drank coffee. I looked forward to my once a week cup of coffee on Sunday morning and that was it for me. Then I became a stay-at-home mom. I think coffee is running through my veins these days. Cold coffee that is. Cold coffee that’s been reheated five times in the microwave.

Luckily there is a drive-thru Starbucks® in the neighborhood where I can grab a cup of {hot} coffee while we are out and about. I realized how often we must be going there when my little guy points out Starbucks® cups and says “Coffee!” And I feel the same way when I see a green & white cup.

But going to Starbucks® everyday just isn’t going to happen. So I stock up on Starbucks® K-Cup® pods. We seriously love our Keurig. It’s perfect for two coffee lovers who don’t love each other’s coffees. My husband drinks bold coffee that I have to dump about half a cup of cream into so I can drink it. With a Keurig, it’s easy to brew each of our favorites!

Something I love to do in the winter after getting the little guy to bed, is to cozy up under a warm blanket and watch my favorite TV shows. I always reach for the hot cocoa because I can’t do the coffee-caffeine after dinner; I would be up all night! So hot cocoa it is!

And adding toppings is always a fun treat! After brewing the Salted Caramel, I added a whole lot of whipped cream and some drizzles of caramel and chocolate syrup.


Once I have my mug of deliciousness, I park myself on the couch for the night with a cozy blanket…which has usually been claimed by our cat. So after some pushing and pulling, we finally call a truce and snuggle up together on the couch for a night of TV watching.
