What’s better than Starbucks? Starbucks from your own home! 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.
If you know me or you’ve been reading this blog for awhile, you know that I make Starbucks runs a few times a week. My husband and I joke that I am single-handedly keeping the two nearest locations in business (You’re welcome, Starbucks!) And although some may see it as a problem, I like to think of it as supporting my favorite establishment. I mean, nothing even comes close to a Starbucks beverage and on tough days, nothing feels better than indulging in your favorite drink.
And while I love my lattes and iced coffee, sometimes I just want an old fashioned hot chocolate. We’ve been putting fires in our fireplace recently and nothing goes better with a fire than a delicious cup of hot chocolate. Starbucks® K-Cups are easy to throw in the Keurig® brewer, sit back and watch the magic happen. Made with real cocoa and non-fat milk, you can enjoy chocolatey goodness at the touch of a button! Do you prefer Classic Hot Cocoa or Salted Caramel Hot Cocoa? I’m a traditional kind of girl when it comes to hot chocolate but my husband loved the Salted Caramel. The Salted Caramel has a pinch of sea salt and natural caramel flavor and the Classic is, well, classic. They’re great alone but you can dress them up with whipped cream, marshmallows, sauce… whatever floats your boat!
We don’t get out often (thanks kids), so we often have to plan intentional date nights at home. Whether it’s just watching a movie or planning a special dinner, it’s important for us to spend time together when the kids go to sleep. And sneak desserts of course! Cookies, chocolate covered strawberries, brownies, pound cake…I could go on forever. All of them are the perfect compliment to a nice cup of hot cocoa right in the comfort of your own home 🙂
