Starbucks is about to knock your socks off with their new flavors of Starbucks K-Cup pods, and I’m going to show you how to turn these new flavors into a Starbucks Hazelnut Hot Cocoa Recipe!
Self-Proclaimed Starbucks Nut Right Here
If there are any other self-proclaimed Starbucks nuts out there, raise your hand. I am the leader of the self-proclaimed Starbucks nuts. You can find me at Starbucks multiple times a week. I love meeting up with friends there, having a mini-date with my husband there, or just escaping for a cup of coffee by myself (and get a little bit of work done in the process).
Having kids means that I don’t always get the opportunity to head out to Starbucks though. There have been several, and I mean several, days where I just wanted a cup of their delicious coffee in my hands to sip and savor.
Get ready because the news I’m about to share with you is going to blow your Starbucks-loving mind.
The Skinny on New Starbucks Hot Cocoa K-Cup Pods
Starbucks® Hot Cocoa K-Cup® pods are now available for purchase to enjoy in your own home. So many nights I’ve dreamed of this, and now it’s finally a dream come true.
If you already love your K-Cups, this little pod will revolutionize your life. I love the fact that there are two decadent flavors — they ensure that the time you have to treat yourself well is simply perfect. So rich and creamy and definitely something you need to try out for yourself.
There are two new scrumptious K-Cup flavors from Starbucks:
Starbucks® Classic Hot Cocoa
An indulgent favorite inspired by Starbucks handcrafted hot cocoa. Created especially for your Keurig brewer, each cup is made with real cocoa and non-fat milk for rich, creamy, chocolaty taste, time after time.
Starbucks® Salted Caramel Hot Cocoa
Discover velvety cocoa, perfectly complemented by a pinch of sea salt and a dash of natural caramel flavor with the new Salted Caramel Hot Cocoa K-Cup pods. Each cup is made with real cocoa and non-fat milk for a sweet chocolate sensation and a savory flair.
Starbucks Hot Cocoa K-Cup pods can be found anywhere you buy groceries!
