Getting Cozy With New Starbucks Hot Cocoa K-Cups!

Getting Cozy With Starbucks Hot Cocoa K-Cups

Is there anything better in Winter than snuggling up on your couch with a comfy blanket and a mug of something warm and delicious?  I think not.  Lately, Mother Nature has been confused about which way she is going with the weather in New York.  One day it is Sunny and 55 degrees and another it is freezing and snowing.  For some reason, most of those cold snowy days are happening on the weekends.  I am not complaining though because that means I get to cuddle up with Taylor and our kitties.

 You may have seen last week on Insta that I was the lucky recipient of a Cozy Collection from Starbucks and I must say that it really took this weekend’s vegetation up a notch!  T and I have been binge-watching Survivor on Hulu and we are totally obsessed with it.  The addition of the Cozy Collection’s contents were the icing on the cake!

  • A special blanket, perfect for snuggling, cuddling or snoozing

Starbucks K-Cups Cozy Collection #HotCocoa #IC

This package came to me at precisely the right time since I recently bought a new Keurig Mini!  Before this I had been solely using an Espresso machine and I missed having a “regular” coffee maker so I could enjoy a cup of drip coffee when the mood struck me.  The Mini is so compact and cute that I figured it would be worth the loss of counter space.

I never anticipated also using it for hot cocoa at the time of it’s purchase but Starbucks changed that with their new K-Cups.  These things are total game-changers!  Now, I can pop in a pod and Taylor and I can enjoy decadent cocoa with the push of a button!

My Cozy Collection came with samples of both of their new flavors, Classic and Salted Caramel.  They are made with real cocoa and non-fat milk and they taste totally luxurious!  

To be honest, I have not had hot cocoa in years.  The thought of it brought back memories of instant powder that you mix in with hot water.  The powder would never fully dissolve so there would be weird lumps floating around your drink.  

Starbucks K-Cups are the exact opposite of that.  They produce cocoa that smooth, creamy and rich.  Plus, it is extremely easy to make.

Taylor and I loved them so much that we have already ordered more of the classic Hot Cocoa.  There are a few weeks of Winter left and we want to be prepared for more cozy weekends in.
