Hot Chocolate Recipe

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

We have a great recipe for Hot Chocolate. Did you know you can get hot chocolate k-cups? Inspired by the creamy rich handcrafted Starbuck® hot chocolate, Starbucks® has Hot Cocoa K-Cup® pods. You can find them anywhere you buy groceries. It's so rich and creamy and you can make them right at home. Our recipe is simple, cozy and delicious perfect for a chilly evening snuggled up on the sofa without having to go out to have a chocolate mug full.

Cherry Hot Chocolate Recipe
makes 1 serving
  • 1 Starbucks® Classic Hot Cocoa K-Cup® pod
  • maraschino cherries
  • 2 tablespoons of maraschino cherry juice
  • marshmallows
  • chocolate syrup for garnish
Brew one Starbucks® Classic Hot Cocoa K-Cup® pod (per directions on your machine), add maraschino cherry juice, mix. Top with marshmallows. a swirl of chocolate syrup and of course a cherry on top! It's so fun to create your own favorite version. This Cherry Hot Chocolate is one of my favorite flavor combinations. It reminds me of my favorite cherry chocolates I get at Christmastime.

It's such a cozy treat. Starbucks hot cocoa k-cups are made with real cocoa and non-fat milk. They come in two flavors classic hot cocoa and salted caramel hot cocoa YUM! They are super easy to make with one touch.
My new favorite ritual is to make some hot chocolate and cozy up on the sofa with a warm blanket and a rich and creamy chocolatey Starbucks hot cocoa.
