Even though the cooler months are coming to an end, a nice mug of Hot Cocoa from our Keurig® brewer can be a warm welcome on a chilly morning or a ray of sunshine on a grey, uninviting day.
When our family comes home from a late afternoon walk and everyone’s hands and noses are a little cold, there isn’t a more comforting feeling than a warm drink in your hands. Typically, I love sipping on Swiss Miss® Cocoa K-Cup® and Dad likes to sit back with a strong cup of coffee, but on weekend afternoons, the whole family gravitates towards hot cocoa. And every weekend we end up in the same debate: which is the best K-Cup® hot cocoa?
We keep a variety of Café Escapes® K-Cup® packs on hand – Milk Chocolate, Dark Chocolate and even Café Mocha for when we need a little extra kick. Now that we’ve discovered the Swiss Miss® Cocoa K-Cup® pack, we keep those stocked up for when the nieces and nephews come over, too!
The kids love the Swiss Miss Hot Cocoa, which is rich and creamy, and Dad goes for the sophisticated flavor of the Cafe Escapes Dark Chocolate. I prefer the Milk Chocolate – classic, sweet, and really decadent!
No matter how long we discuss it, there’s really no way to settle this debate – each flavor has its own appeal. You just have to try them for yourself.
In our family, the best hot cocoa K-Cup® pack is topped with a healthy dollop of whipped cream. I sometimes add extra goodies, like marshmallows, sprinkles, a stick of cinnamon, or a little cocoa sprinkled lightly over everything. Yum!
