I ♥️ Starbucks hot chocolate and an occasional Caffé Mocha. When I saw the Starbucks Hot Cocoa mix at Costco today I had to try it out to see if it was as rich and dark chocolatey as when I order my grande at the drive-thru. ☕️ After tasting the hot cocoa I ended up making myself a caffé mocha from it. It really tastes just like the Starbucks drink you'd order.
First I made 8 oz of hot cocoa using around 7 oz whole milk plus 2 heaping tablespoons of the cocoa mix. I mix it in my @breville Milk Café frother so it mixes, warms, and froths it up at the same time. (You can also just warm milk in a mug and whisk in the cocoa mix.) While that was mixing, I brewed 4oz espresso strength coffee using @cafebustelo in my @ninjacoffeebar machine on the "specialty" setting. Then, I just poured the frothy hot cocoa over the espresso and enjoyed my Starbucks copycat mocha for under $1. 😋
