This time of year while everyone is running around crazy shopping and decking the halls, I love to stay in, stay warm and have a hot cup of cocoa. My shopping is done, my tree has been up for weeks now and some hot cocoa always puts me in the holiday spirit. What could be better than having a cup of cocoa to warm up on a cool fall or winter day? How about one that tastes like your favorite candy.
I know it didn’t rate high on the “favorite candies” list this Halloween, but I’ve always loved Tootsie Rolls. They’re not overly sweet, they’re not overly chocolately and just the right amount. So getting a box of Tootsie Roll Hot Cocoa to review was a delicious way to start this holiday season. I even had the added bonus of finding the hot cocoa setting on my k-cup brewer to test them out, so each cup came out perfect and the right temperature.
The Tootsie Roll Hot Cocoa k-cups work in all standard k-cup machines, and make up to a 16 oz tumbler to take on the go with you. Like other k-cups the Tootsie Roll ones work with just the water in your machine – don’t worry, you’ll still get a rich cup of cocoa at the end. Just pop it in the machine and hit “brew”. In a couple minutes you’ll have a rich and creamy cup of cocoa to warm you up from the inside.
Now, does the Tootsie Roll Hot Cocoa taste exactly like melted Tootsie Rolls? No, but there is a hint of the Tootsie Roll flavor in the cocoa. Just like the candy though, the hot cocoa isn’t overly sweet and is rich in flavor. There is just enough Tootsie Roll flavor for fans to love this cocoa and make you go back for another mug, or two. As a fan of hot cocoa and Tootsie Rolls, this is becoming a holiday favorite for me and everyone in the house.
