Fun Hot Cocoa Date Ideas

Sharing is caring!

Hot Cocoa Date Ideas was sponsored by Starbucks as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central. I received compensation and complimentary products to facilitate my review.

Last week we were snowed in and took advantage of the down time to indulge in a few mugs of  Starbucks® Hot Cocoa. We were lucky enough to be sampling Starbucks® Classic and Salted Caramel Hot Cocoa K Cup® pods. We put the Keurig to good use and came up with a few fun Hot Cocoa Date Ideas to keep us busy this winter.


Fun Hot Cocoa Date Ideas

Winter date ideas are a necessity when you live in PA. Winter has a way of showing up and not going away. This year we had snow in October and the temperatures have been brutal. We have lived in PA all of lives, so we have learned to make the best of it.

Go Play 

The first date I went on with my husband before we were married ended in a snowball fight. Winter has a way of bringing out the kid in you. Whether it’s a walk, skiing, sledding or just playing in the snow, enjoy each other’s company outside and appreciate nature and your significant other. When it’s time to come in, warm up with Starbucks® Salted Caramel Hot Cocoa. It’s a smooth cocoa, perfectly complemented by a pinch of sea salt and a dash of natural caramel flavor that will warm your belly.

Snuggle by the Fireplace 

Nothing says romance like snuggling in front of blazing fire. Grab those mugs of hot cocoa, wrap up in a cozy blanket and enjoy each other’s company.


Hot Cocoa Bar

Set up a variety of toppings and sweet treats to compliment your hot cocoa. Starbucks® Classic and Salted Caramel Hot Cocoa K Cup® pods are full of goodness. They are made with real cocoa and non-fat milk. Plus, they are ready with just a touch of the button on your Keurig® Brewer. Add a few donuts or cookies for the perfect dunk and enjoy!

Movie Time

Snuggle on the couch with your favorite movie while enjoying a mug of rich, chocolaty comfort.


Just Relax

Enjoy a slow and steady game of cards, put a puzzle together or even color. All while sipping on that warm and toasty Starbucks® Hot Cocoa.

Enjoying a tasty mug of  Starbucks® Hot Cocoa K-Cup Pods helped warm up our snowy day and we can’t wait to plan a few more Hot Cocoa Date Ideas. You can find Starbucks® Hot Cocoa K-Cup® pods at your local grocery store.

I’d love to hear from you. What’s your favorite way to enjoy hot cocoa?

    Hot chocolate is always good for cozying up! We like have it while watching a movie or tv.

    On a cold winter’s day when it’s snowing all I want to do is cuddle on the couch, watch the snow drinking hot cocoa. This post made me smile! I love hot cocoa! 🙂

    I’m always looking for ways to improve our marriage and I never thought of just card games or puzzles sometimes I think we over complicated things.
