Hot cocoa is one of the best winter drinks, especially when it’s enjoyed while curled up under a blanket. To make the experience even better, you have to check out the hot cocoa snowmen at Trader Joe’s. Each one actually melts into a cup of rich, sweet hot chocolate.
We have to say, making hot cocoa like this may be just as fun as drinking it!
How Does This Hot Cocoa Snowman Work?
It’s easy. You simply place the chocolaty snowman in a mug of warm milk, watch him melt, stir and enjoy. According to the Trader Joe’s blog: “He’ll bob and tip, like he’s enjoying a cozy bath… until he starts to melt.”
Then, as the body of the white chocolate snowman melts, a plethora of mini marshmallows and milk chocolate drops will pop out to add even more creamy flavor to your mug. Just stir and your cocoa is ready to sip.
Instagram users are loving the melting snowmen right now. Trader Joe’s superfan @iluvtraderjoes regrets not buying more of them:
P.S. Trader Joe’s also sells chocolate ornaments to hang on your tree…or eat right away. Both things will make adorable stocking stuffers for chocolate lovers.
Is This a Limited Edition Treat?
Of course! You can only find these drinkable treasures through the holiday season, so be sure to snag one (or a whole bunch) at your Trader Joe’s. Each hot cocoa snowman is only $1.99, so we expect them to go fast.
If TJ’s is sold out, Plan B is instant hot cocoa. See how the most popular brands ranked in our taste test.
