CocoChlo’s Christmas Coffees!

IMG_1982

As a coffee and hot chocolate lover, Christmas time is made even more special by some of the amazing limited edition flavours that the coffee shops create every year!

I have to admit I spend a fortune on coffee’s and hot chocolates this time of year and I would think that as much as 75% of my Christmas weight gain can be attributed to the ridiculous amounts of these drinks that I consume over the holiday season!

After sampling several different flavours over the years, here are my top nine (so far!)

7. Costa’s Chocolate Orange Hot Chocolate

This is an old photo – I learned the bad news at the beginning of November that Costa wouldn’t be bringing the Orange Hot Chocolate back this year!!! Shame on you Costa! They also stopped doing the Amaretti Latte this year! Double shame on you Costa!

5. Starbuck’s Fudge Hot Chocolate

Creamy milk hot chocolate with fudge flavouring! The usual style is served with a fudge flavour whipped cream and sprinkled with golden curls but I do prefer plain whipped cream with mine or I find the fudge flavour just a bit overwhelming! I’ve also had it with a waffle sprinkling which I think normally goes on the top of the Toffee Nut latte.

4. Costa’s Billionaire’s Latte

This one is new for 2017 and although I was disappointed that Costa had stopped making the Orange Hot Chocolate and Amaretti Latte, this one quickly became one of my favourites! Chocolate sauce followed by caramel sauce with a latte on top with whipped cream and a shortbread crumb sprinkled on top! Delicious! They only seem to make them in medium sizes though……

3. Costa’s Honeycomb Latte

A smooth and creamy latte with a dash of honeycomb syrup topped with freshly whipped cream and pieces of chocolate coated honeycomb.

2. Costa’s Toasted Marshmallow Hot Chocolate

They also don’t appear to have my favourite hot chocolate on the festive menu at Costa this year!!! Argh!! This one was hot Chocolate with a dash of toasted marshmallow syrup topped with freshly whipped cream and glittery mini marshmallows. Please bring it back Costa!!!
