Calling all chocolate lovers! Starbucks just released 3 new Valentine's Day drinks

What says "love" better than chocolate? This Valentine’s Day, Starbucks is calling all you chocolate lovers to try their three new drinks. Beginning today, February 8, participating Starbucks will be offering Molten Chocolate mugs. You better hurry, though, because these delicious beverages are only offered until this Sunday, February 14.

The first V-Day creation is called the Molten Chocolate Latte. This drink has “chocolaty” chips that are melted into espresso, then topped with steamed milk and an espresso-infused whipped cream. The best part? They add more chocolate by topping it off with an espresso-mocha drizzle. This is basically the best of both worlds—coffee and chocolate.

Next they have the Molten Chocolate Frappuccino. Like other Starbucks blended drinks, this one has milk and ice combined with coffee, chocolate chips and a mocha sauce. If you’re feeling extra sweet, you can get whipped cream and a little extra drizzle.

For those of you who aren’t the biggest coffee lovers, Starbucks is also offering the Molten Hot Chocolate, aka the ultimate chocolate lover’s dream. The chocolate chips and bittersweet mocha sauce are melted into the milk for a creamy and smooth taste. Finally, a mocha and espresso-infused whipped cream is topped with an espresso-mocha drizzle.


Yum! It sounds like Starbucks wants us to ditch that boring box of chocolates—and we can't say they don't have a convincing argument.

What do you think of these new drinks? Do you have any other cool chocolate inspired drink recipes? Let us know in the comments!
