There’s nothing like a fresh cup of hot cocoa for a sweet treat or to break the grip of a cold winter morning. However, while many traditional hot chocolate recipes call for steamed or warmed milk, Keurig beverages must be made with water.
Once you’ve added filtered water to your Keurig, you can choose from a wide variety of delicious chocolate options to fix a cup of this delicious treat.
Best Hot Chocolate K-Cups
Swiss Miss Hot Chocolate
The Swiss Miss Milk Chocolate Hot Cocoa Keurig Single-Serve K-Cup Pods are the hot chocolate you remember, so get out the marshmallows you enjoy.
This is a real dairy product.
You’ll want to shake each pod before using it and take care when extracting the pod; this beverage may settle. If you get watery hot cocoa from the first pod, make sure to shake the others before using.
Take care to wipe up any residue; this hot chocolate is quite sweet and may be sticky.
Swiss Miss Hot Cocoa also comes in a light variety (Swiss Miss Sensible), so you can enjoy all the goodness without all of the calories.
