I bet you didn’t think you would have a valentine this year. I bet your plan was to lay low, avoid the dollar section at Target filled with heart shaped chocolates, and steer clear from all romantic restaurants the day of. I bet you just wanted this stupid holiday reminding you of how alone you really are to quickly pass so you could set your sights on bigger and
drunker better holidays, like St. Patrick’s Day.
I’m happy to tell you that you don’t have to be alone this Valentine’s Day. You have a valentine — one who’s hot, steamy, and sweet.
Starbucks knew you weren’t looking forward to this stupid holiday, so it came out with three new drinks just for you, and they’re all based around the gooey perfection that is the molten chocolate center cake. The three new flavor concoctions are Molten Chocolate Latte, Molten Chocolate Frappuccino, and the Molten Hot Chocolate.
Delish gives you a breakdown of how they’re each made.
The Molten Chocolate Latte starts with melted chocolate chips stirred into espresso before getting topped with steamed milk and a swirl of bittersweet mocha sauce. Then it’s finished with a special mocha-and-espresso–infused whipped cream and an espresso-mocha sauce drizzle. Plus you can order it either hot and iced.
The·Molten Chocolate Frappuccino is coffee mixed with rich mocha sauce and chocolate chips— all blended with milk and ice. But it’s not complete until given that special mocha-and-espresso–infused whipped cream and espresso-mocha drizzle.
Then there’s the·Molten Hot Chocolate, which combines bittersweet mocha sauce and chocolate chips melted into steamed milk so that it’s super smooth, rich, and creamy. If you’re smart you’ll ask for extra mocha-and-espresso–infused whipped cream (seriously, can we take some of that whip home?!) and the espresso-mocha drizzle, too.
BRB, ordering all three at once. If you want them, you better get them fast because they’re gone after Valentine’s Day this Sunday. The Starbucks God giveth and he taketh away.
Oh, and if you don’t order ahead of time on the app, you’re a peasant and you don’t deserve to drink the sweet nectar that is the limited edition Molten Chocolate drink. .
