Chocolate-lovers everywhere rejoiced upon hearing the news of the new Starbucks Valentine's Day drinks, and we knew we wanted to taste them immediately. The Molten Chocolate Latte, Molten Chocolate Frappuccino, and Molten Hot Chocolate are like the mocha drinks you know and love . . . intensified.
The difference between the molten drinks and the regular chocolate drinks is in the preparation: the barista scoops chocolate chips into the cup before letting the espresso pour into it, melting and infusing with the chocolate, creating a rich syrup. As for the Frappuccino, this is a next-level version of the Java Chip Frappuccino — it's topped with espresso-infused whipped cream with an espresso mocha drizzle. "Chocolatey with a punch" is how one of our taste testers described these sweet drinks.
Needless to say, if the combination of coffee and chocolate is your favorite, you should definitely treat yourself to one (or all) of these limited-edition drinks the next time you make a Starbucks run — you have until Valentine's Day.
