Chocolate Inspirations Hot Chocolate in a Tervis Tumbler

As part of the Foodbuzz Tastemaker program, I get the opportunity to try some cool stuff. This time I was sent a Tervis tumbler.  They say these tumblers are virtually indestructible in that they don't crack, melt, shatter, or chip, and they come with a lifetime guarantee. My assignment was to create a beverage in my Tervis tumbler. It has been cool outside so I decided to make hot chocolate.

I used a Chocolate Inspirations Hot Chocolate Cup, which is basically chocolate in the shape of a disc on a popsicle stick.

You stick the chocolate on the stick into a cup, then add [vegan] milk and it transforms into this luxurious hot chocolate.

The flavor I had was the Caramel Latte and it was absolutely delicious! I mixed it with Almond Breeze original flavor almond milk and I loved the combination. I've been making hot chocolate from powder mixes for years and it doesn't even come close to comparing to this rich hot chocolate made from real Swiss dark chocolate.

The Chocolate Inspirations hot chocolate "cups" can also be used to make dipping sauces for fruit, pretzels or marshmallows; or toppings for dessert. They come in many vegan flavors such as raspberry, marshmallow, and Shamouti orange. Yum!

And by putting the drink in the Tervis tumbler, it stayed warm for the entire 20 minutes it took me to drink it. Tervis tumblers' double-wall insulation keeps hot drinks hot and cold drinks cold.
