You didn’t think Valentine’s Day would come and go this year without Starbucks having a little festive fun, did you? This holiday celebrates putting chocolate in pretty much everything, so adding it to coffee was a no brainer.

From February 8th until the 14th, participating Starbucks locations throughout Canada and the United States will be offering three special Valentine’s Day-inspired drinks. The Molten Chocolate latte includes chocolate chips melted into espresso, mixed with steamed milk and bittersweet mocha sauce. The creation is then topped with mocha and espresso-infused whipped cream, and drizzled with espresso mocha sauce. This sure sounds decadent, but hey, it’s a holiday so let’s celebrate!

Next is the Molten Chocolate Frappuccino which is a blend of chocolate chips, coffee, mocha sauce, ice and milk. Of course, it is topped with espresso whipped cream. If this isn’t enough, the last drink on offer for the week is the Molton Hot Chocolate. Bittersweet mocha sauce as well as chocolate chips are melted into steamed milk, and then topped with the espresso whipped cream and espresso mocha drizzle. If you’re not a huge coffee lover but still want something satisfying, this sure can sweeten up your week.

Starbucks’ team of recipe developers were inspired by the celebration of love when they came up with these chocolatey delights. Their thoughts were, “What would coffee be in love with?” and the obvious answer was chocolate. These drinks hope to spread a little love regardless of your relationship status. Head on over to your nearest Starbucks with someone you love, whether it is yourself, your significant other or a friend, and enjoy the chocolate love.
