Stephen's Hot CocoaWhen my husband and I first had Stephen’s Hot Cocoa, we fell in love with it!  It was the richest, best tasting hot cocoa we’d ever had!  We even searched the stores for it when we moved from Utah to California.  I was so excited when I found it in the store and even more excited when I discovered I could order it online – woo hoo!  There are so many different flavors available online – from mint to raspberry to candy cane to peanut butter and so on!  Our family favorites have been Chocolate Cinnamon,

Thanks to Indulgent Foods and Stephen’s Hot Cocoa, we had the opportunity to try out some new and fun holiday flavors – Candycane Hot Cocoa and Peanut Butter Cup Cocoa.  Oh man!  They were so good!!! 

Stephen's Candycane CocoaThe Candycane Cocoa is a 16 oz. container that retails online for $4.99.  At this time of year, you can find Stephen’s Candycane Cocoa in stores, including Safeway, QFC, and others.  Stephen’s combines crushed peppermint candycane with their decadent milk chocolate in this delicious and rich hot cocoa mix.  You can enjoy this flavor all year round! 

Stephen's Peanut Butter Cup CocoaThe Peanut Butter Cup Cocoa was also super yummy!  It comes in a 16 oz. container and retails online for $4.99.  Stephen’s Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Cocoa combines real, miniature peanut butter cups that melt while you mix.  It is really good!

Thanks to Indulgent Foods, 3 lucky readers will win 1 coupon each for a FREE container of hot cocoa!!!

    Hi, I have been looking everywhere for that can! I live in CA do you know what store i could find it at?
