Starbucks Salted Caramel Hot Cocoa -- DIY

We typically delete the emails that land in our box every day from without even opening them, but today we clicked with abandon.

Look! One of our favorite Starbucks drinks is now available to DIY. This is great news, as we've noticed that salted caramel hot cocoa has fallen off many local Starbucks menus and -- horror -- when we did locate it at an outpost along the I-10, on our way home from LA last month, they didn't stock all the ingredients.

No fear. Here you go. You're welcome.
