There’s a nip in the air and we’re suddenly craving sweet holiday treats. Fortunately, there may be no better beverage to dip your gingerbread men in than Starbucks’ Toffee Almondmilk Hot Chocolate. What does this new dairy-free Starbucks treat have in it that makes it so magical? Well, grab a napkin — because you’re about to start drooling.

According to the Starbucks website, the Toffee Almondmilk Hot Chocolate is made by combining steamed almond milk with mocha sauce and toffee nut syrup. The drink is then topped with whipped cream and a crunchy caramel brulée topping. We now believe in love at first sip.

To make this drink completely dairy-free, you can even ask your barista to skip the whip.

FoodandWine.com contributors tried the new beverage, which hit stores today, November 21st. They described the concoction as “not overly sweet, but nutty, chocolatey and extremely shippable.” Yum!

The Toffee Almondmilk Hot Chocolate joins another new seasonal sensation on the Starbucks menu. For a limited time, Starbucks is offering its Toasted White Chocolate Cocoa. This treat mixes the flavor of caramelized white chocolate with steamed milk. It’s then topped with candied cranberry sugar and whipped cream.

Hi, we’ll take three of both flavors, please and thank you.

Perhaps the best news surrounding the Toffee Almondmilk Hot Chocolate is that it’s not just a seasonal drink. According to EliteDaily.com, the new beverage will be featured on Starbucks’ permanent menu. Toffee-lovers rejoice!

Pick up your own Toffee Almondmilk Hot Chocolate at your nearest Starbucks to taste what the hot chocolate hype is all about.
