Skoshbox - January Box

The January Skoshbox was filled with a great variety of sweet, sour, and even some savory snacks!  From the top left we have chocolate panda chocolate/cookies, fruit gummies, yakitori corn puffs, sugar "bread" cookies, cola-flavored soft candy, and a tongue-staining soda gum - I told you there was a lot in there, haha.  I have not had the majority of these snacks before, and it was really interesting trying each of them out.  I hope Skoshbox continues to add in lots of unique snacks in my future boxes!

Trader Joe's - Hot Chocolate Sticks

How cute are these hot chocolate sticks from Trader Joe's? As soon as I saw them on the shelf I knew I had to buy a box.  The idea is very simple - you warm up your milk, and then stir the hot chocolate stick in the mug until the chocolate melts into the milk to make a delicious hot chocolate.  

I liked that the sticks were individually wrapped - they would make a cute decoration for a gift!  You could also adjust the amount of chocolate you melt in very easily, if for some reason you didn't want to melt in all of the chocolate... haha.  I hope they bring these back again during the holidays this year!

Cafe Mocha M&Ms

I have to confess- I bought these Cafe Mocha M&Ms a while ago and then planned on baking with them... then forgot about them, haha.  Finally I decided to try them out, and I loved the coffee scent and subtle flavor.  I generally like coffee-flavored chocolates and desserts, so these were right up my alley.

I always love coffee and chocolate together, so my first instinct was to mix these M&Ms into some brownies - yum! I know these look pretty much like the holiday M&Ms but there's definitely a coffee flavor throughout.  These also add some color and texture to the regular brownies, which is always a plus.  I can't wait to see what the next round of limited edition flavors are!
