I love Starbucks salted caramel hot cocoa but they no longer use insulated cups, at least not locally.
There is nothing quite like a $4.00 hot cocoa going cold before you take the first sip, especially when you only work 5 minutes away.
Yep, nothing says treat turn off like cold "hot" cocoa!
Which is why I made this little cozy.
I made it to keep things hot, not to keep my hands cool...so it is not a wrap.
It slips totally on the cup, including the bottom. I didn't want ANY heat escaping!
I even thought (briefly) about making it with a lid but decided fuzz in my cocoa wasn't that appealing.
I used wool yarn and just created a cozy around an empty cup I had. The little green stopper helps a lot too.
So, if you are crochet crafty and want to create one of these little guys, it is super easy to do.
I didn't write down the pattern but there are a TON of them online. The only thing I did is to keep an old cup to test it by. You want it to fit snugly.
