Target Will Carry Exclusive Hot Cocoa M&M’s With White Chocolate ‘Marshmallow’ Centers

Picture this: It’s a cold winter night. You’re sitting on your couch, with the television turned to your favorite sitcom. You’ve wrapped yourself in that comfy quilt your grandmother made you and your fireplace is crackling. The only thing missing is a nice mug of hot cocoa.

Or better yet, a bag of hot-cocoa-flavored M&M’s.

That’s right: This November, the Mars brand will bring back one of its holiday favorites, Hot Cocoa M&M’s, and they will be sold exclusively at Target. Here’s a sneak peek of the packaging, posted to Instagram by user @threesnackateers:

Mars introduced its hot cocoa-flavored M&M’s back in 2015, but this year’s version of the wintery treat will receive an upgrade. Instead of the inner chocolate layer, these M&M’s will have a white chocolate center that tastes like marshmallow.

Can you say “ho, ho, yum“?

Keep in mind, though: Hot Cocoa M&M’s will be sold at Target exclusively, which means you won’t be able to buy them anywhere else this holiday season.


And those aren’t the only seasonal chocolate candies that will be available at Target. The big box retailer will also sell Dove Milk Chocolate Hot Cocoa, Ghirardelli Toffee Cookie Crunch, Lindt Snickerdoodle, Hot Cocoa Hershey’s Kisses and Reese’s Santa’s Helpers — all exclusively.

This is turning out to be a very delicious holiday season at Target. Which treat are you most excited for?
