Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate

So…I’ve been thinking.

If I decide to just nix this whole blogging thing and instead open a hot chocolate truck and drive around the country, would you guys support that decision? I need to know these things before I hit the open road. That way, I could come to you and deliver you your hot chocolate flavor of choice. We might even sell tacos, too. I don’t know. I haven’t really thought about it. (cough cough)

But in all honesty, if you thought nutella hot chocolate was a good idea, this super rich peanut butter hot chocolate will completely blow you away.

It blew me away! So much so that I actually purred when I tried it while standing over the stove last night.

Wait, what?

I’m sure I’m not the first person to think of this so I can hardly take credit for such a delicious, creamy, mouth-watering, decadent creation of the gods.

It’s like drinking a chocolate bar covered in peanut butter—definitely a dessert in and of itself and best topped with fresh whipped cream and salted roasted peanuts.

And if your jeans feel tight after drinking this, it’s best just to blame the dryer. And then use that as an excuse to go shopping.

I’m doing this because I love you.

I promise I’ll feature something healthy with vegetables in it soon. Just not today.

    Is it wrong to plan to make this as soon as I’m back from my Zumba class? No, I’ll just tell myself I earned it at Zumba! ๐Ÿ™‚

        Yep. I used to beat myself up over eating so much and being full or just always wanting to bake, etc.

        Then I realized – maybe I just love food. Is that so wrong?

          Oh please. I am a 32 year old mother of 3 that is carrying an extra 20lbs. If I don’t go to Zumba before consuming something decadent I will be carrying an extra 30lbs in short order.

          I did not mean “earn” as in I deprive myself and only allow treats when I feel I deserve them, I mean “earn” as in I’ve done something to actually appreciate a treat.

    Wow! I just made this today and it was fabulous! As far as it being unhealthy, it really isn’t. The milk and peanut butter provide good protein and fats and it totally filled me up the rest of the afternoon. I reduced the sugar to 1 Tbsp. because I like rich chocolate flavor and it was great! So creamy and delicious I will never make the packaged stuff again, hello homemade!

    Holy crapamoly! I made this tonight, it tasted like snickers in mug! A tip is to stick a hand blender in the pan and give it a schushzzz for a minute before pouring out- it makes it frothy and wonderful xx

    I am a peanut butter queen and was convinced I’d thought of every possible way to enjoy it…Apparently not! This is going to be in my mug tomorrow night! Thanks so much for the inspiration!

    What I do is make hot chocolate, (the kind you heat up in the microwave) and put 2 spoons of peanut butter. Mix it well. I usually put some Nutella and/or chocolate or caramel syrup. Yum!! ?

    Used non-GMO soy milk and it worked just fine! I would have liked to have put a pinch of salt though, as an afterthought, as my PB was unsalted. The PB flavor was subtle, not sure if it was the brand I used. It was good. Definitely a button-popper on the pants, but if you keep your thermostat low, you shiver off the calories, right?

    OH MY GOD. This is soooooo good! The recipe is a little bit too big for me but that is easily fixed. With the cocoa powder instead of hot chocolate mix it tastes like a liquid peanut butter brownie! I bet the hot chocolate without the peanut butter would still be awesome. I put some chocolate chips on top and they all melted to the bottom and I scooped them up with the spoon. Amazing! Thank you so much for the recipe!

    Yesterday all of a sudden the idea of peanut butter hot cocoa hit me out of nowhere. I instinctively knew it was the right thing to do, but I always like to check on-line when I have a great idea to see if it is new or not. Figured there was no way I could have been the first person to think of this obvious duo. Still, surprised not to have ever heard of it or been served it before. Why wouldn’t everybody do this to their hot chocolate? I added a dash of cinnamon just to keep it real. Real delicious!
