Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate



With all the hustle and bustle of the holidays, isn’t it nice sometimes just to sit down with a nice cup of cocoa and unwind?  Of course,  it doesn’t have to be the holidays, a nice cup of hot chocolate sounds good to me anytime between October and March. It’s perfect as soon as the weather starts to get chilly.

A great twist to your average hot chocolate is adding some peanut butter.  Yes!  It tastes amazing .  Creamy peanut butter mixed into warm chocolate and topped off with whipped cream.  Add a drizzle of some melted peanut butter and it’s the perfect winter treat!
