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!
