I have this little treat that I give myself occasionally. By occasionally I mean a few times a month, maybe a few times a week. It’s simple, but so amazing and comforting. Take a small bowl, add a spoonful of peanut butter, a sprinkle of chocolate morsels, sit back, relax, and enjoy your decadent treat. The pairing of chocolate and peanut butter is not a new concept. You’ve had peanut butter cups, right? Wouldn’t you love to drink a hot mug of peanut butter cups? I would, and I do. Try it, you’ll like it, I promise.
This is the drink for you when you need a little pick me up, when you’re down in the dumps, when you need a decadent treat, when you have something to celebrate, when you would rather sit in your favorite chair and read than do anything else in the world, when you just need a little chocolate (which is quite often, if you’re like me). Basically, this peanut butter hot cocoa pairs well with any occasion, feeling, or event. I suggest using the dark chocolate ganache for this recipe, but milk chocolate is also superb.
