Think of this basic recipe as the liquid version of a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. If you want to add a little heat to your hot chocolate, try a savory peanut butter with a blend of hot peppers, or for a sweeter take, P.B. Loco’s European Cafe Mocha peanut butter.
Peanut Butter
Hot Chocolate
Start to finish: 15 minutes
Servings: 4
3 cups whole milk
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
powder
1 cup dark chocolate chips
Mini marshmallows, or candy
peanut butter cup, to garnish (optional)

In a blender, combine the milk, peanut butter, sugar and cocoa powder. Puree until very smooth, then transfer to a medium saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat.

Add the chocolate chips and heat, stirring constantly, until the chips have melted and the mixture is smooth, about 4 to 5 minutes. Ladle into mugs and garnish with marshmallows, if desired.
