Peanut Butter+ Hot Chocolate= Perfect Marriage

I was sitting in a mechanic's shop during an oil change and picked up a LIVING magazine. A recipe for hot chocolate popped out at me!

 The best combination in the world of food is CHOCOLATE AND PEANUT BUTTER!My dear friend, Lindsay, made rockin' cupcakes- Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcakes. Check it out!

I came home and got busy with the recipe. I used organic peanut butter which is a bit oily and left a small about on oil on top. Other than that, it is incredibly rich and I put the leftovers in the refrigerator which I reheated the next day and it was just as yummy!

Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate - serves 4
3 cups milk
1 cup light cream
8 oz. chocolate bar, chopped
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
pinch of salt
In a medium pot over medium heat, warm the milk and cream. Add chocolate car, stirring until dissolved. Add peanut butter and salt. Stir until hot and serve immediately.  *As the hot chocolate cools, it separates.


  1. Mmm!! Sounds yummy. Hot Chocolate is one of my favorite things to make.

  2. I had to laugh when I saw this because when I first looked at it I thought you meant that if you have chocolate and peanut butter then you will have a perfect marriage... :) That looks amazing btw!!

  3. Juna, this sounds delicious! I just might make this tonight! Oh and Sarah, if you both drink this, you will have a perfect marriage! Chocolate and peanut butter makes everyone happy, right?! LOL!

  4. I have to make your PB&C hot chocolate! I wish I read this earlier when the kids came in from the snow. Thanks for the plug :)

  5. I adore peanut butter and chocolate, too but never thought of this combination in a drink! Thanks for sharing!
