Peanut Butter Hot Cocoa

For me, nothing goes better with chocolate than peanut butter.  This is the perfect comfort drink on a cold winter day :)

  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 tbl unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 4 tbl sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 4 tbl peanut butter
  • whip cream and nuts for garnish (optional)
In a medium size sauce pan pour the milk, cocoa powder and sugar over medium heat.  Stir allowing the sugar to dissolve and the milk to warm.  Once it has warmed to desired temperature, remove from heat and stir in vanilla.  Melt the peanut butter in microwave until it is no longer thick.  Pour 1 cup into 2 mugs and place about 1 1/2 tablespoons of peanut butter in each mug.  Garnish with whipped cream and drizzle remaining peanut butter over the top.
