Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate

So, yesterday it was nice and warm here. Like warm as in 84 degrees warm. And sunny.

Perfect day to try a new hot chocolate recipe, right? πŸ˜‰

Yes, I did. And no, I’m not ashamed. I was sitting in a cool house, trying to finish a book I didn’t really want to finish, and PBhot chocolate was an excellent choice for the afternoon.

Yes, I did just say afternoon. What? Don’t you normally drink hot chocolate in 84 degree weather? Strange…I thought everyone did things like that. πŸ˜›

Well, how can you blame me? I was browsing through Jenna’s blog, Eat Live Run when I saw this pic:

BOOM. That’s it, honey. All you gotta do is give me a simple recipe with on-hand ingredients and you’ve got me.


So the next time you run into some 84 degree weather and you want to make a little treat to help you through the afternoon slump, try out Jenna’s yummy peanut butter hot chocolate.

I know. I share this with you because I love you.

And because I hate skinny people.

And if you’re skinny, I’d like you to make a triple batch of this every day for the next 30 days. And drink it yourself. Then come back and tell me about your experience.

πŸ˜‰ heehee. oh, by the way, this concoction made my book-reading a much more pleasant experience. I’ll share details later, but I have now finished 4 books this year and only have 8 more to go to reach my goal!!!!! I’m excited, can ya tell?

More on that later. Go drink some hot chocolate. πŸ™‚

    You are so funny:) I think any day is a good day for chocolate, don’t you? You know, I used to *dislike* peanuts/peanut butter combined with chocolate but recently I’ve developed a taste for said combination. I’m off to nab Jenna’s recipe. Thanks for the heads up on it.

    She also has a nutella hot chocolate recipe which looked YUM. I haven’t decided if I want to sacrifice my nutella to try it though. πŸ™‚

    Christa, I’ve been meaning to comment for a long time and say this–your blog looks great! The picture of the brown sugar in your header makes me want to go bake every time I see it πŸ™‚

    And, may I just say, this hot chocolate sounds amazing! I read the recipe, and I think there’s a cup of milk in my fridge that needs to be used up. Immediately. πŸ˜‰ Thanks for posting!
