Peanut butter hot chocolate love

Holy moly, this is good!  It’s like a creamy, frothy, hot & melty peanut butter chocolate cup in a mug!  It’s decadent & comforting and oh-so-simple.  What a delicious (and easy) way to say “i love you”...perfect for a special breakfast treat, an after school surprise for the kiddos, or as a warm dessert.  Marshmallows are optional :).  

Also, check out the Kin Community video I did for their Valentine's Day special below.

serves 2-4 (depending on your mug size)

several large marshmallows

2 c. whole milk
1/2 c. semisweet chocolate chips
2 T. smooth peanut butter

For the marshmallows(if using), work on a piece of parchment paper to prevent sticking.  Using a lightly oiled paring knife, cut marshmallows crosswise into 3 pieces. Place the two end sections on the parchment paper.  Lightly oil a mini heart cookie cutter and punch out hearts.  Set aside the mini hearts and the end pieces with heart cut-outs for garnishing.

Heat milk in a medium saucepan until just about to simmer.  Add chocolate chips and 2 T. peanut butter and whisk briskly to combine. 

Pour hot chocolate into mugs. Garnish with marshmallow hearts.
