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 :).

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.
