Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate

I think that peanut butter and chocolate are meant to be together.  Whether it’s in a peanut butter cup frappuccino, a peanut butter chocolate pie, peanut butter chocolate chip cookies, peanut butter brownies, or anything else you can dream up with these two flavors, it’s absolutely delicious! I have been drinking peanut butter hot chocolate for years because it’s a fun way to either jazz up a packet of hot chocolate or to make it from scratch and make it taste extra special.  It’s perfectly cozy and warm, perfect for cold winter days!

This recipe makes about 1 serving but it is super easy to double or triple it.  If you want to make a bigger batch, I suggest using my slow cooker hot chocolate recipe and adding peanut butter to it.

Common Questions About Making Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate

What can I top this drink with?

I usually top peanut butter hot chocolate with homemade whipped cream and drizzle of either chocolate sauce or warm peanut butter but it’s totally up to you what you want on top.

How can I make hot chocolate even better?

Some easy ways to make your hot chocolate to the next level include substituting in heavy whipping cream or half-and-half for some of the milk to make it even creamier or upgrading your chocolate chips to nicer ones like ghirardelli.

What kind of peanut butter should I use?

I suggest using a regular smooth peanut like JIF, more natural or homemade peanut butter might leave you a grainier texture.

Can I use white chocolate instead?

Of course! Directly substitute in white chocolate for the regular chocolate in this recipe.
