So. I’m suuuper envious of everyone back home and all the beautiful snow. I’m not a fan of the sun at the best of times but at Xmas time its even worse. It just doesn’t feel like Christmas! Christmas is supposed to be cold and a little grey. There should be Xmas trees and a fire going and in between the glasses of wine and cocktails (margaritas and mojitos) there is supposed to be warm apple cider and hot chocolate. Its 30 degrees outside… its too warm for apple cider and hot chocolate!! 😦
Oh well, I guess I’ll just have to sweat as I drink my hot chocolate. hee!
Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate
Peanut butter and chocolate… its the most amazing combination, and adding a dollop of peanut butter to this hot chocolate adds an extra smooth, sweet, creamy dimension.
In bain marie melt some milk and dark chocolate together with a splash of milk. Stir continuously. Add in a dollop of peanut butter and keep stirring until everything is smooth and mixed. Then add in more milk and whip. At this point can add the mixture on a low heat to a pot and then whip so that the hot chocolate becomes a little frothy.
