How to Make Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate

You don't need a fancy hot chocolate machine to make this.

Just a microwave, a large mug and these ingredients...

  • 2 squares (13g) of sweet chocolate (Baker's German's sweet chocolate)
  • 8 ounces (220ml) of milk
  • 1 tablespoon (11g) of Reese's Peanut Butter Chips
  • 1 teaspoon (4g) of your favorite brand of peanut butter



Put the sweet chocolate into your large coffee mug or cup. Add the Reese's chips and the milk.

Microwave for about 1 and 1/2 minutes.

Remove from the microwave and let sit for about 30 seconds, giving the chocolate and chips time to melt.

Add the peanut butter and stir till smooth. Any bits that haven't melted can be eaten with a spoon.

Kinda like an extra treat with your cup of chocolate!

Put a little grated chocolate on top for decoration.

Think you can improve the recipe? Make another cup and adjust the amount of each ingredient to suit your taste.

Or try using semi-sweet chocolate in place of sweet for a stronger chocolate flavor.




Calorie Count

That's a pretty rich beverage. What's the calorie and fat count?

The calorie count is about 340 and the fat count is around 17.5 g when made with 1% milk and Baker's sweet chocolate.

You can always adjust the ingredients to reduce the fat and calories. Or just make a half recipe.

Or have it only on a special occasion when you deserve to splurge.




Try a warm cup of peanut butter hot chocolate. You might like it. I don't even like those famous peanut butter cups. But I liked this recipe. My hubby likes both. Won't know till you try it. Take a break from the ordinary, try the extraordinary!
