Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate Recipe

Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate

The following post was written by Becky Tarala, a member of POPSUGAR Select Food, whose family-friendly recipes can be found on The Two Bite Club.

Living in the South, the humidity hangs heavy in the air until late in the year. Heck, we even had a pool day last weekend. While some other parts of the country are spotting their first snowflakes, here in Florida we're welcoming our first days of daytime temperatures under 75 degrees. While we are definitely not ready to break out the Winter coats, the trees have finally begun to shed their leaves, and cooler temperatures will be here before we know it. I welcome Fall and love everything about it: the crisp sweatshirt-and-jeans weather, the pumpkin spiced lattes returning to the coffee shops, the anticipation of the first bonfire of the year, and all the stick-to-your-ribs comfort food and steamy drinks that warm you up on a chilly night. One of the hot drinks that I like to make when Autumn finally arrives is this peanut butter hot chocolate. It's simple to prepare, sweet and creamy, and the perfect way to celebrate the arrival of my favorite time of year!
