Yummy peanut butter hot chocolate

Baby, it's cold outside! Winter is the perfect time to experiment with hot drinks. I decided to make a hot treat for the kids when they came inside from doing chores today. Since they love hot chocolate and peanut butter I decided to see if I could use the new Reese's spreads to make them a gourmet hot chocolate drink. It worked out wonderfully, and they loved it! It was super easy. Head into the kitchen and I'll show you how.


easy peanut butter hot chocolate recipe

All you need are:
Mug full of milk. (I used 2%)
1 tablespoon Reese's spreads
Whipped cream & cocoa powder for garnish (optional)

Heat milk to almost boiling. I used a heatproof container in the microwave. You can use a stove if you'd like. Add 1 Tbs Reese's spreads. Mix using a stick blender for about 30 seconds. Pour into mug. Garnish with whipped cream and cocoa powder. Yummy!

So, on to the details....this jar of Reese's spreads was sent to me to review. The problem is everybody is saying the same wonderful things about it. It's like a peanut butter cup in spread form. It smells amazing when you open the container and tastes fabulous. So instead of just repeating what everybody else said (even though it's true) ....I decided to come up with a use beyond just a spread. Hench the peanut butter hot chocolate recipe. I hope you like it as much as we do!

Edit: I had a few messages saying that it's hard to find Reese's Spreads in the grocery store. I have found an 8 pack of Reese's Spreads on Amazon. There are also single jars on Amazon which I would probably buy in that situation.....since this is a new product it should be coming to a grocery or big box store near you very soon!

  5. What a awesome idea, I would have never thought of using peanut butter that way. I believe I found this spread in Kroger before but I could be wrong. #ProductReviewParty
