Salted Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate

Oh boy!  Doesn’t that sound delicious?! Salted Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate! It’s that time of year for warm and cozy drinks as the temperature drops. The kids will love this and so will you.  It’s even better with a little Salted Caramel liqueur for the adults when entertaining this holiday season.

Salted Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate
Serves 6
We tried a version of this on a winter trip to New York — it’s like a melted peanut butter cup in your mug. Serve warm, topped with marshmallows or a dollop of whipped cream, if you like.

  1. 1⁄4 cup sugar 60 mL
  2. 1⁄4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder 60 mL
  3. 1⁄4 cup water 60 mL
  4. 4 cups 2% or whole (homogenized) milk 1 L
  5. 1⁄4 cup creamy peanut butter 60 mL
  6. 3 oz dark or bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped 90 g
  7. Pinch salt Pinch
  1. In a small bowl or measuring cup, whisk together sugar and cocoa to get rid of any lumps. Whisk in water. Pour milk into a 4-quart slow cooker and add the cocoa mixture, peanut butter and chocolate. Cover and cook on low for 2 hours or until steaming. Add a pinch of salt and whisk until smooth (or use an immersion blender to blend it right in the slow cooker; this will emulsify the mixture, making it ultra-smooth).
