This peanut butter hot chocolate is the richest, creamiest cup of cheer, guaranteed to warm up your heart and your tummy! Made with real melted chocolate, this recipe was inspired by the decadent drinking chocolate that can be found in the charming cafés of Europe. If you’re making this for kiddos, consider using milk chocolate or adding sugar, but if you’re a dark-chocolate-loving adult, feel free to omit the sugar and use a darker chocolate. Either way, it’s delicious.
