pb hot chocolate from eat live run might satisfy my sweet tooth, and warm me up at the same time.
This hot chocolate is slightly sweet, with just a hint of Peanut butter in the background. Mrblocko was a bit skeptical that it might be too peanut-y, but once, again I proved him wrong. Blockette thought it was the best hot chocolate ever. I, however, think the Hot Toffee Chocolate I made last year, still holds the blue ribbon.
Had I actually paid attention, I would have seen that you add the peanut butter after all the other ingredients have been whisked together. I just dumped everything into a sauce pan and whisked away. It may have taken a bit of extra whisking, but it turned out just fine in the end. So go ahead and dump everything in at once if you feel like it. I do suggest not dumping half the bottle of vanilla extract onto your kitchen counter like I did. Although, that's just a suggestion. Do what you will.
