Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate

I probably shouldn’t be posting this recipe right now. 1) It was 70 degrees out today. Not necessarily hot chocolate weather… 2) I shouldn’t have even played around with this recipe today as I’m supposed to be studying for finals.

But in my defense, 1) peanut butter and chocolate conquers all and should be enjoyed in any weather and 2) I needed to make this today precisely because it’s finals time. Plus I’ve just finished my seminar paper. I feel a tiny celebration is in order. 3) I just dug out my holiday mug this weekend, so it was begging to be filled.

There. 3 reasons why I should bets 2 reasons why I shouldn’t. I’m clearly in the right 😉
