Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate

Photo by: add a pinch
In the world of make believe, I am walking along the streets of Munich this time of the year while slowly sipping on a cup of mulled wine. Over here in the not-so-cold part of the real world, it is in the mid 20s (celsius).  A shy cool climate far from the kind of cold that seeps into the bones.  Suffice to say, our version of winter is slowly revealing itself. 

Sure, my warm cozy socks are still blissfully tucked away and the portable heater yet to come out from hibernation.  But, not for long.  Our Christmas tree now stands gloriously in the corner of the living room and there is no stopping this fella in setting the mood for the most wonderful time of the year.

Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate

2 cups milk
1/4 cup milk chocolate powder
2 tbsp of creamy peanut butter
dash of cinnamon 
whipped cream (optional)

In a medium saucepan over low heat, warm milk until it begin to simmer.  Whisk in milk powder and peanut butter until smooth.  Pour into individual mugs and top with whipped cream.  Make it more sinful by adding a sprinkle of mini reese's pieces or a regular sized reese's cup chopped roughly.
