Ingredients You Will Need:

  • Sweetened Condensed Milk- Sweetened condensed milk is perfect for hot chocolate. It is thick and creamy and sweet. It makes the hot chocolate extra special.
  • Evaporated Milk- Evaporated milk is thicker than traditional milk and makes it creamier.
  • Peanut Butter-  Make sure the peanut butter is a creamy peanut butter. No one wants peanuts in their hot chocolate.

What is the Best Milk to Use?

The best milk to use is whole milk. The whole milk will provide the hot chocolate with a more creamy texture.

Why use Chocolate Chips and Not Cocoa Powder?

The reason that chocolate chips are used in this peanut butter hot chocolate is that they provide a more rich and delicious flavor.
