Total Time

Cook 10 mins

This is going to be a must try in winter for anyone who like peanut butter. A good quality smooth peanut butter should be used and a dollop of cream on top dusted with cocoa doesn't go astray either. :-)

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 tablespoon cocoa
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 3 cups water
  • 375 ml evaporated low-fat milk
  • 13 cup smooth peanut butter


  1. Dissolve the cocoa and sugar in 3 cups water in a medium saucepan.
  2. Whisk in the evaporated milk and peanut butter and then bring to boil.
  3. Heat for 10 minutes, stirring continuously.
  4. Pour into four mugs to serve.

I am going to give it 4 stars. The people I thought would like it did not. But I did! I loved the taste of peanut butter although the kids did not. I topped each mug with cool whip and chocolate sprinkles. Made for the October Aussie/NZ recipe swap.
