Hot Chocolate + Pb Cups = Ooh La La! (Kid-Friendly)

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 2 mins

I found this recipe on a bulletin board at my nephew's elementary school in Tecumseh, KS. It was part of a collection of recipes encouraging kids to 'get in the kitchen'. Later that night, I turned on the Christmas lights, lit the fireplace and enjoyed this decadent beverage! It tastes just like Reese's PB cups! WARNING: While this is a delicious drink, it is incredibly rich. 1/2 a cup was plenty for me personally. I doubt I'll make this again, but it was sure fun and easy to make! Enjoy!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place the chocolate chips, half and half and peanut butter in a microwave-safe container.
  2. Heat on high for 30 seconds.
  3. Stir and repeat until the mixture is smooth. Set aside.
  4. In a separate microwave-safe container, heat milk on high 1 minute. Repeat, if necessary. Milk should be warm, NOT boiling.
  5. Pour chocolate mixture into milk and stir vigorously with a whisk until smooth. You may use an immersion blender or frother, if you'd like.
  6. Strain, if needed, serve & enjoy.
  7. May choose to top with whipped cream or marshmellows.

Very good hot chocolate! I'm a Reese's junkie, and this is great. DH does not like pb (???) and he says this is good because there's not a strong pb taste. made for Spring PAC,2011.

RockChalk, this sounds soooo good. DH and I were going over the reviews and this definitely caught our eyes. I can't wait to try and I'll come back and rate then. Congrats on your first posting- it's addictive huh?
