"Received this recipe through a local grocery store coupon flyer. I could not stop myself from trying this! I know there is a friend on here (CoffeeB! :) ) who would love this just as much as I did. Like a melted peanut butter cup in a mug! Yummy!"

    Oh my this was so good and really hit the spot. I used homemade hot chocolate mix and crunchy peanut butter. Very decadent tasting treat that doesn't break the calorie bank if done right.

    I love this!! So simple and so tasty! I'll be making this all winter. I used sugar-free cocoa mix and it works very well. Thanks for sharing. Made for PAC Fall 2011.

    I never thought of adding PB to hot cocoa! Brilliant. Instead of using a packet of hot cocoa, I made mine from scratch and with milk (I've always preferred milk). It was sooo good. Hubby and kids loved it too. Thanks for sharing!!
