Peanut Butter Nutella Hot Chocolate
Just when I thought I couldn’t get anymore serious about my Nutella Hot Chocolate — I went a step further and created this. Thick and creamy Peanut Butter inside Nutella Hot Chocolate to make the most perfect combination of sweet and salty in a hot chocolate I’ve ever had in my life… And I’m thinking yours too.
And once again, those marshmallows melted on top and slowly flowing through the chocolate to make a thick and sweet foamy topping will have you smacking your lips and licking the stickiness off them like it’s no ones bu’ness. Because it’s totally not.
What happens between you and chocolate is your personal haven. And mixing it together with peanut butter is like a gift from an angel sent down to show us a moment of pure paradise.
I’m so hot and bothered I don’t even know what song to sing you guys. I can’t even. I just can’t.
Except: you got a friend in me….you got a friend in meeee….
Do the world a favour and make.this.for.yourselves. Inner peace never tasted so good.
Do you seeee the foaminess happening on that mug?
I kinda think the best part was licking that off the cup. So please, if you make this, you hafta do the same. Even if someone’s looking. Who cares? Let’s re-live our childhoods and just not care for a second what people are thinking. Because I don’t. Ever.
Especially when I have a steaming hot mug full of Peanut Butter and Nutella in my hands.
I know, I know…the diet police say you shouldn’t drink your calories. Well, there’s normal, buttery peanut butter, and then there’s low fat powdered peanut butter. I tried both for the sake of recipe testing this out for you guys…and they both passed. So knock yourselves out. I completely and totally understand the need for reducing calories. So does my beeee-hind.
It’s just me and you again….remember? And your low-cal point friendly secrets are safe with me.
Stay tuned for another version of this one coming your way in about 2.2 seconds, because I added something else to this divine creation to make it even more sensual than it already was…or is.
