RECIPE FOR PEANUT BUTTER HOT CHOCOLATE WITH HEART-SHAPED MARSHMALLOWS

INGREDIENTS

  • Large marshmallows
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons smooth peanut butter - divided

DIRECTIONS

For the marshmallows, work on a piece of parchment paper to prevent sticking. Using a lightly oiled paring knife, cut marshmallows crosswise into three pieces. Place the two end sections on the parchment paper. Lightly oil a mini heart cookie cutter and punch out hearts. Set aside the mini hearts and the end pieces with heart cut-outs for garnishing.

Heat milk in a medium saucepan until just about to simmer.  Add chocolate chips and two tablespoons peanut butter and whisk briskly to combine.  

Pour hot chocolate into mugs. Garnish with marshmallow hearts.
