RAIN and a Yummy Cocoa Recipe!

Tons and tons of rain today! We've been needing it here, now we're having a deluge! But what better time to catch up on indoor activities than when it's rainy? Too bad I had to go out in it today to get sandbags and do some other errands, I managed to hit the absolute rainiest parts of the day while I was out. But no matter, now I have a fire going, am under a snuggly blanket and am sketching out some new designs as suggested by some of my blog followers! I also made this delicious Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate, which is super easy and perfect for cold, rainy days. By chocolate syrup, they mean the Hershey's kind that you add to milk or can use as ice cream topping. And of course, you can omit the whipped cream because it does tend to cool the hot chocolate down pretty fast.

Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate

hot chocolate with peanut butterAh, a recipe for the kid in all of us. A sweet and delicious way to have some peanut butter that won't stick to the roof of your mouth. This hot chocolate is quick too, because it uses syrup instead of melted chocolate.

  • 8 oz milk
  • 3 tsp chocolate syrup
  • 1 tbs peanut butter, smooth
  • Whipped cream
Heat milk in a saucepan until hot through. Add chocolate syrup and mix well. Stir in peanut butter and stir until melted. Serve and top with whipped cream.

If you'd rather skip the work and make some instant cocoa, at least use milk if you are able, rather than water; it makes the cocoa so much creamier. :)
