If this post looks familiar it’s because I posted it back in 2014! I updated it slightly but felt this post needed a lot more love. I’ve been very sick with pneumonia so I’m unable to work at the moment. I hope you enjoy this blast from the past recipe!

Over a year ago Art and I decided to get rid of cable. The prices kept going up and too many time we found ourselves complaining about nothing to watch on TV. Why were we paying over $100 a month for TV that we apparently didn’t find very entertaining?

While I definitely miss my DVR and super trashy reality TV (Toddler and Tiaras!) I’m glad we got rid of cable. What a freaking waste of money. Really, why should anyone be pay over 1k a year just to watch mostly re-runs of shows, trashy reality TV (even if I did love it) and sports crap?

Now we have Netflix and Amazon Prime. While I will say I sometimes have a hard time finding something to watch I always find something. Art likes to laugh at me because I get into phases where I will watch Murder She Wrote for days straight and then all of a sudden I’m completely over it and will pick a different show to obsess over. {Fun fact! I met Angela Landsbury and Michelle Obama on the same day back in 2012. How is that for a crazy day at work!}

If you really want to know I’m back to watching Beverly Hills 90210. A while ago I talked about how I watched the first season but then had to stop because they had no other seasons. Well, now they have more. If you’re still wondering I still think Brenda is the worst.

Oh, and I’m totally team Brandon. Dylan looks like a weird 30-year old who is trying to fit into high school. Plus his voice is super annoying. If I have to hear him say “but Bren….” one more time I just might scream.

It’s totally rational to be annoyed at a show that went off the air almost 18 years ago…right?

Wait…2000 was almost 18 years ago? Have I almost been graduated from high school for 18 years?

Crap. I’m getting old. Do you people realize I’m old enough to almost have a child driving? I mean in reality, I have no children. I have cats. Who really do nothing but annoy me for food and then sleep all day.

I could not imagine taking care of a human that actually belonged to me. I’m great at taking care of other peoples humans. I’m just not sure I’m ready to have a little human of my own.

See this peanut butter hot chocolate? I had this for lunch. Seriously. I made this hot chocolate and then drank both huge glasses. That was my lunch.

Children cannot live on just peanut butter hot chocolate.

I’m pretty sure of that.

Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate

This rich and creamy peanut butter hot chocolate is perfect for keeping you warm all winter long. Plus it's super simply because it's made in your blender!

Yield: 2 servings

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 10 minutes

Ingredients:

For hot chocolate:

  • 1-1/2 cups whole milk
  • 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate morsels
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter

For topping:

  • 1 cup cold heavy whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon Truvia sweetener OR 2 teaspoons sugar
  • Chocolate Syrup
  • 2 tablespoons melted peanut butter

Directions:

For hot chocolate:
Add milk, chocolate morsels and peanut butter into your high speed blender. I used my Vitamix.

Top the Vitamix and process on high for 4-5 minutes until the mixture is hot and frothy.

Pour hot chocolate into 2 mugs.

For topping:
While your hot chocolate is processing make whipped cream.

In the bowl of an electric mixer add whipping cream and sweetener. Whip until the mixture has reached soft peaks.

Top hot chocolate with equal amount of whipped cream and drizzle on chocolate syrup and melted peanut butter.

Notes: If you do not own a high powered blender just add all hot chocolate ingredients to a small saucepan and warm on the stove over medium heat until hot and creamy.
