Pip's top tip : Listen with sound on

Just picture it. Slippers on. Log fire going. Your favourite film on the TV. All that, and peanut butter hot chocolate in hand.

  • 175ML/¾ CUP WATER
  • 3 TBSP COCOA POWDER, PLUS EXTRA TO FINISH
  • 600ML/2½ CUPS MILK
  • 100G/3½ OZ DARK CHOCLATE, BROKEN INTO PIECES
  • 1/½ TBSP DEMERARA SUGAR
  • 3 TBSP PEANUT BUTTER
  • WHIPPED CREAM, TO FINISH

Bring the water to a simmer in a saucepan over a medium-high heat. Whisk in the cocoa powder until no lumps remain, then add the milk and bring back to a simmer. Whisk in the chocolate and sugar until the mixture is smooth and creamy and the chocolate is melted, about 5 minutes. Add the peanut butter and stir well to mix.

Divide the hot chocolate between 2 mugs, top with whipped cream and dust with cocoa powder.
