Calling all peanut butter lovers, this warming indulgent hot chocolate is just the thing for a chilly afternoon.

Makes 2


  • 175 ml water 
  • 3 tbsp. cocoa powder, plus extra to finish
  • 600 ml milk of choice
  • 100 g dark chocolate (at least 70% cocoa solids) broken into pieces
  • demerara sugar
  • 3 tbsp. Smooth Peanut Butter
  • whipped cream, to finish (optional)


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.
