Chocolate Peanut Butter Hot Cocoa

Last Valentine’s Day, I made Eric and I some killer Vegan Hot Chocolate. In fact, it was so good, I decided to call it Tall, Dark, and Handsome Hawt Chocolate

IMG_0718

It is creamy. It is rich. It is the perfect hot drink at the peak of Winter when you are snowed in and bundled up on the couch watching a movie.

Eric has not stopped talking about this Hot Chocolate all year, so I knew that I would have to roll it out again this Winter. This time, I made a Chocolate Peanut Butter Hot Cocoa because it just sounded like the right thing to do. Despite the fact that Eric is actually repulsed by peanut butter on its own, he actually loves the combination of chocolate and peanut butter together.

I don’t ask, I just bake.

It is very important that you sift the cocoa powder before beginning. I tried to skip this step and it was horribly clumpy. No one wants to bite into a clump of bitter cocoa powder! I ended up pouring it into my blender to get the clumps out, but I learned my lesson.

Whisk all ingredients together in a pot and bring to a low boil before reducing to low heat. Simmer for a few minutes.

IMG_9784

Easy as that.

Pour into mugs!

IMG_9824

I rimmed the mugs in agave and then turbinado sugar. It worked out great!

IMG_9798

I also added a bow at the bottom of each glass mug.

On top: Dandie’s vegan Marshmallows and Cacao nibs. You can also add chocolate chips on top too.

IMG_9807

Mmm. I love Dandie’s marshmallows. They get all soft and melty in the hot cocoa.

IMG_9816

This cocoa is smooth as silk, creamy, rich, and chocolaty, with just a hint of peanut butter. Perfection.

IMG_9818

But of course I could not leave it at that.

I decided to pour the hot cocoa into an ice cube tray to make delicious ice cubes of fudgy goodness.

IMG_9830

I made them into Rocky Road ice cubes by adding marshmallows, chocolate chips, and cacao nibs.

IMG_9834

Freeze them for a few hours and then use a dull butter knife on each side to pop them out. The result is a delicious Rocky Road fudgisicle cube that you can enjoy alone, make into popsicles, add to a glass of Almond Milk, or throw a couple into a SMOOTHIE! The possibilities are endless.

I’m off for a meeting this morning. I am being interviewed by my undergraduate University- University of Guelph for OSG and Glo Bakery. It should be really fun to reminisce about old times! Any U of G students or alumni out there?

that hot cocoa is soooo delicious looking – it’s literally making my mouth water! i’m so glad i came across your blog (via the great balancing act). your story is very similar to mine – i struggled with my weight and self-confidence during my early college years and finally discovered that listening to my body’s innate wisdom and taking care of myself was the only way to live. goodbye diets and deprivation! and now, i’m in the best shape of my life and soooo much happier : )

will definitely stop by again soon!!!

This looks delightful! I made a similar salted PB hot chocolate recently and it was wonderful, but I’ll have to try your version. More PB and coconut milk can never be a bad thing!

Just an FYI. Most marshmallows sold in the grocery store are NOT Vegan or Vegetarian. They contain gelatin which is made from collagen a substance found in the connective tissues and flesh of mammals. Jello/gelatin is not animal friendly. You can find vegan marshmallows online and maybe at some whole foods markets.

Sorry to be a bummer. Just wanted to throw that out there.

Reply

TracyLea January 25, 2011 at 12:27 pm

I apologize. You don’t need to add my comment you do clearly state that you used vegan marshmallows. I have found that many folks don’t realize marshmallows are generally not a vegetarian item. My mother still doesn’t understand why I can’t just eat around the chicken in her cheesy chicken casserole. (Yeah I’ve been vegan for 12 years I don’t think she will ever get it.) Sorry to be all vegan police on ya.

My cousin went to U of G for a year as an “exchange” student. He is from Louisiana and his girlfriend from Canada so they each went to each other’s schools for a year. They met because they were pen-pals starting in the fourth grade! How adorable is that?! They started dating in seventh grade and are now married with a little girl. They live just outside of Toronto.

I just wanted to say, and I mean nothing “bad” by this, just some constructive criticism, that this website seems to be turning into more of a cooking blog than anything else. I liked the old posts where you explored more personal issues, how to overcome inner turmoil, offered advice, were silly, even just talked about redecorating. Getting a recipe every day is getting a little boring… perhaps some more variety in your posts? Just think about it :)

At some point you spelled marshmallow as “marshmellow” in the post- which made me smile and think thats how it should be spelled all the time!
What could make you more mellow than a marshmellow? Especially in some delish hot cocoa. It is snowing like the dickens here in Boston, so I’ll have to make that soon!

well, this was a lovely treat after 3 hours of shoveling! I was forced to use light coconut milk since trader joe’s didn’t have regular, but I can imagine how decadent it would be with the full fat version–YUM! my son loves it, too :)

I’m so glad I found your site! I’ve tried this peanut butter hot cocoa and it was SO GOOD. Will make it everyday….I do mean EVERYDAY.

Love this post – so festive! When I saw the ice cube tray though, I immediately thought I’d share a link to the most amazing ice cube trays. I was freezing quite a bit of stuff in my trays as well, but kept finding the popping out to be rather tricky.. Then one day, my mom picked me up these Orka Ice Cube Trays, and life has never been the same :) Instead of being 100% silicone (which I don’t like either) they just have little silicone bottoms, so you can easily pop out the frozen food stuff… I love them!! Any who, thought I’d just pass it on!

I realize you posted this long ago, Angela, but I only recently discovered your blog and have been eyeing your recipes for the last couple of weeks. Given the season this was my first try at one of your creations, and I was floored. Delicious, decadent, and satisfying! My husband loved it as well. I can’t wait to try more recipes. With gratitude to you for sharing your talents!

First of all, I”m a HUGE FAN of your blog, and have directed others to it.

Second, I congratulate you on your allergy section! With all the GMOs, a ton of allergies are now cropping up! (And the President signed a bill – it must have been bundled with a bunch of other vital bills b/c I can’t imagine he’d do so otherwise – that if someone is sickened or injured by any of Monsanto’s crops from their seeds, we cannot sue them!)

Third, um, peanuts are in the same “family” as soy – legumes. I first reacted to peanut butter…after eating it all my life…but my allergist said that I’m allergic to soy. As in, I go to the hospital.

From time-to-time, I’ll ask you for a substitute – and, of course, almond butter is a delish substitute for peanut butter in this recipe. However, I gotta watch the marshmallows, too. And I was wondering if you know any good chocolate/cocoa products that don’t have that “manufactured on the same machinery as” warning, please? Mnythx and cheers! Suze

Oh my gosh!
I just made this hot cocoa for my running group for our after- run treat and it was amazing. I cannot get over the richness and thickness of it. I sugared the rims of our glasses too and it was just heavenly. Thank you so very much for your amazing recipes and your amazing book which I just bought, yey :).

I just made these for a Bonfire hosted by my yoga studio. They went over so well, I didn’t even get the chance to try the ice cube idea. Delicious!
