Can there be anything better on a cold snowy day?!
I’m a little “under the weather” and this Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate made for me by my sweet younger brother just hits the spot.
Rich, creamy and darker than my photo…well, it’s just delicious and you’ll have to try it for yourself! :)
Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate
2 cups whole milk
1 cup heavy cream
5 ounces milk chocolate, chopped (about 1 cup)

Sometimes you just need that chocolate fix but you don’t want to go overboard on calories…

With just two ingredients, it’s hard to beat the ease and convenience of these tasty little morsels!
I did dress mine up a bit with some light whipped topping and a fresh strawberry, but that is totally optional.

When the desire for something warm, chocolaty and sweet hits me, I usually want it homemade.
My family likes the individual Molten Chocolate Cakes I make for them. So do I! But…I don’t need the sugar, so I set about making something similar for myself.
I checked to see what ingredients I had on hand and this is what I came up with. I had no idea if this would work without flour or an egg, but guess what?! It did!
It’s actually very yummy, especially with a little sugar free ice cream on top. The individual serving size is just the right amount for a single serving. It satisfies and when its gone…it’s gone.
On hand I had cream, cocoa, granulated Splenda, unsweetened coconut and vanilla.
In a small cup, I mixed about 1/3 cup of heavy whipping cream and 2-3 teaspoons of cocoa together. It became mousse-like. I added Splenda to taste and about a tablespoon of unsweetened coconut. I know this all sounds kinda weird, but it worked for me! lol
I lightly buttered my little baking dish and spread the mixture on the bottom and a little up the sides.
I put it in a 400º toaster oven for about 15 minutes. The crust on top looked just like a brownie! And inside it was all gooey. Yum-yum!
See all that warm, gooey, yumminess!
Once again I’ve found myself super busy. It’s rush season in the screen printing business, so that means it’s harder to post. It’s even harder to take a decent lunch hour! lol
Anyway, maybe I’m being too impatient. Common sense told me I probably wouldn’t lose more than my first Induction 10 years ago, when I lost 7 lbs.
Maybe I should be happy that I’ve lost 6.5, but it is a little disappointing after all my effort. I’d love to lose 10-15 lbs in 4 weeks. Hopefully that will be doable.
Here’s my Sunday dinner and dessert. Both are supposed to be Induction Friendly. The cake is something I won’t have often. I wasn’t overly impressed with it and think I prefer my *Baked Fudge.
For more on these recipes and my progress, please check my Induction Page.
*My Baked Fudge is a recipe that I threw together one evening several months ago when I wanted a sugar free warm chocolaty treat. I will be sharing the very easy recipe real soon.
