Amazing! This is easily among one of my favorite hot chocolate recipes. The Peanut Butter Cup Hot Chocolate is made with common kitchen ingredients, so there is no need to go on an extravagant shopping spree. What I really love about this hot chocolate recipe is its versatility. This Peanut Butter Cup Hot Chocolate is delicious without the rum, so it’s perfect to serve to kiddos, too. That makes this recipe perfect for just about everyone.
Make this recipe for individual serve or multiply it to serve many people. Tailgate parties, Saturday mornings and holidays just got a little easier and tastier!

Microwave mixture on high for 30 second intervals, stirring until mixture is completely heated and smooth. The completed microwave time should take approximately 3 to 4 minutes depending on individual microwave ovens. Once mixture is heated thoroughly and completely smooth, pour into coffee mug over the rum. Stir briefly. Top with whipped cream. Garnish with peanut butter cup on top.
*French Vanilla Whipped Cream – recipe by Cheri Loughlin, The Intoxicologist
1 Pint / 16 ounces Heavy Whipping Cream

I use a whipped cream whipper (iSi Gourmet Whip from Williams-Sonoma) with cartridges to instantly “whip” my whipped cream. Whip this recipe up by hand if you are so inclined.
