I’m just going to start right out and say “YUM!” This hot chocolate combines everything your craving in one cup – chocolate, peanut butter, and caramel. Can it really get any better than this on a cold night?!
There is nothing better than snuggling up on the sofa with my favorite blanket, a movie on Netflix, and a mug of hot chocolate.
In high school there was a coffee shop that my friends and I used to go to that served Peanut Butter Caramel Hot Chocolate. They had a fancy name for it but now I can’t remember what it was. All I know is that I was craving it recently and I had to make it myself.
It’s really easy to make and what’s great about this mix is – once it’s made, you’ll have plenty for the winter. I like to make it for Christmas morning at my parents house so we can drink hot chocolate while opening our presents.
- 4 cups nonfat dry milk powder
- 1 1/2 cups sugar
- 1 cup non-dairy powdered coffee creamer
- 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 (5.9 ounces) package JELL-O Chocolate Instant Pudding
- 1 (4 ounces) package JELL-O Instant White Chocolate Pudding
- 1 cup KRAFT Caramel Bits
- 1 cup peanut butter chips
- 1/2 cup grated BAKER’S Semi-Sweet chocolate
Directions: Mix all ingredients in large bowl. Store in airtight container.
To make hot chocolate: Add 1/4 cup of cocoa mix to 8 ounces of milk in saucepan. Heat on medium heat until peanut butter chips and caramel bits have melted. I like to add a little more peanut butter chips and caramel bits to the saucepan just in case I didn’t get enough from the mix.
And since the holidays are upon us, why not make a few jars to give as gifts.
Divide the hot cocoa recipe evenly into 4 mason jars. After you’ve divided the recipe among the jars, fill the jars with extra caramel bits, peanut butter chips, and chocolate shavings – because you can’t have too much of that in the mix.
