PEANUT BUTTER HOT CHOCOLATE
1 cup of milk (I like unsweetened almond milk)
1 tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tsp. honey
1 tbsp peanut butter

Optional: whipped cream and chopped peanuts

Combine milk, cocoa powder, and honey in a small pot. Gently heat over a medium low heat, whisking until all the ingredients are combined and the cocoa is simmering (you want to avoid a full boil so the milk doesn’t separate).

Add the peanut butter and gently stir until it has melted into the cocoa. Pour into your favorite mug and enjoy!

*Optional: top with whipped cream and chopped peanuts

PEPPERMINT HOT CHOCOLATE
1 cup of milk (I like unsweetened almond milk)
1-2 peppermint tea bags
1 tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tsp. honey

Optional: whipped cream and a peppermint candy (crushed)

Add milk to a small sauce pan along with the tea bags (use one tea bag for a mild mint flavor and two for a stronger flavor). I like to tie the string of the tea bag around the handle so it doesn’t get lost.

Bring heat to a medium low and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove the tea bag and whisk in cocoa powder and honey until well combined. Pour into your favorite mug and enjoy.

*Optional: Top with whipped cream and crushed peppermint candy
