Eat, Drink And Be indie: Tasty Recipes, Inspiring Maker Stories & Exclusives

Are You Putting Peanut Butter In Your Cocoa Yet?

“Hot, hot, ooh we’ve got it… Hot, hot… hot chocolate!”

Remember the song in “The Polar Express” where they break into song and dance because they’re completely overcome with their love for a brimming cup of chocolate? Well, that’s exactly how we feel the second the temperatures drop low enough for us to pull out our sweaters, scarves and mittens. Rejoice! Hot chocolate season is here! Hot, hot! We’ve got it.

You know we love eating chocolate (that’s a hobby, right?), but we also love drinking it. Especially when we have so many delicious indie chocolates that make us melt. Cue the falling snowflakes and turn on the Christmas lights… Next stop, the North Pole. All aboard the indie Hot Cocoa Express!

Peanut butter + chocolate = relationship goals. One’s nutty, the other’s pretty smooth… but opposites attract and they sure balance each other out. One bite of Nutty Steph’s handcrafted, direct-trade chocolate peanut butter bar and we knew. Peanut Butter Hot Cocoa was the obvious first choice for our hot cocoa creations!

We’re can’t say for sure, but we’re pretty positive this is more high quality cocoa than what the Polar Express is serving. (Don’t worry, Santa – we’ll leave you a mug by the chimney!)
