Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate with Oreo Crumbs

by Erin

Of all the chocolate things that are made better by adding peanut butter, it never occurred to me to do the same to hot cocoa. So after seeing this recipe, I knew that it would be mine. And it was as dreamy as I had imagined. I even extra peanut butter-ified it by using peanut butter Oreos. What would have been even more splendid is if I had had some peanut butter marshmallows. Do they exist? If not I need to make them. Or better yet, someone make them for me, please?

This is also the first time I’ve used my Spiffy Cookie mug for anything! More pictures of it can be seen on Facebook.


Serves 1


1/3 cup homemade hot cocoa mix (or 1 envelope store-bought mix)

1 cup hot milk

1 Tbsp creamy peanut butter

1 Oreo cookie, crushed


  1. Combine all ingredients in a mug and enjoy!

Woah, peanut butter in hot chocolate? Why haven’t I ever thought of that? It’s genius! Hot chocolate is just about the only hot beverage I’ll drink and I’m definitely bookmarking this one for the long winter ahead.

Yea I couldn’t believe I hadn’t thought of it either.

I want to say I think I have seen peanut butter marshmallows at the store? But I may be getting confused with caramel ones. They are coming out with the randomest varieties now! Anyway, this sounds totally delicious. My only problem is that the weather around here is still too hot to even dream of drinking hot cocoa… I will have to save this for the cold weather once it hits :)

Yea it hit 90 here today! It just happened to be a little cooler one evening so I took advantage of the moment!

whoa! loving this idea—and peanut butter marshmallows need to happen!!

Lauren at Keep It Sweet October 14, 2011 - 11:33 am

This is such a good idea! I need to go stock up on some hot chocolate:-)

Tara @ Chip Chip Hooray October 14, 2011 - 11:29 am

I don’t know about peanut butter marshmallows, but they’ve got pumpkin spice ones!

Also, did you find that you had to stir the cocoa a lot to get the pb to dissolve? I was just drooling over…I mean, thinking about making this, and that’s the one question I had. :) Yummm!

spiffycookie October 14, 2011 - 11:30 am

I did know they had pumpkin ones! Need to try those as well.

Good question because I wondered the same thing before I made it. I did have to stir it a lot but it’s worth it.

Liz @ Southern Charm October 14, 2011 - 11:24 am

This looks so warm and comforting!!! Licking lips. Yum!!!

Katie @ Dip It In Chocolate October 14, 2011 - 10:44 am

Peanut butter MARSHMALLOWS!! You’re on to something there. I could go for some PB hot cocoa right about now as well.

spiffycookie October 14, 2011 - 10:46 am

I know right!?

Lynne @ 365 Days of Baking October 14, 2011 - 10:32 am

Hmmm…I’ve never been able to even tolerate the smell of hot cocoa since I was little, but maybe this’d change that. I know my kids would love it!

Lauren October 14, 2011 - 9:53 am

My husband would go CRAZY over this recipe!

Jennifer @ Mother Thyme October 14, 2011 - 9:23 am

Oh goodness I must try this! I think I’ve mentioned my love for peanut butter (I love your peanut butter hummus) and I love this idea. Hot cocoa + Peanut Butter + Oreos = DELICIOUS!

spiffycookie October 14, 2011 - 9:48 am

I’m so glad you liked my pb hummus! I think you’re the only one bold enough to try it so far :-)
