This easy healthy comforting Vegan Peanut Butter Hot Cocoa will make you wonder why you ever bought the packaged mixes.
I have been enjoying different varieties of Vegan Hot Cocoa and Vegan Hot Chocolate lately. It all started with Vegan Mexican Hot Chocolate, which has grated Mexican dark chocolate in it. Yum!
One of my favorite flavor combinations is peanut butter and dark chocolate, so I figured that I would love it as a drink. I often eat dark chocolate chips with peanut butter and a pinch of salt. It’s a wonderful snack when I want something sweet and savory.
