Chocolate Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate Spoons
Today’s #SundaySupper post really hits home. Our mission is bringing families together around the family table, and in wake of the Newtown shooting on Friday, we are encouraging everyone to give your loved ones extra hugs as we remember those lives that were lost. This post was written before Friday, so I apologize if it seems too festive for the occasion.
Ever have one of those evenings where everything you did in the kitchen was a complete failure, regardless of doing it how many times before? That was me the night I made these Chocolate Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate Spoons. I went through probably three bags of chocolate chips because I kept messing up. However, they made it to the table for today’s #SundaySupper of Holiday Drinks and Appetizers! They only take five minutes and make a great last-minute gift.
I knew I wanted to do this fun variation of hot chocolate. Hot chocolate was something I gave a lot as gifts when I couldn’t afford much. Find a nice mug, throw some hot chocolate mix in it, and instant cheap yet thoughtful gift. Last year, my coworker did something similar except she gave me a hot chocolate spoon, where the spoon was covered in chocolate flavored with raspberry. All you had to do was stir a cup of hot milk, and the chocolate would melt into a decadent winter comfort drink.
I originally started with the idea of peppermint mocha using peppermint marshmallows and espresso powder. The marshmallows turned the chocolate into a faux mousse. Ok start again, this time using peppermint extract. I’m not sure what happened, but the chocolate seized. Frustrated, I gave up the peppermint mocha idea and melted chocolate chips in the microwave. Then I dipped spoons with a scoop of peanut butter, decorated with sprinkles, and let set in the fridge.
I chose to dip halfway to show off the peanut butter, but you are welcome to dunk the whole thing in chocolate. The quality of your chocolate is especially important since you don’t have much else (as opposed to a cake where you have other ingredients to improve the not-so-superior chocolate).
These Chocolate Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate Spoons can be served two ways. You can set up a hot chocolate bar complete with marshmallows and whipped cream where guests can assemble their ideal drink or you can wrap them in treat bags and give away for the holiday. They also make great party favors. And like I said earlier, they only take five minutes to assemble (not including chill time), so you can easily knock out a dozen or two without having to spend too much time in the kitchen.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate Spoons

Hot Chocolate Spoons with chocolate and peanut butter

While I do not like peanut butter, my husband adores it. He would absolutely love this peanut butter hot chocolate. I might even make him some for today!
Those look crazy good! I love chocolate spoons with coffee, but this would be great for the kids and whole family. I imagine coming in from a day of sledding and having decadent hot chocolate. Thanks for sharing.
Holy cow, these photos are just as amazing as the ones for the award winning cookies. Wow wow wow. You deserve the praise, sweets, your photoskills have made so much progress the last year, I can’t really believe it.
Really cute idea. I will say, though, that just loading up a spoon with chocolate or peanut butter is how I usually eat those things! ;)
I caught myself staring at the photos because of how great the photos are and how much I love peanut butter and chocolate. These are so simple and so wonderful. Awesome.

Yummy, chocolate and peanut butter one of my favorites!!
What a fabulously creative idea! I love it. My problem would be that it would never get to the cup. I think I would just eat it straight off the spoon :-)
I LOVE these goodies! And I too would be very tempted to just EAT them!! LOL Great recipe and drink though!
You´re getting extremely creative Carla! These are amazing, and the idea of a hot chocolate bar will stay in my mind for a while!

One word: GENUIS! I love peanut butter (and seriously eat it out of the jar…. This could be versatile enough to serve as standalone peanut butter chocolate spoons.
Okay, so when am I coming over for this?
Such a fun, creative idea! Who wouldn’t love these spoons????
ooohhh aaahhhh I’ll bring the spoons!
Who needs hot chocolate, I just want to eat all those spoons!
I am in love with these!! Chocolate and peanut butter is such a classic combination, but never had it in a drink before!

love this idea. Even if I don’t do this for christmas since am at my sister’s place :) I will be making this. Such a creative idea and the spoons look fab !
Oh my goodness these are so cute
Those spoons would never make it into the cup. Mark my words! I love how these look!
Mmmmmmm!!!! I love pb hot cocoa! These spoons are so great!!!
TOO Cute!! Thanks for sharing
Aww – these look so cool for hot chocolate. Fun to make and enjoy. Yum!
Damn, girl – I bow down to you. First, I love the styling of your gorgeous photos here. Second, chocolate and peanut butter on a spoon is freaking brilliant. I love hot chocolate so much and can totally see myself slamming back several mugs of this while also noshing on a spoonful (or several) of just the chocolate and peanut butter. This would be bad for my waistline!
Yummy! Chocolate & PB in cocoa or coffee put a smile on this Ninja’s face. Thank you =)
Everything about this is pretty much perfect and they look so adorable too! p.s. I would totally eat those spoons as is. :-)
Third way of serving – just eat the peanut butter and chocolate right off the spoon! Yes, I am pregnant :-) Seriously, though, these are adorable!
What a fun drink. I love the combo! I can’t wait to try this recipe. Your photos are beautiful.
Love this idea! To make your chocolate peppermint spoons, make our chocolate spoon, and use crushed candy cane sprinkled on it before it sets!
