Whittard's Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate

The weather has been impossible to keep up with recently - piles and piles of snow one day to relative warmth the next. In fact, I've had both of those just today!I was't sure I'd even make it in to work this morning, and now the sun is shining! 

I've got a great way of staying warm and toasty and comforted, even when the weather catches you out! 

Not being a particularly big tea or coffee drinker, I take a great deal of solace in hot chocolate - especially when it's cold out. I've been a big fan of the Whittards Hot Chocolates since I was bought the Rocky Road one a few years ago as a Christmas present and I havn't looked back since! 

Its been a while since I've been able to pick up any of the newer flavours, but I found myself in the Leeds store recently and they were giving out free samples of their Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate... 

It was absolutely love at first sip! Obviously I brought a tub of it home with me and I can't tell you how much my life has improved from having it - especially over the last week or so of snow!

You need to make up the Hot Chocolate with hot milk, rather than just adding boiling water, so it needs a little more offort but this is fully repaid in taste - the result is a really creamy, indulgent treat, especially when topped with cream and sprinkles Reese's bits! 

Nest time you pass a Whittard store it's definitely worth popping in to see what they have available as testers, you never know when love might strike! If you don't have a local store you can order online, where they have a great range of delicious sounding Hot Chocolate flavours - I think I fancy the Blueberry Cheesecake one next!

Do you have a favourite winter warmer?
