As you read this post, I’ll be on a plane flying to Charleston, South Carolina. Squirrel and I are taking a week long foodie vacation. I booked this trip in the spring as a graduation present to myself. An entire week of food…now that’s my kind of vacation!

I wanted to leave you with something sweet and warm to keep you cozy while I’m away. I combined two of my favorite snacks to create a very decadent sip-able treat. How does milk chocolate peanut butter hot chocolate sound?

This warm treat tastes just like a melted Reese’s cup. Basically, it’s a peanut butter cup in drinkable form. Say what!

This recipe makes enough hot chocolate to fill a large mug. Top with mini marshmallows to make it extra special. Extra mallows for me, please!

After one sip of this warm treat, and you’ll never go back to the powdered version. I don’t get adding water to powdered chocolate. Yeah, there’s powdered milk in the packets, but it’s just not as good as the real thing. Am I right?

I want thick, creamy moo juice!

While you’re sipping on this sweet beverage, I’ll be doing a food crawl in Charleston.

Don’t worry, I’m not going to leave you hanging while I’m gone. I have Kayle of The Cooking Actress stopping by on Tuesday to provide you lovelies with a delicious treat, and I scheduled a healthy treat for you on Thursday. When I get back, I promise to overwhelm you with photos from our trip. If you just can’t make it until I get back, feel free to stalk my trip on instagram. It’ll be like you’re traveling with me.

Now, I have to go stalk Pinterest so I can get my outfits together for Charleston. See you next week!
