Serendipity's Frozen Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate Recipe
I splurged and bought myself the Serendipity Cookbook and this is one of the hot/cold beverages they serve. . .SO MUCH FUN to make AND DRINK! I absolutely love this and anyone that is a peanut butter lover might just absolutely LOVE this too! =D

I used Schokinag Triple Chocolate for the 6 1/2 ounces of mixed chocolate. For anyone that doesn't know, Schokinag is a European Drinking chocolate that you mix with a little warm milk to slowly melt the chocolate pieces before adding the rest of the milk to make a whole cup. This happens to be my all time favorite hot chocolate! The drink is sweet and rich BUT definitely an awesome treat! =D

6 1/2 ounces milk chocolate, bittersweet chocolate, and semisweet chocolate
3 T. sugar
1 T. unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 cups whole milk, divided
1/2 c. chilled whipping cream
2 T. peanut butter
3 c. ice cubes
chocolate shavings

Place 6 1/2 ounces assorted chocolate in medium metal bowl. Set bowl over saucepan of simmering water; stir until melted and smooth. Add sugar and cocoa and stir to blend. Gradually whisk in 1/2 cup milk; whisk until sugar dissolves. Cool mixture to room temperature.
Using electric mixer, beat cream in small bowl until peaks form. Place remaining 1 cup milk, chocolate mixture, peanut butter, and ice in blender. Puree until smooth. Divide between 2 large glasses. Top with whipped cream and sprinkle with chocolate shavings.
