Typically January is the time when people focus on healthy eating. But in my humble opinion, winter calls for rich, delicious food to get us through the cold months. It’s just science.

So while I will be featuring some delicious healthy foods on the blog this month, more than anything my goal is comfort food. Food that makes you feel warm inside. Food that makes you want to rip off your work clothes, hop into sweats, and enjoy a big meal on the couch while watching the new winter TV lineup.

Of course being a food blogger my work clothes are sweats, but I’m definitely an outlier.

What could be more delicious on a cold night than a huge mug of hot chocolate? Oh, just PEANUT BUTTER HOT CHOCOLATE. And even better? It’s vegan.

Not that anyone can tell. This hot chocolate is so rich and creamy that no one will notice it’s made with almond milk.

With hot chocolate, it’s all about the presentation. So In addition to a spoonful of peanut butter mixed into the drink, creating the most thick and delicious hot chocolate ever, I drizzled peanut butter on the inside of the mug.

Now let’s get back to the winter TV lineup. I’m currently obsessing over The Knick, Making A Murderer, and Transparent. Oh and of course The Bachelor.

What TV show would you like to cozy up to with this hot chocolate?

I hardly ever drink hot chocolate because I hate how powdery they often are. This is amazing! I want to reach into the screen and grab it.

Happy New Year!
