Peanut Butter Pretzel Hot Chocolate

Peanut butter and hot chocolate are a dessert flavor-combo that never goes out of style. Salty, sweet and rich, we love how this gourmet hot chocolate recipe combines these two ingredients, and then goes one step further by adding local pretzels and mini marshmallows! The effect of these sugary, crunchy garnishes is charming and delicious. Swap this out for dessert at your next dinner party, or enjoy it cozied up around a fireplace after shoveling snow.
