Chocolate Peanut Butter Elixir

Chocolate Peanut Butter ElixirI’m back with another rich, frothy, chocolatey, peanut buttery elixir :)

What would I do without these warm drinks when the temps are cold and the snow is flying?

This recipe is similar to some of my other elixir recipes except for one little twist – the addition of peanut butter. The peanut butter adds a little body and provides a nice dose of protein.
