Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate Float
Food & Drink
For the Floats:
2 cups (500ml) milk
2 teaspoons cornstarch (cornflour)
2 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa powder, I used Hershey's
A heaping ¼ cup (2oz/ 50g) milk chocolate, finely chopped, I used chocolate chips
2 tablespoons (1oz/ 25g) semisweet or dark chocolate, finely chopped, I used semisweet chocolate chips
¼ cup (2oz) smooth peanut butter
Vanilla ice cream, for serving, at least one scoop per cup
Sweetened whipped cream, for garnish, optional
Chocolate syrup, for garnish, optional
3 peanut butter cups like Reese's, for garnish, optional
For Decorating the Cups, optional:
¼ cup (2oz) chopped chocolate, any kind, then melted
3 tablespoons chopped peanuts
For Decorating the Cups
Pour the melted chocolate in a small rimmed plate that fits your cup and the chopped peanuts in another.
Turning the cup upside down, dip the rim into the chocolate, moving and twisting it around. Alternatively, use a clean paintbrush dedicated for kitchen use, to paint the chocolate around the rim of the cup.
Dip the chocolate covered rim into the peanuts. If needed, gently press the peanuts with your fingers to adhere. Chill the cups in the fridge or freezer to set.
For the Floats:
Take a tablespoon or two of the milk, and whisk it with the cornstarch in a small bowl. Set aside.
Place the remaining milk, cocoa powder, chocolates and peanut butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat.
Heat the mixture, whisking constantly but gently, until the chocolate and peanut butter are completely melted and the mixture is steaming, about 5-8 minutes. Do not let it come to a boil. The mixture should be completely smooth and silky without little bits and dots of chocolate.
4. Pour in the cornstarch mixture and whisk together. Continue to heat while constantly whisking until the mixture thickens slightly, about 1 minute.
5. Place one scoop (or more if preferred) of vanilla ice cream in each cup, then pour the hot chocolate mixture over it. The ice cream will float up.
6. Garnish with whipped cream, chocolate syrup and a peanut cup, if desired.
