Chocolate Peanut Hottie….. More boozy milkshakes!

In February I got to try out some Peanut Hottie. As a hot drink it’s warming, satisfying and a bit of a low-calorie treat, but me being me, I ended up making some pretty sexy, dirty, boozy, Peanut Hottie & bourbon milkshakes with it. Of course I blogged it and it is now without question one of my most popular blog posts. Turns out you lot love a dirty milkshake!

Last week I got my paws on some CHOCOLATE Peanut Hottie. Yup, you read that right. It’s like hot chocolate with a dollop of peanut butter stirred through it. Delicious, a little bit naughty and still only 83 calories a mug. But what could I do with this Chocolate Peanut Hottie? There was only one answer, make a milkshake and add booze! So I did.

First off, for the small boy who was stood in the kitchen bellowing “I want a milkshake pleeeease!” I made a non-alcoholic version…

Chocolate Peanut Hottie Milkshake (serves one)
2 scoops of vanilla ice cream
4 teaspoons of Chocolate Peanut Hottie
350mls of milk

Put it all in a blender and whiz up for a minute, pour it into a glass, you can top it with squirty cream and a peanutty treat if you’re being fancy, I added a slice of a Snickers bar.

I spent ages thinking about what I should slosh into my milkshake, I did consider bourbon, which would still work a treat, but I wanted something different to what I’d had before. Amaretto (a delicious almond flavour liqueur) seemed a pretty good choice, I figured the nutty flavours would really work with the Chocolate Peanut Hottie and I was not wrong.

Chocolate Peanut Hottie & Amaretto Milkshake (serves one)
2 scoops of vanilla ice cream
4 teaspoons of Chocolate Peanut Hottie
2 shots of Amaretto liqueur
350mls of milk

Again, put everything in a blender and whiz it up for a minute. Pour it into a glass, add squirty cream and your slice of Snickers (only if you’re being fancy) and enjoy.

I used vanilla ice cream, but if you wanted to boost the chocolately flavours you could use chocolate ice cream, or a scoop of vanilla and a scoop of chocolate would be good too.

I have to say it was excellent, Peanut Hottie works so well in milkshakes and it does have fewer calories than just dolloping in actual peanut butter, though I guess if you’re drinking this you’re less concerned about calories and more concerned about putting awesome things in your mouth. And by god, this is an awesome thing.

You can find Peanut Hottie in Sainbury’s, Waitrose, Booths and Tesco.
