Making gourmet coffee drinks at home is easy and is great for your wallet. This Peanut Butter Chocolate Latte tastes like peanut butter cups swirled in your coffee. It is amazing to wake up to in the morning.
I started drinking coffee in college. It just seemed like the adult thing to do at the time. And by drink coffee, I really mean drink liquid sugar and creamer with a little bit of coffee added to it.
Over the years, I have slowly backed off the sugar and creamer amounts. I still cannot drink it black, but it is definitely not as sweet as what I used to make it. Maybe that means I am growing up...
Going out for coffee is always fun to do with my hubby or with friends. And of course any time I can grab a random gourmet drink, I do. I have become quite spoiled by these delicious sweet caffeinated treats.
But my wallet doesn't like the cost of these specialty drinks, so I have been limiting myself to one here and there.
Then I realized that I can make them at home for so much less than the coffee shops...and they taste even better too. Coconut Nutella Latte, anyone?
Ok, let's talk about this jar of Reese's spread!
Holy cow!!!! It should really come with a warning. The first jar I bought may have been completely devoured with a spoon! No, not all in one day, although that could totally happen. I mean it tastes like someone put peanut butter cups in a blender and beat it all up! I am in love with this stuff!
So, I got thinking that this would be an awesome addition to my homemade lattes. I warmed it up in a pan of milk until it was all melted and the milk was hot. Do not boil your milk or it will not froth properly!
When I first started making homemade lattes I used this Ninja blender. Pour the milk in and froth for 1-2 minutes. But just recently I bought this aerolatte milk frother. It is so cute and fun to use. Makes a homemade latte feel more like a coffee house drink when it is made with cute accessories, right?
Cool Whip, sprinkles, and a good devotional are a must with my peanut butter chocolate latte. You do what feels right with yours.

Thank you so much for the recipe! I was craving both a latte and a Reese's Peanut Butter cup. . and this hit the spot. I only had Trader Joe's Cocoa Almond Spread available, but it worked out to taste great! Thanks again!
Oh, one more thing. Blender frothing=Genius! I had never thought of that before and now I realize I no longer need an additional gadget to froth milk.
This sounds like such a delicious treat! such a great idea to make a latte at home and save some money!

That stuff is amazing. In coffee? The best thing ever!

I could think of worst things than liquid sugar. This drink would be a great after dinner treat tonight. A day of wind and snow has left me cold to the bones.

Stop it. This is so perfect, I can't even handle it.

I love this!! My coffee addiction loves a new homemade version as well. And I love that frother! I always forget that's in my cabinet 🙂

That spread looks dangerous, Jocelyn! I'm certain I would eat the whole jar at once. Peanut butter and chocolate are a weakness. This latte would also be slurped up so quickly, I'm sure I'd burn my tongue. Pinning! Have a fabulous weekend!
DANGER-US! I love reeses peanut butter cups.....this looks so good, but I'm pretty sure it's not on my diet ;(

I've never added peanut butter to my latte but what a fabulous idea!
Happy Valentine's Day friend!

Joceyln, I love that you make lattes at home. That's such a smart idea. I have worked at Starbucks for five years. Although there are a lot of benefits to being a barista, I can't imagine spending $4 to $6 on a latte. The nice part of working for a coffee business such as Starbucks is that you get discounts. I, too, started drinking coffee in college, but I'm a black coffee drinker (I know, most people are shocked).
Due to allergies, we're not allowed to have a peanut butter latte at Starbucks; however, it looks like I'll be attempting to replicate yours in my own home very soon. 😀
I can't buy the Reese's spread, Jocelyn. I am afraid that once I try it, I'll never be able to stop!
This latte looks amazing. And pretty much the best way ever to get me to drink coffee!
