There are a ton of classic combinations out there: ham and cheese, milk and cookies, or apples and cinnamon. These combinations work because the flavors complement each other so well, they make our taste buds do a happy dance! One of my favorite combinations has to be peanut butter and chocolate. Salty, savory peanut butter alongside rich and creamy chocolate simply makes my palate sing. The most iconic example of this is a Reeses candy bar, but that’s not exactly the best use of my calories! When I’m craving a sweet treat, I’ve started turning to this Peanut Butter Mocha Espresso Shake.
