Tasty Tuesday: Nutella Hot Chocolate

I had you at Nutella, didn't I? 

Yeah, I'm pretty sure you could add Nutella to just about anything and it would be better.

Well, maybe not spaghetti. Although, ever since watching Elf for the first time a couple years ago, Jake insists on eating syrup on his spaghetti. And the one time that he tried it (since he was sitting with my dad while we were all at a restaurant), he actually liked it. In fact, I'm not surprised that my dad let him. Not only does he let the grandkids do all sorts of crazy things, he's the one who will take a swig out of the pure maple syrup jug at the house.

But I digress . . . on to the drink!

 Four ingredients. That's all it takes to make one delicious cup o' chocolate.

 Dump it all in the pan - proper proportions, of course.

 Whisk it up.

Once it's hot, pour it in a mug, top it with whipped cream, and enjoy!

This is so super simple to make. And tastes amazing! Come on, a chocolate and Nutella drink??? You have to try it!

Yeah . . . it's that good.

Nutella Hot Chocolate  (adapted)
2 cups milk
1/3 cup Nutella
2 tablespoons cocoa 
1/8 teaspoon salt

In a small sauce pan over medium heat, whisk all ingredients together until well blended and hot.
Pour in a cup and top with whipped cream.

Whipped Cream
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
1 tablespoons sugar
1/4 tsp vanilla extract

1. Place a medium bowl and your beaters from your electric mixer in the freezer for 10 minutes (this helps the whipped cream stiffen faster.)
2. Pour all ingredients into the chilled bowl and start to beat. Start off on low and gradually work your way up to high until it is the consistency of whipped cream. (Don’t over-beat, or you'll have a repeat of THIS.)

  1. I've never had Nutella...heard about it, but it's so expensive. You're breaking me down, though - hot chocolate is my guilty pleasure, and I HAVE to try this! ;)

  2. Sales & coupons - that's my secret! It is sooo good though, that I just may pay full price if I had to (and I never pay full price for anything!) :)
