It’s that time of year. My favourite season (despite the looming loooong winter). Fall. Full of beautiful colours, sunshine, crispness in the air, boots and scarves, and hot drinks. I don’t usually post any recipes on here because let’s be honest, I don’t do much creative cooking, but this is a good one. Easy and sooooo delish. Ready for it? Nutella hazelnut hot chocolate.
Mind blown, right?
Okay so I love hot chocolate (who doesn’t?). And I love nutella. A lot. Like eat the jar straight up with a spoon a lot. I can safely say that nutella was my comfort food of choice throughout University.
So here is what you need:
-1 cup of milk
-2 tablespoons of Nutella (or some kind of hazelnut chocolate spread)
-Shaved chocolate or cinnamon
There are two ways of doing this. The lazy way, which is obviously what I did: Microwave the milk until it is hot (usually 2 minutes or so) and then stir in the nutella with a spoon. It dissolves really quickly when the milk is hot enough.
Or the more profesh way, which would be to bring the milk to a simmer on the stove and whisk together with the nutella.
The amount of nutella you add really depends on how strong you want the hot chocolate to be. Basically just add until it reaches the level of chocolate-y-ness you want.
Then, top it off with some whipped cream and cinnamon (or chocolate shavings), and you get this cup of deliciousness.
