The lovely Shaina recently pointed out that we here at The Family Kitchen have a thang for Nutella. Well, indeed we do! (Really, who doesn’t?!) Not only did Julie post an amazing sounding Nutella Swirl Banana Bread earlier today, but I’ve got yet another Nutella recipe to add to the mix:
NUTELLA HOT CHOCOLATE!
This drink will warm your bones through the chilly winter. And why not start making it on Halloween night? If it’s chilly by you, ditch the last pieces of candy for this rich, chocolatey drink to warm up after a long evening of trick-or-treating outside. It’ll satisfy as well as any chocolate bar.
This is so simple and sooooo good! I’ve tested a couple of variations—pick the one that best suits your mood.
Nutella Hot Chocolate
makes 1 cup
1 c milk
2 Tbsp Nutella
1. Combine milk and Nutella in a sauce pan over medium-low heat. Whisk until Nutella melts and milk gets hot.
Extra Rich Variation
Add 2 additional teaspoons Nutella and 1 tsp sweetened cocoa powder.
Add a cinnamon stick to the pot when making either the original or extra rich version. Once milk is hot, lower the heat and allow to simmer an extra 5 minutes.
