Mmmm, Nutella. Nectar of the gods, people.
Which is why I was so insanely excited to realize just how easy is to make the thickest, richest, creamiest hot chocolate ever with it.
Take slightly less than 1/4 cup of Nutella. Add it to a large mug of milk (I use almond milk which is healthier and gives an even deeper flavor, but regular milk would also work). Pour the mixture into a small saucepan, and heat on medium-low, stirring, until the Nutella dissolves and blends in.
Pour back into the mug and that’s it!! You can also add cinnamon, but really, this is so rich it doesn’t need any additives.
Feel free to play with the amount of Nutella to make it more or less sweet, but this is easily some of the best hot chocolate I’ve had – layers of rewarding richness. Make it for yourself, make it for your kids (just not every day, because hell no this isn’t healthy), and enjoy this perfect winter indulgence!

I’ve made a Nutella Latte before, and its basically the same idea, although I use a steam wand to blend the milk and Nutella together instead of waiting for it to melt. Simply add a double shot of espresso and you are set!
oh, delicious! I’m going to try that! 🙂
