Creamy Nutella Hot Chocolate
Hi friends! It’s National Hot Chocolate Day! And for me, it’s a time to celebrate! We’re big fans of Hot Chocolate Recipes around here if you haven’t noticed. I love a good cup of coffee in the morning, but there’s nothing like ending a long winter day with a warm cup of cocoa. So on this day to celebrate all things hot chocolate we thought we’d throw another fan favorite into the mix – NUTELLA!
Nutella Hot Chocolate Ingredients
Nutella and chocolate is just one of my favorite combinations in the whole world! And if you’re looking for something just a little MORE special and indulgent to celebrate this sweet day then look no further! Here’s what you’ll need:
- Unsweetened chocolate
- Vanilla extract
How to Make Nutella Hot Cocoa
You’re going to simply combine all your ingredients – milk, cream, Nutella, chocolate, vanilla and salt – into a saucepan and let those flavors melt together into creamy goodness. It’s indulgent, yes! But who doesn’t want to treat themselves every once in a while! And if your kids are into hot cocoa (I have one who is a MAJOR fan), this would be a fun treat to whip up for the family!
Once the Nutella Hot Chocolate is ready, simply top with marshmallows or your favorite hot cocoa toppings and serve warm and delicious. Aren’t you ready to dive in?! I know I am! Happy National Hot Chocolate Day, my friends!
Tools Used to make this Recipe:
