Nutella Hot Chocolate [RECIPE]
We’re just over a month away from the official start of autumn and I couldn’t be happier.
My favorite season is autumn. I love the crisp mornings and leafless trees. I love the smells of pumpkin and cinnamon and crackling fires. Everything seems enveloped in beautiful colors and life slows down a little. I love listening to the crunch of leaves under my feet and apple picking and sitting on my porch with a steaming cup of hot cocoa.
I bought a big jar of Nutella a couple months ago and it’s been sitting in my pantry staring at me every time I open the door. I love Nutella, but wanted to try something different from having it with a bread-stick for breakfast.
So in celebration of the soon to arrive fall season, I decided to try to make hot chocolate using Nutella and what do you know? It ended up being absolutely delicious.
Nutella Hot Chocolate
- 1 cup of milk (I used organic vanilla soy, but this will work with regular milk too)
- 2 generous teaspoons of Nutella
Heat in saucepan, stirring until hot (keep an eye on this because you don’t want a bubbly burned mess) and Nutella melts into the milk.
Pour into a mug and top off with a marshmallow. I bet this would taste really good with a whole cinnamon stick placed in the mug too.
