How to make a Nutella hot chocolate

It’s no secret that I love Nutella which is probably the German in me coming through! I am sometimes surprised that I like it seeing I generally am not much of a chocolate eater, but there’s just something about it.  I’ve blogged about Nutella once before, too!

When I mentioned making a Nutella hot chocolate the other day I got a number of replies from people curious about it and I realised I couldn’t really sum it up well in just one tweet so decided to make a blogpost about it which also allows me to finally use the much underused cooking category of my blog. The image at the top is from @sahfenn who simply takes much better pictures than me!

Will I like a Nutella hot chocolate? Yes, if one or all of the following apply to you:

  • Do you love Nutella?
  • Do you love hot chocolate?
  • Do you love creamy hot chocolate?
  • Do you love hot chocolate that doesn’t feel heavy?

Word of advice before you’re attempting this – You will run out of Nutella and milk a lot quicker than you can imagine as it is seriously addictive.

How to make Nutella hot chocolate:

  1. Get a saucepan.
  2. Measure as much milk as you want to use. I generally go for 1/2 pint.
  3. Measure about a heaped tea spoon of Nutella and add to the milk.
  4. Use a whisk to completely stir the Nutella into the milk.
  5. Heat the milk whilst stirring vigorously to create more bubbles.
  6. Either bring the milk to a boil [which is great if you love the skin on your hot chocolate, like I do] or turn off the heat just before boiling.
  7. Stir for another 30 seconds to get as many bubbles as you possibly can.
  8. Pour the mixture into a cup.
  9. Wait at least four minutes before drinking. Trust me!
  10. Enjoy!

    I had Nutella, milk and a thirst. That really is nice.

    Quick way:
    Microwave mug of milk for about 90s.
    Stir in spoonful of Nutella
    Microwave for another 30s
    Stir some more.

    No mug fits properly in our microwave and things get too hot in there. And it’s not creamy enough!
