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:
- Get a saucepan.
- Measure as much milk as you want to use. I generally go for 1/2 pint.
- Measure about a heaped tea spoon of Nutella and add to the milk.
- Use a whisk to completely stir the Nutella into the milk.
- Heat the milk whilst stirring vigorously to create more bubbles.
- 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.
- Stir for another 30 seconds to get as many bubbles as you possibly can.
- Pour the mixture into a cup.
- Wait at least four minutes before drinking. Trust me!
