RECIPE: Nutella Hot Chocolate

Nutella Hot Chocolate

mug of hot cocoa on wooden table with spoon full of nutella

3 Tablespoons Nutella
12 oz Milk or dairy replacement (I bet almond milk would be a great sub)
2 Tablespoons Sweet Ground Chocolate
1 tiny pinch of sea salt
2 Tablespoons Sugar (or equivalent)
Whipped Cream (canned or fresh)

How to:
In a small sauce pan over medium low heat, heat the milk until steamy. Whisk in the cocoa powder, salt and sugar. Heat until the cocoa powder is blended. Add the Nutella and keep whisking until smooth. It takes a little longer than you might expect. Keep lowering the heat if you find the milk getting too hot or bubbly. You don’t want to burn this and then have to start all over again.

Pour into your favorite mug and top with fresh (or canned) whipped cream. Snuggle up on the couch or in front of the fireplace and enjoy!
