Tasty Delights-- Nutella Hot Chocolate!


Tasty Delights and Dazzling Disasters is all about playing in the kitchen and having some fun.

I'll share my delights or my disasters. Yall feel free to join in and create your own posts, share your favorite recipes, what have you. 


Alright so this may just be my favorite hot chocolate ever. 
I saw someone online mention using Nutella to make hot chocolate but completely forgot to mark the page. If it was you, thanks! It's awesome!

I had a little craving and decided to give it a go. And oh it's really and absolutely delicious!
It's totally ruined me for any other hot chocolates. lol



Add milk and nutella (or any chocolate hazelnut spread) to a heavy sauce pan.


Whisk to combine then heat on medium/low.


Aaaannnd you're done. Bliss in a cup!

This is some of the best hot chocolate I've had and I'll definitely be making it again.
It's very rich and has a lovely hazelnut flavor.

[edit] Someone on FB asked about heating this in the microwave. It's doable but the nutella and milk don't combine as nicely in the microwave. If it's your only option go for it but a little extra time on the stove is worth it in my opinion :)

What's your hot chocolate trick? Do you have a favorite recipe?
Think you'll try this one?

I'm a hot chocolate junkie so I'd love to hear how you like it :)

  2. *checks cupboard* Damn it, I'm out of Nutella. And I was sooo craving this. *SIGH* I guess regular hot chocolate will have to do until I get to the store. Looks yummy, though!

    Enjoy!

  3. Can you believe I've never had Nutella? I know..... GASP! I love Hazelnut though. I love the Hazelnut flavoring in my coffee and I'm sure this will be just as tasty. Thank you for the recipe for it.

    1. Oh my goodness. Leah you are gonna LOVE it. It's hazelnut/chocolate perfection. It's so good on fresh bakery bread or, um, by the spoonful too I'm sure. Not that I'd EVER do that ;)

    1. Oh Nutella on ice cream sounds really good too! Hope you enjoy the hot chocolate version. I wiped out a jar last week when we were hitting the 40s every nice. It was wonderful :)
