Our day 10 Advent offering is something hot and decadent for those cold winter days. What could be more comforting than a cup of drinkable Nutella? Like a soft cashmere sweater, this silky hot chocolate will envelop you in the sweet taste of luxury.
Nutella Hot Chocolate
Drinkable Nutella! Drinkable Nutella!
- 1 cup whole milk
- 3 Tbsp Nutella
- tiniest pinch salt
- whipped cream or marshmallows for serving
In a small saucepan, heat the milk. Whisk in the Nutella and salt, stirring until well combined. Pour into a mug and top with whipped cream or marshmallows, then serve.
For a grown-up twist on this hot cocoa, a shot of Frangelico would intensify the hazelnut flavor, or stir in some whiskey or other alcohol as desired. Keep it alcohol-free for the kiddos and serve with cookies after a day of playing out in the snow.
