Nutella Hot Chocolate

Nutella Hot Chocolate

Velvety smooth and creamy, decadently rich and luscious, this hazelnutty hot chocolate is the ultimate comforting hug in a mug.

There are certain times when the world seems to be a little tough and a little sad, and it can be hard to know how exactly you can help someone you love who is going through a tough time. A hug and a cuddle as well as a shoulder to cry on are all ways to help but on one cold winters night whilst comforting a friend I needed extra reinforcements. Whilst rummaging in the kitchen looking for the usual cheering up goodies like chocolate and ice-cream, I suddenly had a hankering for hot chocolate as it was freezing that night, and as I was gathering the ingredients I saw the box of Ferrero Rocher’s that my friend had brought and the jar of Nutella shining out at me next to my jars of chocolate chips. Now knowing that she was also a Nutella fanatic, I knew this was the reinforcement I needed, to show her that everything will be ok, and an ordinary hot chocolate got turned into the most indulgent and lush drink imaginable.

Rich dark and sweet milk chocolate chips were first melted in cream and milk, and then followed by enough scoops of Nutella so that there could be no misunderstanding of who the star ingredient was. The hot chocolate was then finished off with a pinch of salt to bring out the flavours and a little cornflour for velvet thickness and served with a Ferrero Rocher on top (I was after all going all out!). This Nutella hot chocolate did make her forget her troubles for a little bit!  This hot chocolate will give you the biggest cuddle, warm you from your head to your toes and straight to your heart and will make you feel like everything will be ok. It really is that powerful, if you are a Nutella lover!

Warning: This hot chocolate is so rich and luxurious you can only drink it in small amounts, either in espresso cups or small mugs. BUT if the utter scrumptiousness of this drink makes you want a large mug, you go for it! who am I to judge, as I have already been there and have had that large mug of Nutella hot chocolate!
