It’s not secret that I love Nutella. It’s a little bit of an unhealthy obsession. I realised it had gotten a little out of hand and I would volunteer to make dinner just so I could stand in the kitchen and eat it out the tub with a spoon. For christmas I got 8 personalised tubs…. Yep. Eight. Now as much as I would like to eat all those tubs, in secret, with a spoon… we all know thats just wrong. But using Nutella in a recipe doesn’t really count does it? I’m pretty sure I don’t need any more excuses to hide in the dark at 2am eating it from the jar.
So, with it being christmas, winter and all things festive. Lets make the BEST hot chocolate.
You will need some hot milk & your favourite cup, a nice big spoonful of Nutella and stir stir stir… thats it! It’s almost too easy. Of course, get adding those marshmallows and maybe a little candy cane or cinnamon sprinkles if you want to go super festive. I use an ice cube tray and pop in some Nutella with a spoon and freeze it for a few hours, add some marshmallows and simply pop those in your hot chocolate when friends visit over the holidays, or even better… as gifts!
You can also melt it in using a little milk pot on the stove. You can stir and add to get the perfect ‘thickness’ for you.
It’s such a cosy treat for the kids after cold & rainy school run.
It’s a winner in our house!
