My family eats a lot of Nutella. I keep at least a couple jars of this chocolate hazelnut spread in the pantry at all times. It has become a household staple we use for sandwiches. My kids love Nutella as much as peanut butter. It’s an easy snack that tastes so good on bread, apples and even all by itself. We also eat Nutella Banana sandwiches. And now, thanks to this homemade hot chocolate, we have a new way to enjoy Nutella. I’m sure you’ll agree Nutella makes a delicious hot cocoa drink. Check out the simple directions below.
The first time I made Nutella Hot Chocolate, I was surprised at how creamy it turned out. Nutella dissolves easily and the end result was hot chocolate that tasted at least as good if not better than gourmet hot cocoa mixes. I used 2% milk to make my hot chocolate. If you use 1% or skim, it may be less creamy. Use whole milk for ultimate richness.
We love to drink hot chocolate in the wintertime, and using Nutella is an unexpectedly new way to make it. Try it and let me know what you think! I usually buy Nutella at Costco or Sam’s Club for the lowest prices, but Amazon has good deals on Nutella, too.
