Nutella Hot Chocolate

Hot chocolate is one of my favorite things to make & devour when it starts to get cold outside. I love the intense chocolate flavor it has when you make it from scratch & can add whatever you want into it! 

When I was at home on one of those cold days I was daydreaming new inventions that would be fun to make & this was one of them. Yes, I know I'm weird to daydream about interesting food combinations, but I am what I am. And hey, you're benefiting right?! So after thinking it up, I've made it a couple of times & I think the below ratios are the perfect combination. I wouldn't be surprised if you started seeing this pop up as a new drink at's just that good! Hey Starbucks, want to use my recipe? You know you want to! Just try a cup & you'll see how irresistible it is!

  • 6 cups whole milk
  • 2 cups half & half
  • 3/4 cup Nutella
  • 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate morsels
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 T vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch instant coffee (you don't taste it but it intensifies the chocolate flavor)

1. Bring milk and half & half to almost a boil. 

2. Turn heat off and whisk in sugar, vanilla and instant coffee until blended/dissolved. 

3. Whisk in Nutella until melted and part of the liquid completely. 

4. Whisk in chocolate morsels until completely melted. 

5. Pour into a thermos or your favorite mug and serve. 

Bon Appetit!
