This was perfect for today because it is cold, rainy, and blustery. Hot chocolate sounded so good.
I stumbled on this recipe and couldn't believe it. Nutella hot chocolate? Seriously? I could eat Nutella straight from the jar, but making hot chocolate with it? Swoon!! And, it is a 2-ingredient recipe. I had to try it!
Nutella Hot Chocolate:
1 cup hot milk
2 tablespoons Nutella*
I warmed the milk in the microwave for about 1-1/2 minutes (you want to make sure it doesn't boil), then stirred in the Nutella a tablespoon at a time. I tasted it to see if it needed any sugar, and it was just right. No additional sugar was needed.
This definitely rates high on the wow factor!
*I've heard you can substitute the Jif Chocolate PB, but I have not tried it.
