Nutella Hot Chocolate


Nutella is one of those condiments I always have around the house; I alternate between periods of eating copious amounts of it, putting it on everything, and proclaiming it’s the best thing ever.
And then there are those other times when I’m indifferent to it, and it languishes in the cupboard for months.
Despite what the commercials suggest, I’ve never thought of it as healthy or good for me, it’s definitely not a ‘health food’ – all you have to do is look at the ingredients.

I’ve often thought about making my own; with roasted hazelnuts, cocoa powder, coconut milk and sugar – I’m a little hesitant it wouldn’t turn out as creamy, smooth and chocolaty.

Nevertheless, it’s okay to indulge now and then…

I recently discovered another use for Nutella – making hot chocolate, now why didn’t I think of that?
It’s a twist on the classic hot chocolate; a warm hot chocolaty drink with subtle hints of hazelnut.
It’s quite heavenly!
