Sweetness Overload: Nutella Hot Chocolate


The obsession is real. Very real. Now Nutella is in a liquid form that is guaranteed to make me sick because I will be gluttonous and drink it until I am sick. However, it is absolutely worth it. Go ahead and judge me, I'll wait.

So I blogged about this the other night and I know some of you have been waiting, so here she is: Nutella Hot Chocolate. Yep, yes, uh-huh ...taste just as fantastic as you are imaging. Whether it is a TV night, fire pit night, or just a sweet treat it will definitely hit the spot and cure any sweet tooth you may have.

Here is what you need to make this sweet nectar.
3-4 cups of Milk (depends on who all you are sharing with, or not)
1/2 cup of ghirardelli milk chocolate morsels, *perhaps more if you need to do quality control as you wait for the milk to warm up
1 tablespoon of Vanilla extract
2 heaping tablespoons of Nutella
Whip cream

--Heat up your milk, not to a boil as you do not want it to burn
--Wisk in the chocolate morsels in two parts so you can ensure they do not burn to the bottom      of the pan
--Add the Vanilla Extract while whisking
--Turn the heat to low & add one tablespoon of the Nutella, whisk to mix
--Add the final tablespoon of Nutella and make sure to keep whisking

Once the chocolate concoction is all smooth and melted together, pour yourself a cup of sugar hot chocolate, top it with some whip cream and enjoy!
