There's nothing better than a mug of hot chocolate after bracing the winter cold......I take that back, yes there is. Let's just say, I NEVER would've thought to use Nutella in hot chocolate and thanks to the interwebs, I was inspired to do so.
The hazelnut flavor from the Nutella really brings something extra special and I added some dark chocolate for a little more depth. I urge you to try this special version of 'hot chocolate'. I'm calling it Hot Nutella Kisses. This is sooooo good!!
When I said simple, I really meant simple lol.Serves 1 person
- 2-3 (or more) heaping tsp Nutella- 1 mug (6-8oz) milk- 1-3 (or more) Dark Hershey's Kisses* whipped cream* pinch of ground cinnamon(*=optional)
In a saucepan heat up a little bit of the milk and Nutella until pretty well combined. Add the rest of the milk. Should be hot, but not boiling. Add rest of Nutella and dark chocolate kisses. Whisk until all chocolate is melted.
Turn off heat, then continue to whisk rapidly until top is foamy.
Serve in your favorite mug with whipped cream and/or ground cinnamon. Enjoy!
