It seems today is World Nutella Day and as I didn't want to be left out of the fun, I decided to concoct a little something using the famous hazelnut spread. Our favorite way to enjoy Nutella is usually to spread it on some hot crèpes, roll them up and eat way too many! But since I didn't have time to make crèpes today, I thought I could make a Nutella Hot Chocolate.
It worked very well. The Nutella is sweet enough that this doesn't need any extra sugar and a half teaspoon or so of instant espresso powder doesn't hurt either. Perfect for a cold afternoon, knitting, reading or... doing laundry... Whatever fun things come your way! :)
Nutella Hot Chocolate
1 cup milk
1 tbsp Nutella
1/2 tsp instant espresso powder
In a small saucepan, over medium heat, whisk all three ingredients together until well combined, warm and frothy. If it's too sweet, add a little more milk. Serve in your favorite mug. Enjoy!
