Creamy Nutella Hot Chocolate

Have you been thinking that you might enjoy taking your hot chocolate up a notch? If so, then you might want to give this creamy Nutella hot chocolate recipe a try! It’s magical and decadent!

I mean, seriously, you’ve got sweetened condensed milk, chocolate chips, and Nutella involved here. You won’t get this type of rich flavor from a powder hot cocoa mix, that’s for sure! (If you are not familiar with Nutella, it is a popular hazelnut spread with cocoa.)

Now don’t get me wrong, I am all for a good powder hot cocoa mix most of the time (pretty sure I have a few flavors of Stephen’s Gourmet Hot Cocoa in my pantry right now). But, homemade hot chocolate just has a special feel to it. Plus, it isn’t hard to make (you basically just melt it all together and heat it all up) and it tastes delicious if you have a good recipe.

So, if you’ve never made your own hot chocolate before (without the powder mix), get excited! You’re going to love this Nutella hot chocolate recipe.

A Word of Warning:

Before we get into the recipe I need to say this: I wouldn’t advise that you indulge in this Nutella hot cocoa every night. You’ll want to because it’s so tasty, but this sweet treat is better for special occasions. 😉

For example, it is perfect for after a fun winter family activity – like after a special sledding trip, walking around a light display downtown, watching or reading Polar Express, Christmas Eve or Christmas festivities, or even a fun snowball fight! Basically, if you’re outside getting cold, this Nutella hot chocolate is the perfect treat to warm you up.

We got this recipe from Amber. Thank you for sharing!

Enjoy Your Nutella Hot Chocolate

As you can see, we like to top our hot chocolate with mini marshmallows, but whip cream is just as delicious! If your sweet tooth is extra strong, you can even drizzle some chocolate syrup on top. Yum!
