Hot Chocolate on a Hotter Summer Night


I’ve got a new (and yummy) recipe for you all to try – Nutella Hot Chocolate.

I do realize it’s the middle of summer and was 95° most of yesterday, but there’s just something comforting about hot chocolate on a dark, stormy night when you’re home alone and snuggled up in bed.

Colby and I spent most of our Saturday napping and trying to beat the heat. I also stayed entertained by snapping shots of the several poses that Colby sleeps in when he naps.

We were both like that until about 9 PM, and that’s when it started storming – lightning, thunder, monsoon rain, the works.

So anyway, back to my hot chocolate recipe. I pinned this one a while back but it’s been so warm that I forgot about it. Last night seemed like the perfect chance to try it out.

And trust me guys, it is totally worth it.

Hot Chocolate with Nutella

Nutella Hot Chocolate

  • 1 cup of milk
  • 2 big spoonfuls of Nutella
  • pinch of cinnamon
  • whipped cream
  • mini marshmallows

Pour 1/4 cup of the milk into a saucepan on medium-low heat. Add the Nutella and stir until blended, then slowly stir in the remaining milk. Add a pinch of cinnamon and stir, letting set until hot and a layer of froth forms. Pour the mixture into a mug and then add whipped cream and mini marshmallows.

Do you have any twist on the traditional hot chocolate that you drink?
