Nutella Hot Chocolate

The weather’s been topsy-turvy here in the Northeast this fall, but a couple of days ago, Old Man Winter pulled into town. If that’s the case where you are, today’s recipe is really going to hit the spot, though cold temperatures are in No Way a requirement for something as delicious as this Nutella Hot Chocolate. You can top it with whipped cream the way we did or with a big marshmallow or two and take a torch to it for something reminiscent of drinkable s’mores. You’ll thank me. And I thank Darcie for this scrumptious recipe – be sure to check out her post at the link.

Nutella Hot Chocolate

Serves 1
Allergy Milk, Tree Nuts
Meal type Beverage
Nutella Hot Chocolate — for those days when you need a little something extra to take the chill away.


  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 3 tablespoons Nutella
  • pinch salt


  • 1 shot Frangelico


In a small saucepan, heat the milk. Whisk in the Nutella and salt, stirring until well combined. Pour into a mug and top with whipped cream or marshmallows, then serve.
For a grown up twist on this hot cocoa, a shot of Frangelico would intensify the hazelnut flavor, or stir in some whiskey or other alcohol as desired.
