Nutella Hot Chocolate

Nutella is the flavour of my childhood. I like liked to spread it thick on hot toast, lick off the melted chocolate goodness and then eat the toast. Just thinking about it takes me back. My younger brother used to make Chocolate Spread Surprise sandwiches. This basically meant a Nutella sandwich with Nutella spread on both sides of each slice of bread.

We’re lucky we had our mum.

In my current WIP my protagonist makes a variety of delicious treats and I’ve decided to try them out (all in the name of authenticity of course). This Nutella Hot Chocolate comes from Cafe Delights and you can find the recipe by clicking the link. I should add that I’ve corrupted the original recipe – if I’m going to make a Nutella hot chocolate I might as well go with full fat milk and the evil white sugar I have in the pantry. I also left out the optional toppings, because that’s just added mess for my B1 and B2 to make.

Check out our efforts:

Nutella Hot Chocolate in saucepan.
Bubble, bubble, bubble
Hot chocolate in mug.
Yummy scrummy in my tummy!

Not surprisingly, B1 and B2 were big fans. I liked it too and would definitely make it again although probably with less (if any) sugar.

In case you missed it, the recipe for this can be found at  Cafe Delights. Whether hot chocolate is your thing or not, it’s a beautiful site and you should have a look.

Have you made this before? What did you think?
