Nutella Peppermint Hot Chocolate
Oh, we’re getting down with hot chocolate. Nutella Peppermint Hot Chocolate. Yeah, buddy! Who doesn’t love nutella? Wait, don’t answer that. If you don’t love nutella, I don’t want to hear it (hand in the face). I heart hot chocolate! Drinking it during the month of December is my holiday tradition. I combined my favorite hazelnut spread and some mint flavoring to give this warm drink a more sophisticated taste. The nuttiness from the nutella and the freshness from the mint makes this hot chocolate craveworthy. Trust.
2 cups of Milk
1/2 cup of Cream (half and half)
1 teaspoon of Peppermint or Mint flavoring
2/3 cup of Nutella (feel free to add more nutella, depending how rich you like your hot chocolate)
1/4 cup of Dark Chocolate Chips (Ghirardelli or any chocolate chips you have on hand)
In a small saucepan combine milk, cream, and mint bring to a boil. Once the milk is slightly boiling decrease the heat to a simmer. add in the nutella and chocolate chips and stir until chocolate is fully incorporated into the milk. Pour into a cup top with whip cream and crushed candy canes. Enjoy!
