I have a bit of a Pinterest addiction. It wouldn’t be so bad, but I’m not doing nearly as many things as I’m pinning. One recipe (with many variations) that I’ve seen several times is Nutella Hot Chocolate. I think I had to stop myself from pinning it multiple times. I like hot chocolate, and I like Nutella, so in theory – this should be great.
One night, Molly (who loves Nutella more than anyone else in the family) said that she wanted hot chocolate, and I offered to make her and I Nutella hot chocolate instead. Yum!
I have seen a variety of recipes for this, so I just did some combining.
Nutella Hot Chocolate
- 2 - 5 Tablespoons Nutella For us, five was too sweet, but you can just adjust for yourself. We thought 3 - 4 was pretty perfect.
- 2 cups Milk
- A pinch or two of Cocoa Powder Optional and only if you use less Nutella
- Just add all of the ingredients into a saucepan and whisk until well mixed.
- Heat to desired temperature (and continue to whisk, as needed).
- If desired, top with whipped cream and/or sprinkles.
- Serve immediately or allow time to cool slightly.
One time, while heating the hot chocolate, I turned my head for a minute while it was already getting warm and it frothed up and almost "boiled" over the pan. Keep your eye on it. On the upside, that will also save you from ninjas sneaking up and taking it while you're not looking.

Umm…. This is awesome! I follow you on pinterest and I think I’m addicted to that site. I pin way more things than I even have time for. I will be trying this tonight.
I hope you enjoy it! It’s so tasty!
I made this and served it to my 3 year old son, 20 month old daughter, and 2 year old niece. They all loved it. My son doesn’t drink anything milk so this is a keeper.
So glad they liked it!
Because I too am addicted to Pinterest, I pinned this! Oh, and because my kids are crazy for nutella and hot chocolate – I can’t wait to spring this on them!!
I hope they love it!
Pinterest is such a time suck, isn’t it? At least it’s very inspiring. I’ve noticed that now that I’m into it, I spend less time on Facebook and Twitter.
Oh my! This looks amazing! My daughter was looking over my shoulders and is now begging me to make this right now! 🙂 Maybe we do need a treat this AM! 🙂
So, did you give it a try? If so, I hope you guys liked it! (I may have to make some again soon.)
