Nutella Hot Chocolate
You’ve had Nutella in a sandwich, in cookies, and in frosting, but have you ever had Nutella Hot Chocolate? Warm, rich, and comforting, this silky-smooth cocoa is perfect on a chilly winter day!
Here in New England, the temperature is plummeting, and I can’t help but crave hot chocolate when I’m cold. Thanks to this indulgent recipe, keeping cozy has never been tastier!

For the record, the powdered mix doesn’t compare to chocolatey-hazelnut Nutella Hot Chocolate. Plus, if you run out of the store-bought stuff, a steaming cup of homemade cocoa will hit the spot.
After all, is there ever a time when you don’t have Nutella in your pantry?
How To Make Nutella Hot Chocolate:
To make Nutella Hot Chocolate, heat milk, heavy cream, Nutella, vanilla, and dark chocolate chips in a saucepan. Whisk the mixture until the chocolate and Nutella melts and then pour into mugs.
Top with whipped cream and don’t be shy about adding marshmallows (try these homemade ones!) and other garnishes.
For a fun family-friendly party, you can even set up a DIY cocoa bar. Let guests add their own candy cane stirrers, chocolate shavings, cinnamon, peanut butter sauce, caramel sauce, candies, and sprinkles!
A note to parents: the kiddos will love curling up with a toasty mug of this Nutella-laced cocoa. (This is especially true if you let them add their own toppings.)
In fact, this decadent recipe reminds me of one of my favorite lines in The Polar Express. The main character recalls his train ride, saying: “we drank hot cocoa as thick and rich as melted chocolate bars.”
(I’m pretty sure they served this recipe on that train!)
This winter, whip up a batch of Nutella Hot Chocolates for the kids, for company, or just for yourself. It’s an irresistible treat that that takes your favorite chocolate hazelnut spread to a whole new level!
