Boozy Nutella Hot Chocolate
Take your hot chocolate up a notch this year with a wonderfully boozy recipe featuring melted Nutella and topped with whipped cream.
- 1 1/2 cups milk
- 1/3 cup Nutella
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 4 ounces bourbon, Frangelico, cacao rum, or chocolate liqueur, optional
- Whipped cream or marshmallows & shaved chocolate, to top
- 1. In a pot over medium-high heat, bring the milk to a simmer. Add the Nutella, stirring until it has melted and become incorporated. Add the cinnamon stick and bring to a simmer.
- 2. Divide the bourbon between two mugs, if using (2 ounces per mug). Ladle the hot milk mixture into the mugs and serve with fresh whipped cream or marshmallows. You can toast the marshmallows on a foil-lined baking sheet under the broiler for 30 to 45 seconds, until golden (keep a close eye on them). Shave chocolate over marshmallows.
