This is a great twist on the regular hot chocolate – Nutella Hot Chocolate. It is rich and creamy, very easy to make.

I love drinking hot chocolate in the winter, so I have a few different ways of making it and I find this one to be the easiest. It only takes 5 minutes to make, too. Of course, I want to remind you that Nutella is a hazelnut spread and I love hazelnuts, so this is a perfect way to add this flavor to my drink.

This Nutella Hot Chocolate would be a great addition to breakfast on Christmas morning and of course a great way to keep warm.

A great way to warm up from the inside out and it could easily substitute a light dessert. Even Santa would be happy if you leave a cup of this hot chocolate for him!

You can drink it as it is, or add some whipped cream (yes!), decorate with crushed peppermint candy, cocoa powder or toffee bits. A couple drops of peppermint extract will make this drink smell a lot more like Christmas!

I often use equal parts whole milk and half and half, to make this Nutella hot chocolate extra creamy, but you can use whatever you prefer.
