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.

Just trying to keep posts quick this sees, as I know everyone is busy around the holidays.

Merry Christmas!
