Nutella Hot Chocolate

Posted by

This hot chocolate was inspired by the phrase, “Necessity is the mother of all invention.” I ‘needed‘ something sweet, but didn’t have enough sugar to bake anything. It was cold and snowy outside, which made driving to the grocery store out of question. The solution? This simple and decadent hot chocolate. It satisfied my sweet tooth and warmed me up!

Nutella Hot Chocolate

8 oz unflavored, unsweetened almond milk
2 teaspoons Nutella
2 teaspoons cocoa powder
1 teaspoon sugar
soy whip (optional)

*Heat milk on medium low. Whisk in nutella, cocoa, sugar until fully incorporated and cocoa is warm. Top with soy whip and dust with powdered cocoa.

P.S…. On my ‘to do’ list for 2011 … making homemade vegan nutella!
