Sweet Treat!

Considering it is coming up to winter or in my case an extension of an Irish summer because the weather has been terrible. Anyway I thought I would share one of my favourite drinks with you. It is really simple to make and is oh so comforting on a cold evening.

What you will need - Hazelnut Drink (or regular milk) 
                  1 Teaspoon of Nutella

I spotted this Hazelnut drink in Tesco recently and thought that would be amazing in hot chocolate and I was right it is gorgeous. I originally thought that a Hazelnut drink that might be a healthier option than milk but be under no illusion it is full of sugar probably the reason it tastes so yummy. 

Anyway I shall insult you with the instruction just incase any of you are like myself in that my cooking skill are in dire need of improvement so I never shy away from directions. 

You can choose to use Hazelnut drink or regular milk. If you are using regular milk you may need to add more Nutella depending on how sweet you like hot chocolate. The first time I used the Hazelnut drink I whacked in my normal two teaspoons of Nutella and found it way too sweet and believe me I have an extremely sweet tooth. 

Simple, pour a cup of Hazelnut drink in a pot and gentle heat it when it is luke warm add your tablespoon of Nutella and stir in. I find you actually need to whisk it in to incorporate it fully. 

The Result - It did not last very long on order for me to take some good looking pictures I just kept sipping at it. Sorry.

Have any of you tried Nutella hot chocolate? Did you like it? As a massive Nutella fan so I am converted and could never go back to regular hot chocolate!



  1. aaah it sounds amazing! I love love love sitting with a jar of nutella and a spoon, yum! I'm definitely craving nutella right now haha xx

    1. Its addictive isn't? :) Thank you for your comment xxx

  2. I've a milk allergy so never tasted Nutella I use chocolate nesquik in my soya milk and then heat in microwave for an instant hot drink. Have you tried Alpro Almond or the Vanilla? they are nice substitutes for moo milk :)

    1. p.s nesquik is milk free in case you were a little puzzled :)

    2. You have me giggling out loud with moo milk!! ;) I have tried the Almond milk (and my mum actually makes it) but it haven't seen the Vanilla one that sounds lovely! xxx I totally forgot there was milk in Nutella how annoying but the Nesquik also lovely and if you mixed it with the Hazlenut drink it might give it a nutella taste :) Thank you so much for your lovely comment and making me laugh xxx
