Nutella Hot Chocolate Recipe



Why You Will Love this Recipe

Nutella Hot Chocolate is a treat I am enjoying right now. This easy hot chocolate recipe has a delicious flavor and is perfect for cold days and evenings. 

Hot chocolate is a favorite cold weather drink and we make different versions every year. Creamy Nutella comes together with warm milk for a fantastic treat for Nutella lovers. 

This one is made extra special by adding some Nutella spread. Have you ever added Nutella to hot cocoa?  If you haven’t and you love Nutella, you must try this. I love all things Nutella and have made Nutella Cookies, Nutella Mug Cakes, and Nutella Pastries, but this is the easiest Nutella recipe ever.


This hot cocoa with Nutella recipe is super simple to make, and it makes a really special warm drink for winter. . It is hazelnut goodness in a mug! 

I suggest making this on the stove top as it just takes a few minutes and you want the chocolate to really warm up. But you can also make this in your slow cooker if you are making a big batch for a crowd. Everyone will love the Nutella flavor!
