Ultimate Hot Chocolate

Pin It

Excuse the quality of the picture.  The taste?  Out of this world! That is the problem when you have kitchen windows facing North!  I know! I barely get sun, and when I do, I get too much sun.  Ugh!!

Okay, okay, back to the hot chocolate!  I know there are many versions of this hot chocolate on the web, however, this is my kids favorite ever.  Mind you it would of been 'PERFECTO' had I still had the "whipping cream" that I had bought over the weekend.  I don't know about your children, but mine?  Well, I have this "whipping cream monster" you see.  She secretly hides somewhere in the house, in great anticipation of me leaving the kitchen...
Then when I do, she gleefully scoots to the kitchen, opens up the refrigerator, and proceeds to squirt all the whipping cream directly into her mouth, yes, yes she does.  So when mom "needs" the whipping cream, all I get is that gooey little liquid that barely oozes out of the canister.  Does anyone else have this problem?  *Sigh*

So, just imagine there is the marshmallows, then the whipping cream, and finally the chocolate sprinkles, well, just because they look pretty and stuff!

Ready for this very simple yet delicious recipe?  Here we go;

Ingredients for 2 mugs:
1 tbsp Nutella spread (or your favorite hazelnut spread)
2 tbsp your favorite hot chocolate mix (not packets)
1/3 cup mini marshmallows
Hot water
*optional, but highly recommended* - whipped cream and chocolate sprinkles

-Using  your favorite mug add the 1 tbsp of Nutella spread into the bottom of your mug.

-Add a little bit of hot water and stir to thin out the spread.  

-Add in your hot chocolate mix, and stir with the hot water and Nutella.

-Fill with the rest of the hot water to your preferred taste.  

-Add in your marshmallows.

-Top with whipped cream and sprinkles.

Take your first sip, SIGH and enjoy!! ♥

Till next time!

  1. Ooooh that sounds good! If my dog had opposable thumbs, we'd have a serous whipped cream criminal in our house too!
