did you see my video yesterday? i am currently obsessed with these nutella lattes i developed. if you read food blogs on a regular basis or are on pinterest you have probably heard of nutella hot chocolate. but, as i said yesterday, i sometimes need a little afternoon pick-me-up. so i figured i could doctor a nutella hot chocolate up a bit by adding espresso powder or a bit of starbucks via ready brew. (i have tried both by the way and both work just fine.)
i made mine the old fashioned way - on the stovetop - but you could certainly warm your milk up in the microwave if you are short on time but still craving chocolate/caffeine.
so, here's one of my christmas presents to you - the nutella latte recipe. make yourself a mug this weekend. you won't regret it. promise.
makes 1 medium size mug
1 cup whole milk
1/4 cup water
1/2 tsp via ready brew powder or espresso powder
2 rounded tsp nutella
pinch of salt
warm milk and water over medium heat. you want the pot to be steaming but not boiling. whisk in coffee and nutella. **this is the MOST important part!** lick the spoon as not to waste any of that nutella goodness. continue whisking until powder and nutella has dissolved. adjust heat as necessary to keep it from boiling. add a very small pinch of salt to bring out all the flavors, pour into a mug and top with marshmallows or whipped cream, if desired.
just double this recipe if you want to treat someone else to this indulgence. enjoy!
