I have always loved this Nutella Hot Chocolate recipe and I can still remember the first time it occurred to me to make not just hot chocolate but Nutella hot chocolate. It was the middle of winter and we’d had a huge snowstorm – over 14 inches and counting. The grocery store wasn’t going to happen anytime soon and while I’d planned for this big storm and we had plenty of food – I didn’t plan on any sweets to get us through.

So I looked through our cupboards and spied the Nutella. It just happened to be sitting right next to the cocoa and the thought occurred to me to make some hot chocolate out of it. Then I looked back at the Nutella and thought…you guessed it…”What if I made some Nutella Hot Chocolate??” One of the greatest ideas I’ve ever had :)

So I put some in a pan and added some milk. Heated it up and oh, my-lanta – it was just as heavenly as I’d imagined it would be. My first batch of Nutella Hot Chocolate had a bit too much milk which, thankfully, adding another tablespoon or two of Nutella fixed that problem pretty quickly. Which only produced more of the Nutella Hot Chocolate so who was I to complain?

Since that cold and blustery snowstorm (we ended up with over 18 inches!) I’ve made this Nutella Hot Chocolate countless times. These are now the ratios I always use and it’s always delicious every time. Almost makes me wish there was a snowstorm coming!

Yield: 2 servings
Prep Time: 1 minute
Cook Time: 6 minutes
Total Time: 7 minutes


  • 2 – 3 Tablespoons Nutella
  • 1 1/2 cups milk, I like to use Almond Milk but any milk will do


  1. Place ingredients in a small saucepan and heat until steaming hot. Whisk vigorously until frothy and serve.
  2. (I sometimes put freshly whipped cream and chocolate shavings for presentation but the hot chocolate is so rich and creamy on its own that it really doesn’t need it).

  1. Lesley, can it be true?!! A fabulous blogger like yourself, yet you've never had Nutella? We were destined to cross paths! ;-)

    Michelle, you will LOVE it!! It's so easy and so yummy – one of my favorites!

  2. What a great idea! I love nutella on toast, crackers, etc. but never thought of it for hot chocolate! I'd better get a move on – it's starting to get warmer outside and hot cocoa season may be passing.

  3. I am embarassed to admit I am one of THOSE people who have never tried Nutella. And I lived in Italy where it's a household staple! Your pictures inspired me though. I will have to pick some up soon.

  4. OMG – I have this in my pantry – love it – but I never knew you could make hot chocolate out of this – what a quick fix for the late nite pantry raid – GREAT idea – thanks!!!

  5. That looks and sounds delicious! Love the blog, by the way. I wandered my way over here from The Left Over Queen's forum. :D

  6. Oh how I love Nutella … any way I can get it. One of my favorite uses for it as a filling for crepes. So, so good. Brilliant idea to use it for hot chocolate. Yum!

    I've left a little something for you on my blog today. :)

    Have a delicious weekend!

  7. I haven't had Nutella in years – I'm adding it to the next shopping list…..this looks too good to pass up. Thank you for sharing, and right now my morning coffee seems quite lacking!

  8. I'm in 100% agreement!! Everything would be better with nutella. When I was 8 and visiting family in Europe I was flabbergasted (but delighted), to see that my cousins ate fresh bread with butter annnd nutella on top. Soooo gooood!

    Unfortunately, I can't keep a jar in the house cuz I'll eat it in less than a week. No nutella control!!

  9. I honestly have never tried Nutella. Frankly, the name is not that inviting. At one point I was told that it was popular on the east coast of the US; now I will have to see if they carry it here in MN.

    Thanks for this blog – I have had fun!

    1. Hi Steve! I never really thought about it, but you're right, the name doesn't sound that great. I hope you try it though…it's really quite something! So glad you like the blog – thanks!!
