With Fall approaching and the weather just beginning to cool down, people are excitedly digging out their sweaters and lining up to get the first Pumpkin Spice Latte of the year. This season, you can save the trip to Starbucks, skip the lines and save money. Make your own deliciously warm hot chocolate this year and enjoy it at home with your favorite fall sweater.
- 4 cups of skim milk
- 2 tablespoons of Nutella
- 2 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder
- 2 tablespoons of granulated sugar
Pour the milk into a saucepan and place over medium heat until warm and steaming. Then, add in the rest of the ingredients and whisk until combined. Continue to stir and bring to a gentle simmer, then take off the heat.
Now, if it is a cold day, you can decide to stop here and enjoy your enticing Nutella hot chocolate with the toppings of your choice, such as marshmallows and chopped hazelnuts. If the weather is warmer and calls for a refreshing cold drink, carefully pour the cooled hot chocolate into an ice cube tray and freeze until solid. Then, take the frozen cubes and put them straight into a blender and blend until smooth. You can have the delicious flavor of hot chocolate and beat the heat with an amazing milkshake at the same time!
