Nutella Hot Chocolate {Warm Up your Winter Cookbook}

Today I have a fun little recipe booklet for y'all. A couple weeks back I received a copy of "Warm Up your Winter" by Laura Powell. Laura is a good friend of mine, so I was delighted to have the opportunity to hop on her blog tour and review her latest mini cookbook. 

Warm up Your Winter is a 26 page collection of delightful Hot Chocolate and Cider Recipes to warm up your holiday. The weather here in North Texas is still pretty warm, but that doesn't stop me from enjoying my favorite hot drinks.

In the morning I have coffee, but when the evening rolls around I turn to to hot tea or hot cocoa to complete my night. It doesn't matter what time of year it is I just love something hot before bedtime.  

Warm up Your Winter is a mini cookbook filled with recipes like, Rich & Decadent Hot Chocolate, Frozen Hot Chocolate, Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate, Pumpkin Pie White Hot Chocolate, Hot Vanilla, Hot Caramel Apple Cider, and my new favorite Nutella Hot Chocolate pictured below.
Nutella hot chocolate is made with a chocolate hazelnut spread. This recipe is really easy to make and only r equires two ingredients (milk & Nutella). If you are a Nutella lover this is a must try recipe. Next on my to make list to make is the Frozen Hot Chocolate which is a frozen treat of your favorite classic hot chocolate. My kids will love that one.

I also plan on taking Laura's advice on making a Hot Cocoa Bar over the holidays with a few of the basic hot cocoas and adding an assortment of toppings. I have a triple bowl crock pot that would work perfectly. A hot cocoa bar is perfect for the up coming holidays when your house is filled with family and guests.

If you would like to find out more information about Laura Powell visit her blog, Real Mom Kitchen. You can also purchase Laura's latest cookbook on Amazon for $2.99 or go to Laura's blog for other places it can be purchased. 




Nutella Hot Chocolate

4 - cups whole or 2% milk
1/2 - cup Nutella Hazelnut Spread

Serve in mugs and top with marshmallows or whipped cream sprinkled with chocolate shavings. 


Servings: 4 

Cooks Note: This can be made ahead of time, cooled and stored in the refrigerator. Reheat on the stove or in the microwave in individual mugs. To microwave reheat each cup for 1 minute.

Normally hot chocolate is the easy one but a good mulled cider/cranberry juice or mulled wine is a nice thing too. They just aren't the norm.

My FAVORITE hot drink is my grandmas canned tomato juice. It is sooooo good when it is cold and windy outside. Heat it up until you see steam coming off of the top. Sprinkle a couple of shakes of salt and enjoy!@!

I have enjoyed the idea you presented of making it ahead of time and just having to heat it when wanted! That is a terrific idea - esp when family is coming and going at different times to have it ready for each!! Wonderful! Thank you! And the nutella -- fun all the way ;-)
