Homemade hot chocolate! It’s been a favorite of mine since I was a kid and today I am sharing my favorite homemade Nutella hot chocolate recipe.

About a year ago, we visited Chicago where we had hot chocolate from the world’s first Nutella Cafe. Since then, I’ve been in love with the rich and delicious taste of Nutella based hot chocolate.

This hot chocolate is simple to make and perfect for the Christmas season. I’m sure you will enjoy it.

    This looks sooooo good! It’s our tradition to make hot chocolate on Christmas Eve while watching a Christmas movie and waiting for Santa to come. Max is totally into Nutella right now so we may try this recipe this year! Thank you!
