Adult Hot Chocolate Made with Nutella and Fortified Spirits



From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite...Sometimes this is a tough job. I had to test this recipe over and over again to get the proportions just right for you. Obviously, I couldn't recommend the spirits used to spike the hot chocolate without first verifying they were compatible with its Nutella base. They are! If you are looking for a special bedtime or fireside drink, I think you might enjoy this one. It's special. Here's the recipe.

Adult Hot Chocolate with Nutella and Fortified Spirits...from the kitchen of One Perfect Bite

Ingredients:
1/3 cup Nutella
1-1/3 cups milk, divided use
2 jiggers spirits (i.e. Jamesons, Baileys, Frangelico Kahlua)
Garnish: Whipped cream and cocoa powder

Directions:

1) Place Nutella and 1/3 cup milk in small saucepan over medium heat. Whisk until blended.
2) Add reserved 1 cup milk, increase heat to medium-high, and whisk until hot and frothy. Pour into two 8-oz. coffee mugs. Pour 1 jigger (shot glass) of desired spirit into each glass and stir well. Top with heavy cream and sprinkle lightly with cocoa powder. Serve immediately. Yield: 2 servings.

June said...

Yum! Think we might have to test them all too before we decide on our favorite fortification.

Three-Cookies said...

Very tough job indeed, I feel sorry for you:)

Perhaps vodka will work as well since its neutral tasting. And because its neutral I suppose the amount can be increased, substantially...!

Sourkraut said...

Ooh, yum. This might be my Friday night treat to end a tiring, stressful week. Thanks for sharing!

From the Kitchen said...

Please clarify just how many bottles of Bailey's, etc. were used in the perfecting of this recipe. Thank you!

Best,
Bonnie

I LOVE nutella so this is going to be my perfect friday night beverage! What would we do without you mary :o) xx

Lucie said...

Ohh, Mary, this sounds delicious. Have you heard of Speculoos paste? They sell it pretty much everywhere here in France (there was even an article about it in this week's NYT) I can imagine hot speculoos milk with some amaretto...and then nutella hot chocolate!

That Girl said...

Nutella hot chocolate is a brilliant idea with or without the alcohol!

Karina said...

That was very kind of you to test this recipe for us until it was perfect! Can't wait to try this.

Joanne said...

well well well. I have a final exam today and this looks like the perfect way to cap it off!

Rachel said...

Oh, Mary...this looks like the most perfect drink to have tonight with my husband, after we put the kids to bed! I luckily don't have to be up for work at 4am tomorrow morning, so we were talking about relaxing tonight and I'm pretty sure I have Baileys and Kahlua--if not, it will be added to the list of things I need my husband to stop and get on his way home! I've never tried Nutella, but hear such great things about it!

Foley said...

Love these at night - have used schnapps too. Now, what kind of shape were you in after all the tasting to get it just right?? lol

ann said...

Mary, this looks delicious. It's a tough job but someone's gotta do it, Mary!

Valérie said...

This sounds so simple, but I can't wait to try it! Bless you for testing all that Nutella and spirits for us! :-)

Priya said...

GLENDA CHILDERS said...

I have nutella. I have heavy cream. But no fortified spirits in the house right now. Darn. Thanks for being willing to be the guinea pig for all of us.

Fondly,

Well Mary, if this was made with that amazing homemade nutella from the other day...you can serve me two mugs with spirited jiggers of your choosing...pretty please with whipped cream on top ;o)

Flavourful wishes,
Claudia

Susi said...

Mary, what a delightful hot chocolate concoction. With Nutella and Frangelico (my favorite) you really can't go wrong. Considering the colder temperatures and rain we are expecting over the weekend, this will be something I need to make :o) Thanks for sharing!

Leslie said...

Stephanie said...

Wow. I never thought to add Nutella to hot cocoa!! Genius! I'm a huge fan of spiked "adult" hot cocoa, too, so this fits the bill. These kinds of drinks are definitely one of the perks of colder weather. :-p

Wow. Simple and lovely for a cold winter evening. I think my kitchen needs to run several trials to make sure this is fit for sharing...

Reeni said...

Totally delectable Mary! What a nice treat for us! I have a brand new jar of Nutella too, just waiting for this.

Sweet And Crumby said...

I must have one now to start of the weekend! This looks fantastic.

What I wouldn't do to be able to have a yummy adult beverage like this one!

Les rêves d'une boulangère (Brittany) said...

I wouldn't have a problem testing that over and over ;)
Looks beautiful!

Eliana said...

This is one good looking hot chocolate. Love all the extra yummy flavors.

Sharon @ Fun and Life said...

You had me with the word 'Nutella' lol. I love this! Must give it a try! Baileys is my favourite too. So chocolate + Nutella + Baileys is a REAL treat for me! Will probably cut out the other "fortified spirits" ;).

Oh and thanks for dropping by my blog :).

Foodycat said...

I never even thought of turning nutella into a hot drink! How gorgeous.

Tiza said...

Ooooh...Nutella! I have to try this!!

Elaine said...

This would definitely warm you up on a cold winter's night.

MarieElizabeth said...

I appreciate you going to all the trouble of trying out this recipe until it was perfect. :) I will have to try it to confirm your results. Thanks for stopping by my blog this week.

Liz said...

At the end of every jar of Nutella I swear I won't buy another - and now another reason to go out and get one - this has to be tried out immediately!

Letizia Golosa said...

You had me at "Nutella"!!! What a great combintion of flavors! I will try this for sure!

My Little Space said...
