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
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
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.
