recipe: Nutella cocoa for World Nutella Day
Mary Bilyeu | Contributor
I debated whether to make a cake and stir Nutella into the frosting, as Jeremy suggested, or whether to bake some cookies or try to devise some other sort of newfangled recipe.
But we all know that while baked goods and other treats made with Nutella are fabulous, really, all anyone actually needs is a jar and a spoon. So why complicate your life?
I decided to just prepare a simple cup of rich cocoa, and stir in some Nutella to make it even more seductively sublime.
But if you'd like to complement your cocoa with still more Nutella, here are some other recipes to choose from:
Nutella Cocoa (adapted from a recipe for Hershey's cocoa)
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
6 tablespoons Nutella
2 cups whole milk
whipped cream, for serving
Divide sugar, cocoa powder, and Nutella among two mugs. Heat the milk in a small saucepan until it's very hot and small bubbles appear around the edge. Slowly pour the milk into each mug, stirring with a fork to combine the ingredients well. Top with whipped cream, if desired.
Makes 2 very rich servings.
