Nutella Hot Chocolate

  • Author: Ali
  • Cook Time: 5 minutes
  • Total Time: 5 minutes
  • Yield: 1 cup 1x


A simple combination of Nutella and milk make the yummiest hot chocolate!


  • 4 cups plain milk (dairy or plant-based)
  • 1/2 cup Nutella
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • optional toppings: marshmallows, whipped cream, chocolate shavings


  1. Heat the milk. Heat milk in a small saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until it almost reaches a simmer. (We want the milk to be steaming hot, but avoid boiling.)
  2. Add Nutella. Add in the Nutella and salt and whisk until completely combined.
  3. Serve. Remove from heat. Serve warm, garnished with any of your favorite toppings, and enjoy!

  1. made this over the christmas break, but added another ingredient, a shot of Baileys goes great with this drink!

  2. That looks AMAZING!!!!!!!!

  3. You are on a roll with these awesome Nutella recipes!

  4. The top of this is so perfect!

  5. That is genius! Thanks for sharing :)

  6. I love it. We used to do it when we were younger with my brothers. It started to not left any Nutella in the empty jar. We heated the milk, poured it in the jar and shook it until all the Nutella was dissolved. That’s funny cause I did it the other for my bf that never tasted it ( Nutella hot cocoa). And now he keep asking me to do it over and over again…

  7. I don’t care if it’s 82° here today, I am SO making this!

  8. couldnt you make your own Nutella? you know hazelnuts and coaco and honey?

  9. I have been making this for ages, but I do it to use up the “dregs” of Nutella that get stuck in the jar. I add an extra tablespoon (or more – more Nutella is always better!) of Nutella to the jar, then heat 6-8 oz. of milk in the microwave. I pour the milk into the Nutella jar, put the lid on tightly, and shake it like crazy. Then I pour the “hot chocolate” into a mug and enjoy. It’s easy and delicious, and it cleans the jar out really well so there’s no waste :)

  10. Can we make these and refrigerate them afterward and serve it cold as nutella ICED chocolate? will the nutella sink?

  11. If you have a Trader Joe’s nearby, cookie butter tastes amazing in this too! Thanks for the recipe, this is absolutely my new favorite hot chocolate recipe!

  12. YUMMERDOOS! Another idea to make it more of am adult drink, add some Frangelico ( also hazelnut

  13. Love this! It’s perfect for a windy/cold winter day. I added some mint extract to freshen things up a bit, and it tasted wonderful! Thank you for sharing this recipe to us.
