 Hot Chocolate, Nutella, Marshmallows, Home made Hot ChocolateNutella-Marshmallow Hot Cocoa. Yum Yum. Just the sound of hot cocoa on a cold winter day makes your heart sing, no? I don’t crave hot cocoa often, but when I do, I want it creamy and thick and with a very satisfying lingering taste.

Me and my little one love marshmallows. Every day after dinner, he gets one as a treat.., only if he finishes up his dinner. We like our marshmallows in ice-creams, cookies, and brownies. And we especially love marshmallows in the hot cocoa.

So far, I have been making hot cocoa with the Ghirardelli hot cocoa mix. And it’s supreme yum. But for those late night cravings when you don’t have any hot cocoa mix handy, you can always walk to the pantry, grab the Nutella jar and mix yourself up this yummy Nutella-Marshmallow Hot Cocoa.

If you want your Nutella-Marshmallow Hot Cocoa skinny or low-fat, then use skimmed milk. If you want Nutella-Marshmallow Hot Cocoa dairy free, then go for almond milk. There won’t be much difference in taste if you go for skimmed milk or almond milk. It will still make you happy.

Since I like mine super creamy and rich; I used ¼ cup of cream with ¾ cups of regular milk to give that special wintery feeling.

This Nutella-Marshmallow Hot Cocoa will make you cozy and comfortable on a crisp winter day or on a long chilly winter evening. Just light up that fireplace, make yourself this steamy cup of Nutella-Marshmallow Hot Cocoa and curl up with a book. For me, that’s the best way to spend a long and cold winter night.

As you sip on, the creamy marshmallows would turn to a thick frothy cream, making this Nutella-Marshmallow Hot Cocoa, extra delicious. Savor each sip. Add your favorite nuts for some crunchiness. I skipped it because I like mine as-is: Frothy. Warm. Cozy. Creamy

I’m scrappy, weird and goofy. I’m a snob when it comes to a LOT of things.., Mainly – coffee, wine and chocolates. I laugh loud and yell louder. I run fast, but walk slow. I love walking long walks with a hot mug of coffee held tight between my hands. I have lonely eyes and a kind heart. I forgive but rarely forget. I remember the silliest of things and forget important matters. I love to run, read, cook and entertain. I draw inspirations from anything and everything aesthetic. There are numerous people who have and still continue to enrich my life in many good ways. I will remain indebted to them – Always. My dad is my biggest fan when it comes to cooking. I could see his eyes light up every time I serve something. My mom’s agility and affectionate nature that reflects on her food is something I’m still trying to master. Travel fascinates me amongst other things. Leave me in Venice and I would get lost in its timeless beauty – The canals. The piazzas. The art. The espresso. Leave me in NYC and I would tirelessly walk the length and breadth of the city (after all, There is always something open 24 hours a day). Through this blog, I am hoping to bring in my passion and love for a few things – Cooking, Travel, Kids, Coffee, Clothes and in the interim learn more myself. Hope I am able to do justice to my PASSION.
