"Damn it's Cold Outside" an ADULT Nutella Hot Chocolate with Whipped Cream

Pin It Now!

Oh Boy Hot Chocolate....

But not just any hot chocolate, this is a simple, fast version, only 2 ingredients (not counting the whipped cream that I will get to in a second), comes together in minutes and is LOADED with the unique flavors of that Hazelnut infused Chocolate spread... The legendary Nutella!

BUT WAIT... There's even MORE...

WHISKEY and CINNAMON SCHNAPPS!  That's right, the kiddee vesion of hot chocolate gets a Jack Daniel's upgrade.  Add a little seasonal Cinnamon and you have something really warming to your heart and soul!

I did top this off with a dollop of fresh made whipped cream.  Believe it or not, but there is a recipe for a better whipped cream (see below).  Just a little sweeter, and best of all, just a little bit stiffer, with a secret ingredient that makes the whipped cream more stable, making it stay that beautiful consistency longer, even when left out on the counter for an hour or more.

It's been cold outside recently... Snow, ice... conditions perfect for a warm blanket, overstuffed chair, a good book and a cup of Hot Chocolate.  Why not make the cup something special?  This will warm your soul after that walk gets shoveled!

Enjoy.  Keep scrolling down for the easy to follow recipe for the adult chocolate, as well as the whipped cream secret.  Pssst... It sure does help if you have a stand mixer...

OK, Here's What I Did...

"Damn it's Cold Outside" an ADULT Nutella Hot Chocolate with Whipped Cream

  • 1-1/3 Cup Whole Milk
  • 1/3 Cup Nutella
  • 1 Ounce Jack Damiel's Whiskey
  • 1 Ounce Cinnamon Schnapps
    1 Cup Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 1/3 Cup Powdered Sugar
  • 1 tsp white Karo Corn Syrup
Mixing Directions
  1. Over low heat, in  a small pot, mix the milk and the Nutella,  Stir until combined
  2. Heat until there is a steam coming from the pot without boiling the milk.
    Meanwhile, in the bowl of a stand mixer, add the whipping cream.
  4. Using the whisk attachment, Start the mixer on slow, adding speed every 20 seconds until you reach the 4th setting.  
  5. Continue to whisk until there is the beginning of a stiff consistency.  While the whisk is running, add the powdered sugar, continue whisking for 30 seconds.  
  6. Next, with the whisk still running, drizzle the corn syrup into the whipped cream for abother 30 seconds.  By now you should have very thick stiff whipped cream.  Store covered in the fridge until ready to serve.
  7. Pour the Hot Nutella Chocolate in a cup.  Add the Schnapps and Whiskey and stir to mix.
  8. Add a dollop of whipped cream 
  9. Serve Hot and ENJOY!
