Nutella Hot Coffee
My husband wins a gold star for bringing me this Nutella hot coffee yesterday morning and letting me lounge under my covers while he made breakfast and took care of our kiddo.
Who says romance is dead? Nope romance is a chocolatey coffee drink after a month of healthy eating and exercising and staying in bed for an extra half hour on the weekend.
It was glorious.
Seriously, staying in bed those extra 30 minutes without being needed to find socks, change a diaper, feed a dog was absolutely luxurious. It was the mom equivalent of 5 star hotel service. Decadent.
And I guess that describes this Nutella hot coffee in general. It’s decadent, luxurious. It’s definitely not a weekday coffee drink unless you are feeling fancy, but more of a special weekend kind of treat. Ok, or maybe take an extra 5 minutes to whip it up on a particularly dreadful Monday morning so you have something to smile about.
The coffee drink is super easy. Just some brewed coffee, and we often have leftover coffee because I ALWAYS have a pot of coffee on while I’m home. #momlife After the brewed coffee, mix your coffee with half and half or cream or milk. Whatever floats your little coffee boat, really. And I like my coffee sweet, so we added sugar. (TBH, sugar only added as a treat since I normally use Splenda or Stevia in my coffee since I drink a metric ton of it every day.) But add whatever sweetener you like.
Then, the star of the show: glorious beautiful Nutella. My hero in a jar. How have I never put this in coffee before? Could it be my PSL love has made me blind to this obvious delicious combo? Perhaps. But you just stir a good quarter cup into the saucepan with your coffee, sugar, and cream. Let it melt. And then top with whipped cream. And maybe, if you have this as an after dinner kind of thing, add in a couple ounces of Kahlua for an alcoholic version.
Because it’s good to treat yourself. Especially when the treat is a cross between coffee and hot cocoa and perfect for a cold winter day or treating your Valentine to a sweet drink.
