Nutella coffee

You’ve probably tried combining coffee with chocolate. You might have tried adding nut-flavored syrup to your coffee. You might even have bought ground coffee mixed with ground nuts. But have you tried combining all three — coffee, chocolate and nuts — in one drink?

I did. I took a heaping teaspoonful of Nutella, dropped it into hot coffee, I heated the mixture in the microwave to make the Nutella stirrable, added just enough sugar to balance the flavor, then topped it with whipped cream drizzled with chocolate syrup. And that is my Nutella coffee.

For those still unfamiliar with Nutella, it is a hazelnut spread that includes cocoa powder among the ingredients. I’ve never used it as a sandwich filling but I’ve used it as a crepe filling and as topping for my self-frosting Nutella cupcakes. Now, Nutella goes into my coffee too.

    Aaaayyy, ako rin I do some chocolatey things with my coffee sometimes…
    like when I am baking my choc-oat-chip cookies with choco drizzle… I make it a treat to drizzle some melted dark sweet chocolate on my coffee… It energizes me more! Dati naman, I also dropped Reese’s chocolate peanut butter cup in my coffee. One day, I will surely try your version of playing around with coffee.

    ooh, nutella! out of desperation, i did that same thing (less the whipped cream and choco syrup) to my anmum milk. made it more tolerable. didnt beat coffee banana anmum shake or choco banana anmum shake, but for a warm mug during cold days, it passed the test- especially since i just HATE how materna milk tastes!! though i made hot cocoa with the same milk yesterday and the results were yum yum yummy.
