Did you ever have that Chantico drink from Starbucks? Before kids I worked at the bucks for YEARS. This was by far my favorite, the hubby can tell you. A little 4 ounce cup of melted chocolate and a shot of espresso - OH YUM!
Well the last few days I have seen quite a few Nutella Hot Chocolate recipes floating around.
Since getting my new Crock Pot Trio Buffet Cooker, Stainless Steel and Black I have been enjoying trying out small portion recipes.
Today I cleaned the fridge and ended up with a scrumptious cup of warm spiced liquid chocolate!!!
Using the last 1/2 cup of half and half and eggnog and the remaining carton of milk. All added up to about a quart. The tossed in two scoops of chocolate protein powder and a 1/4 cup of Nutella. Whisked it up a bit, turned pot on high for about an hour. (I didn't mean to do it this long, but got busy making the little guy and I some lunch.)
Came back whisked it up again and then strained it. You know how milk gets that skin and with the powder it always makes it a little frothy. Next time, I will make more cause it is GONE!
I have since tried this recipe on the stove top - it comes out a really odd almost snotty consistency, so use the crock pot ;)
