When I told my husband that I was making Nutella cappuccino today so that I could share the recipe with you, he actually giggled. Like a little girl. That's how good these are. They're pretty rich and decadent, so I don't make them very often. They're definitely a special treat, which explains the giggling.
This is the supereasy version of this recipe, but you can feel free to complicate it however you see fit! I use espresso powder, but you can certainly use real espresso shots. I also use a blender, but if you have a fancy espresso machine with a milk frother or one of those cool handheld frothing wands, you can use those instead.
You can also leave out the espresso to make this recipe kid-friendly — it's just as tasty as Nutella hot chocolate.
If you want to be extrafancy, garnish with a dusting of espresso powder or cocoa powder. Or chocolate shavings. Or Irish whiskey.
- 2 cups of milk (it will obviously taste best with whole milk, but any kind will work!)
1/2 cup Nutella
1/2 tablespoon espresso powder (or more if you like it stronger)
- Pour the milk into a small saucepan.
- Bring to a simmer, remove from heat.
- Pour the milk into a blender.
- Add Nutella and espresso powder.
- Run the blender on medium power until ingredients are well-combined (about 15 seconds).
- Fill mugs or glasses halfway with the hot milk mixture, leaving some in the blender.
- Run the blender on high power to froth the remaining milk.
- Spoon the frothy milk into mugs.
