This weekend, we got an unexpected few minutes of hail, which is extremely rare. In my entire lifetime I've only seen hail in LA twice! I kept wondering why the rain hitting the roof was so loud, and when I checked there was ice on the ground. It was so bizarre.
Living in Los Angeles, it hardly ever rains, so I cherish the opportunity to curl up in bed, enjoy a warm drink, and stare at the raindrops falling outside. There's nothing better than a warm cup of hot chocolate on a rainy day. Today, I decided to make myself some - with a spin. Instead of using cocoa powder, I chose to use spoonfuls of Nutella instead. The rich and creamy hazelnut spread is the perfect ingredient to spice up the traditional hot cocoa.
1 cup soy milk
4 large spoonfuls of Nutella (or more to taste)
1 teaspoon condensed milk
Cinnamon (to taste)
Begin by heating your milk over the stove. Wait for the milk to get warm, then add the spoons of Nutella. Make sure to stir, so that the Nutella doesn't sit on the bottom. Add condensed milk for some sweetness. Finish by sprinkling cinnamon on top!
Sometimes, I also like to add marshmallows or marshmallow fluff. Enjoy!
