Hazelnut hot chocolate

hot chocolate with whipped cream and hazelnuts

Hot chocolate is one of those drinks I only enjoy in December. A bit strange, I know, but although it’s not strictly a Christmas drink, I seem to associate it with this time of year. That said, because I drink it so little, when I have it, I want it to be really indulgent, just like this hazelnut hot chocolate I made for AO Life. There’s not so much as a spoonful of hot chocolate powder to be found in this luxurious drink, but real, proper chocolate. Intrigued? Pop on over to AO Life to find my recipe.

    I’ll have a look, sounds very interesting with real chocolate and not powder.

      It is really good Anca and so much nicer than powdered hot chocolate :-)

    This looks so decadent and delicious! Do you think it would be okay to use dark chocolate as I can’t eat milk? I would imagine this would make it slightly less sweet, but what do you think? Thanks for sharing this though – my sweet tooth is in overdrive this time of year and this definitely appears to hit the spot!

      It would definitely work with dark chocolate, Kathryn. I imagine it would taste even more decadent and might even be a little bit better for you :-)

    This looks delicious! I may have had one too many hot chocolates and cream this season already but they’re just far too tempting. x

    I think I like hot chocolate way too much! I drink it a lot more in winter but I crave it all year round! :)
