Nutella Hot Chocolate + Cinnamon Whipped Cream

Nutella hot chocolate from The Sweetest Occasion

I’ve never pretended to be a food blogger and there’s a pretty good reason why, my friends. That’s one heck of a tough job taking those impeccably styled and beautiful photos all the while trying to make sure your cocoa isn’t too cold and you don’t have whipped cream flying all over the place! On that note, I won’t lie. While putting together this post there was a bit of an explosion of chocolate and melting whipped cream in my kitchen. But you’re going to have to take my word on it – this is the ultimate winter treat! Creamy, decadent Nutella hot chocolate topped with cinnamon whipped cream. There is not a thing not to love.

Nutella Hot Chocolate (makes 1 serving)

  • 1 cup of milk (most any milk will work)
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons of Nutella

Over medium heat, warm milk in a saucepan. When warmed through, add Nutella and whisk to combine. Continue heating over medium heat, whisking as necessary, until cocoa is steamy and frothy. (Make sure not to boil or scald the milk!)

Cinnamon Whipped Cream

  • 1 cup of heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients. Use a mixer on high speed and beat until stiff peaks form. Voila!

See? Chocolate and cream gone wild. But trust me, there are far far worse problems to have in life than a mug of Nutella hot chocolate that is so good it can’t contain it’s own awesomeness. And with that, go make a mug. You’ll be so glad you did.

I am suddenly so happy! I must make this! I’ve had nutella hot chocolate before but with cinnamon whipped cream….for the win!

Oh my! That whipped cream looks amazing! Seriously, it looks like a Christmas dream. Well done!

Oh my goodness! I was just looking at my Nutella and thinking to myself “I wish I could make a hot drink with this” and here we go! Thanks so much :D

WHAT?! I’m sorry, this is terribly wonderful for my soul, and I will have to make this tonight!! Brilliance, Cyd.

[…] I’m already obsessed with cinnamon whipped cream and this idea of using it to top┬ánutella hot chocolate┬ájust sounds too […]

I’m addicted to this whipped cream. I had to stop myself from buying the large container of heavy cream at the store yesterday.


lol I love that, E! I just have to say no. I could eat a whole bowl of it with a spoon!


Tried it with whole chocolate milk….chocolate overload! Delicious!


Oh wow. That sounds amazing, Mandy! Thanks for sharing!

That sounds amazing! And I love the cute cup you used for it :-)


Thanks, Caitlyn! The mug is one of a set of four that I picked up at a garage sale a while back :-)
