    When it’s cold outside, there’s no better drink to warm you up than hot chocolate, especially when it’s as indulgent as this one. Forget about your usual powdered hot chocolate beverages, inspired by the unbeatable Ferrero Rocher, this drink uses real chocolate melted in hazelnut milk, topped with whipped cream and chopped nuts. It’s a little bit naughty but it’s so worth it.

    Here's what you'll need...

    • 225mls of hazelnut milk
    • 50g of milk chocolate
    • 1 tsp of cocoa powder, plus a little extra for dusting
    • ½ a tsp of chopped hazelnuts
    • Whipped cream
