Hazelnut Chocolate Caffe

So, I have a confession to make.  I am completely addicted to Stumble Upon.  If you use it, you know what I’m talking about.  Right?  RIGHT?  If you’ve never used it, go sign up and be prepared to watch the hours go ticking by.  It’s kind of like Pinterest for websites.  Which, by the way, is my other major weakness.  Ok, let’s get back to the point before I abandon this post to go Stumble or Pin something.

I was “stumbling” the other night and came across my friend Miss’ blog Miss in the Kitchen.  I usually stop by her blog and comment on her posts and for whatever reason I didn’t notice the post for Cinnamon Nutella Hot Cocoa.  Maybe the moon and sun were in a strange pattern of waxing or waning, or maybe I’m just making this up to make myself feel better for totally missing this amazing post.  Whichever it is, I managed to “stumble” on it yesterday and basically read the post, put down my iPad and promptly went to the kitchen.  The kids were stoked that the Nutella was coming out of the cupboard, the Hubs was open to the idea of adding some espresso to the cocoa and I was making it as fast as I could so I could savor….every….sip!

Go stop by and say HI to Miss and tell her I sent ya.  She’s a sweetie and has some amazing recipes on her blog!!  So, should we make some coffee??

  1. Nutella is one magical ingredient.I wouldn’t mind at all,calling it a taste of paradise,when added to a preparation it makes it equally heavenly too.
    For example,Nutella crepes – Warm crepes with Nutella,sliced bananas and a small,soft peak of whipped cream by the side!Yummy!
    ‘Hazelnut Chocolate Caffe’ looks delicious,I better note down/bookmark the recipe!
    Thank you for sharing.:-)

  2. My husband has never had Nutella. (I know, I can’t believe I am just finding out about this little secret.) I don’t know of a better way to introduce him to the addictive stuff!

  3. OMG!
    Cute cup & saucer….
    As for the Nutella, I nearly grew up on it… Nutella & Nussfit(same as Nutella) We would eat it on toast along side our (very strong)coffee. Gary loves it on taost with banana slices. fyi: also great for strawberries & apple dipping. Or, just straigh from the jar, a spoonful to get my instant chocolate jolt! lol!
    p.s. I recently joined ‘pintrest’. Great minds think alike! lol!

  4. I signed up for StumbleUpon and Pinterest and haven’t been back since. Now that I’ve sort of figured out triberr, I guess it’s time to figure out the others. Thanks for the reminder!
