Nutella Hot Cocoa and My Favorite Christmas Movies!

Hi everyone, welcome back! We are deep into the Christmas season and so I thought it would be really fun to share a hot cocoa recipe that we recently tried and loved!  It's super simple and as you already know from the title it involves Nutella, you better put on your stretchy pants because you are going to want more than one mug full, trust me, it is rich and creamy and just so delicious!


1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream

6 cups of milk (I like using whole milk)

1 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract

1 cup of chocolate chips

1 cup of Nutella

2 cups of marshmallows


Start by pouring your milk and heavy cream into a sauce pan and heat over a medium setting.  Heat until the mixture is hot but not boiling.

Remove from heat and add in both kinds of chocolate and vanilla extract then stir until smooth.

Now add your marshmallows, cover with a lid, and return the sauce pan to a low heat setting for about five minutes.  This will melt the marshmallows and turn your drink into an ooey gooey delight.

Top with whip cream or another favorite topping and you're ready to serve and enjoy!

Now, is there anything better than curling up with your hot cocoa next to your Christmas tree and watching Christmas movies?  It's literally one of my favorite things and there are a few Christmas movies that I have grown to love so much over the years and so I thought I would share my favorites!

1. Christmas with the Kranks

2. Arthur Christmas (Especially since we started having kids!)

3. Home Alone

4. Elf

5. The Santa Clause

*and of course any cheesy original tv movie from Freeform, Hallmark, Lifetime, or Netflix.  My husband literally cannot take it but I am alllllll about it! 

These are in no particular order but I just feel like the season isn't complete unless I have watched all of them throughout December (or November)!

What are some of your favorite Christmas recipes and movies?  I would love to know!

Virtually holding up my cup of hot cocoa to yours...cheers to the weekend!


  1. Gorgeous photos! I can't wait to try this recipe. Last night, my husband and I watched How the Grinch Stole Christmas with Jim Carey -- which is another awesome holiday movie.

  2. Thank you! If you try it, let me know what you think! I love the Grinch too, I heard they are going to be doing another animated version of it with Benedict Cumberbatch (all the heart eyes)!

  3. That's funny I was just wondering if there was a way to put Nutella in my got cocoa! Thanks for sharing a recipe.
