How many of you have made homemade hot chocolate?  No envelopes.  I will admit that it’s crazy easy to open an envelope and dump it into warm water or milk, but know what else is crazy easy?  Making this homemade hazelnut hot chocolate.  Who doesn’t love the combination of chocolate and hazelnut?  Candies, spreads, cookies.  I mean you really can’t go wrong.  It’s also a delicious sweet combination for the holidays isn’t it?  Chocolate hazelnut.  Yum.

My Hazelnut Hot Cocoa has 4 simple ingredients and is ready as soon as the milk gets warm. I warmed mine on a medium to low heat, so it was steaming in about 5 minutes.  It is the perfect way to warm you up on those cool nights.  Now, we don’t get as cold as others here in Florida, but when the temperature reaches the 60s at night, that is perfect hot cocoa weather for us.  Hazelnut Hot Cocoa is the perfect warm to warm up and indulge, this season and beyond.  Who says hot cocoa has to be for just for fall and winter?

Simple. Delicious. Sweet. I served my Hazelnut Hot Cocoa with Voortman Bakery Chocolate Hazelnut Wafers. Voortman Bakery Wafers are baked with real cocoa and made with no artificial colors, flavors and no high-fructose corn syrup. Making them absolutely perfect for dipping into your Hazelnut Hot Cocoa. I even sprinkled some right on top of my cocoa, along with some whipped topping. So good. Just imagine that crunchy wafer melting into your hot chocolate perfection.
