Hey guys 🙂 Have you ever had those moments when you just HAD to have something sweet? Yeah, I get those too. A lot. Almost every night. Anyway, last night, I was having one of my cravings. Normally I solve this by shoving Nutella into my mouth by the spoonful. Ah, good old Nutella. But this time, I wanted something more. I had some chocolate ganache in my freezer and I came up with this fantastic recipe! This is so deliciously rich (I like my chocolate drinks thick, with a strong flavour of cocoa. No watered down stuff for me, thank you). You can taste the chocolate and the Nutella, and it is absolutely easy to make! Win, I say. And yes, it took care of my craving and made me a very happy girl. I swear, if I was a cat, I’d totally be purring with satisfaction right now!
Nutella and chocolate ganache- could this combination ever go wrong, really?
Ingredients: For 1 greedy person
Duration: 15 mins (excluding time for the ganache prep)
Milk – 1 Cup
Frozen chocolate ganache – ½ Cup
Nutella – 2 tbsp
If you want to know how to make ganache, see my post here. We need frozen ganache here as it adds thickness to the drink. I didn’t add ice cubes because I didn’t want to dilute the flavours. But if you like it, feel free to do so. It’s all about experimenting till you get to what you love! Note that I didn’t add sugar. That’s because the ganache was sweet and so was the Nutella. But if you like it sweeter, you can always add more. I personally can’t consume something in large quantities if it’s too sweet. Okay, now let’s get on with the recipe.
All you need to do is put everything in a blender and blend till it is completely mixed together.
Yes, that’s it! I don’t want to tell I told you so… but it was easy, wasn’t it?
Now you can sip this drink and purr too!
in no time, you’ll be as content as this kitty!
