It’s time to put a twist on the classic winter drink. Warm up with a big mug of this tiramisu hot cocoa, it tastes just like the Italian dessert.
If you missed it, I recently shared a super thick and creamy recipe for Nutella hot chocolate. I wanted to continue with hot chocolate ideas and I mean, how perfect is a tiramisu for hot chocolate? The very next day, I ran into the kitchen and started working out my recipe.
This tiramisu hot chocolate takes all the flavor components of a tiramisu and implements them in every part of this drink with minimal effort, including a lady finger for you to dunk into your hot chocolate and scoop up the mascarpone whipped cream. Seriously, there isn’t anything better than a long dunk of the hot chocolate and a nice scoop of the whipped cream while watching your favorite classic movie (I am personally a total Audrey Hepburn fan over here!)
Put on your pjs, throw on a movie, and whip up some hot chocolate with someone and just hang out for a bit! And if Nutella is more your style, make THIS ONE.
