“Nutella” Coffee Creamer

I love coffee.  We’ve been over this.  My hot chocolate coffee creamer seemed to be a big hit, and I’m always ready to try something new. So recently, I found this stuff:

Jif-Hazelnut-Spread
Okay, yes.  I’m aware that it is basically Nutella.  But I had never tried Nutella. I’m late catching the boat – I know, it’s been so trendy for so long. Anyway, a $1 off coupon tempted me to try this new Jif Chocolate Hazelnut Spread.

Fast forward about a week.

I went with my sister for a quick grocery run after she moved into her dorm.  She was incredibly disappointed when we saw that the local store was out of hazelnut coffee creamer.  (How does the grocery run out of something like that?)  So once I got home, I set out to make some for her myself.  I couldn’t find hazelnut extract, but then it dawned on me.  I’ve got THIS STUFF.  And thus, my Nutella Chocolate Hazelnut Coffee Creamer was born.

Nutella” (Chocolate Hazelnut) Coffee Creamer

Ingredients
  • 1 14oz can sweetened condensed milk, I always use fat-free
  • 3.5 c milk or half&half (I used 1% milk)
  • 3 tbsp Jif Chocolate Hazelnut Spread (I assume Nutella would work too, but I can’t promise it, because I haven’t done it.)
 Directions

Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan.  Heat over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until the chocolate has become fully incorporated with the milks.  Store in an airtight container & refrigerate.  Then, enjoy your coffee!!!

  2. Yum! You had me at Nutella. I don't think it would be a good idea for me to have this in the house - I could probably drink a gallon :)

  4. I bought my first jar of Nutella a few weeks ago - I saw that it had Ferrero written on it. I then realized that Ferrero Rochers have Nutella in the middle and I had indeed tried it before. My husband loves Nutella and he needs his coffee in the morning or he's not a real person, so I'm sure he would absolutely love this. I think I would too since Hazelnut is one of my favorite flavors with coffee.

    Stopping by from Thursday's Treasures! Pinned to share :)

  5. I made your hazelnut creamer this morning but with Nutella. The Nutella didn't incorporate all the way, with some chunks on the top. Still was really good!
