Hot Chocolate: Hazy Hazelnut November 20, 2019 – Posted in: Recipes – Tags: , , , , ,

Hot chocolate with hazelnut – perfect for a hazy winter day!

The hot chocolate with a taste of hazelnut is perfect for a foggy winter day, where even the birds are quiet. For a Hazy Hazelnut, use a nut syrup that gives the good taste of hazelnut. How much syrup you want to use depends on your sweet tooth and how well you like the taste of hazelnut:

2 cl: Gives your hot chocolate a hint of hazelnut
3 cl: The perfect balance of nuts and chocolate
4 cl: For you who has a sweet tooth and love the taste of nuts!


  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1½ dl boiling water
  • 2-4 cl hazelnut syrup
  • 2 dl hot milk foam (or just varm milk, if you don’t have a milk frother)
  • Whipped cream, for topping
  • Cocoa sprinkles, for topping
  • Finely chopped, roasted hazelnuts, for topping

How to make a Hazy Hazelnut

  1. Put the cocoa powder in a tall glass and add water.
  2. Stir well until dissolved.
  3. Add hazelnut syrup and stir well.
  4. Add the warm milk foam.
  5. Garnish with whipped cream, sprinkles and roasted hazelnuts.

A few tips to get the best hot chocolate

If you choose to make your hot chocolate with all milk and no water, you should consider that it will be too full in taste. As suggested, instead use half water and half milk. If you want to make a vegan hot chocolate on the creamy almond milk or other plant milk, be aware that a lot of cocoa powder contains milk protein or traces of milk.

If you want a full-bodied and sinful hot chocolate, like the one you got at the café, you need to buy a milk frother. A frother gives the milk the creamy texture in the hot drink. Do choose a milk frother that not only whips the milk, it must also be able to heat it at the same time.
