Cinnamon Nutella Hot Chocolate

Life has been so up and down lately. So nuts. I haven't posted since August for some very good reasons; got a new job (yay!), had photography sessions every weekend...sometimes multiple, and then all of a sudden...emergency surgery to remove my appendix while working the night shift.

I've had no time to bake, cook, or photograph food. And for the reasons above, I've missed it. So, I was very pleased when I saw that SLR Lounge posted a contest/challenge on their Facebook page for the weekend.

As most/all of you know, food is how I began my journey into photography. So when I saw their challenge, and I even had the weekend off work and time to do this, I was pretty excited.

I've posted this recipe before, but here it is again, and my photos along with it for the challenge.

Cinnamon Nutella Hot Chocolate
1 mug full of milk
2 tbsp. nutella
1 small hand-full of chocolate chips (milk or semi-sweet)
1 cinnamon stick
1 tsp. vanilla

1. Pour milk into small saucepan, add the cinnamon stick and chocolate chips. Simmer on low heat for about 5 minutes.

2. Whisk above ingredients until milk is heated nicely and starts to bubble slightly. Add the Nutella and continue to whisk until fully dissolved.

3. Once Nutella is fully dissolved, let simmer for about another 5 minutes (but keep whisking!), letting the cinnamon stick bring out it's flavour. Pour into your favourite mug, curl up on the couch, and enjoy!

The above image is my submission to the weekend challenge.
