    1 heaped spoonful of cocoa powder

    3 shots of vodka

    2 shots of Frangelico or Amaretto (optional)

    Ice 

    Extra Nutella & chopped hazelnuts (for serving)

     

    Directions

    Gently heat the milk in a pan, along with your Nutella and cocoa powder.

    Keep stirring until it’s smooth and good ‘n’ hot!

    Leave on one side to cool completely (speed up the process by putting it outside if you’re somewhere chilly)

    While it’s chilling you can prep your glasses.

    Spread some chocolate spread onto a side plate, and cover another plate in chopped hazelnuts.

    Dip the rim of your glass into the chocolate and twist it 360 degrees.

    Once the rim’s all coated, do the same in the pile of nuts. 

    When your chocolate milk is nice & cold, pour into a cocktail shaker (this is my copper one).

    Add your booze.

     Shake it, baby! And pour into martini glasses
