This year, I did something a little different. Instead of trying a dessert recipe, I decided to  try out a recipe for a creamy Nutella liqueur.  This delicious drink is so easy to make and is sure to impress your dinner guests.

Here’s what you need:

¾ cup Nutella
½ sugar
1 ¼  cup heavy whipping cream
1 ½ – 2 cups of vodka (or to taste)

Here’s what you do:

In a medium saucepan, stir together the Nutella and sugar until they are well combined.  Then slowly add the heavy whipping cream. Continue stirring gently until the Nutella, sugar and heavy cream are a smooth creamy texture.

Allow the mixture to cool down to room temperature.

Once cooled, stir in the vodka.  I would suggest starting with 1 or 1 ½ cups then slowly add more to get the taste you desire.

Pour in a shot glass and serve with a dollop of whipped cream on top.

This liqueur can be stored in the fridge for up to three weeks.

There you have it, a tried and tested Nutella liqueur recipe that is great for any special occasion.
