My love of lattes and all things coffee related has taken me to another great recipe! The chocolate hazelnut latte is super easy to make at home. It does require you to make espresso (or brew very strong coffee) and froth the milk tho. If you have never made a latte, the froth is the foamy looking substance on the top of the latte (milk and whatever you add to it.) No worries, I have a solution if you do not have a frother or a coffee bar.

I did some searching and found The Pioneer Woman has an article about frothing milk without having a coffee bar – 8 Ways to Froth Milk. It should be noted tho that I have never tried these methods but thought it might help my readers who want to try the chocolate hazelnut latte but do not have a coffee bar. She has some great ways to froth it and you probably have at least one of the gadgets in your house now.

To make this latte, it is easier to have something with a frother and espresso making capabilities but not required if you follow the instructions for frothing from the article above.

This is our amazing creator of all things good, I mean our coffee bar and we love it in case you want a recommendation for one to get:

Making the Chocolate Hazelnut Latte

I am sure you can use the syrup, but I prefer the hazelnut flavored coffee. Honestly, I buy Walmart brand for this and they do have some good flavored coffee for a decent price. If you do not have a coffee bar or espresso machine, you can use very strongly brewed coffee – pretty much all that espresso is.

If using the Ninja Coffee Bar, put 2 big scoops of hazelnut coffee into the basket. Brew it on specialty which will brew 4 ounces. If using another gadget, follow instructions to brew espresso using the hazelnut coffee. If you are using the hazelnut syrup instead of coffee, I would put some in your cup before brewing the espresso. You definitely want the coffee to have the hazelnut flavor.

While that is brewing, pour 1/2 cup of milk into a microwave safe mug. Add a tablespoon (or a little more if desired) of chocolate syrup to the milk and stir well. Microwave for 45 seconds.

When the microwave is done, froth your milk and chocolate mix for about 30 seconds. Pour immediately onto your espresso. Top with whipped cream and drip some more syrup on top. Thinking about it now, I would love to try this with Hershey’s chocolate whipped cream! There is always next time 🙂

      It is an amazing combination, right? 🙂 I still haven’t got the Hershey’s chocolate whipped cream yet, but I am sure that will be incredible instead of regular whipped cream!

    OMG! I didn’t know there was something like hazelnut ground coffee! In what world do I live in??? We don’t have that here in Croatia (if we do I’ve never seen or heard of it). Man, I’d love to try this latte because it sounds AMAZING!
    Btw, I love your recipes! As soon as my stupid diet ends I’ll try out a few things – will let you know how it turned out 😉

      Thank you 🙂 We have the hazelnut coffee in our supermarkets and also Walmart, but I notice locally here that Walmart is cheaper and their brand is good too – at least for the flavored coffees!
