I was so excited when SheSpeaks asked me to be a Torani blogger. My family loves Torani for Italian ices and the kids love making soda in the SodaStream with Torani flavorings. When I found out I would be getting hazelnut and gingerbread flavors, I was a little nervous. I had never thought about using Torani syrups in hot beverages. Was I up to the challenge?
After some debate with the kids, we came up with a recipe for each of the flavorings. You’ll have to wait until next week for the gingerbread recipe. This week the recipe is:
Hazelnut Hot Chocolate with Hazelnut Whipped Cream
For the Hot Chocolate
your favorite hot chocolate mix
six ounces of milk per person
1 tsp. Torani hazelnut syrup
For the Whipped Cream
2 cups heavy whipping cream
3 Tbsp. sugar
4 Tbsp. Torani hazelnut syrup
Chill metal bowl and beaters in the refrigerator or freezer until cold. Beat whipping cream, sugar and 4 Tbsp. of Torani syrup on high speed until soft peaks form.
Heat milk in microwave for 1 1/2 minutes on high. Stir in hot chocolate mix and 1 tsp. of Torani syrup. Top with hazelnut whipped cream to taste.
