This alcoholic Nutella drink will save us this winter

Honestly; what party, celebration or gathering (or night in alone) isn't instantly improved by the addition of Nutella?

Having been busy spreading it on toast, dolloping it into cake batter and swirling it into hot milk for the past 12 months, we were more than ready for a new, extra festive way to enjoy our favourite spread and now booze blogger extraordinaire Amy of Thermomix Me A Drink Darling has delivered in a major way.

Take it from us: Nutella Liqueur is the Christmas drink of 2016. And thanks to Amy, you can mix up a batch in the comfort of your kitchen.

Eat, drink, and be merry y'all! #happyholidays #nutellaliqueur

A simple blend of vodka and chocolate and praline goodness, this is guaranteed to be a hit at Christmas parties so make sure you make enough to enjoy a few yourself on Christmas Eve too.

While Amy uses a Thermomix to make her liqueur, it can also be done by adding all the non-boozy ingredients to a warm saucepan until melted, then adding in your vodka at the end when the pan is cooler.

Here's what you need to make your Nutella cocktail dreams come true...
