Please excuse my lack of posts lately. This is the busiest time of year on Divas Can Cook and I  should  be cook’in it up. The truth?  I simply have not felt like being in my kitchen lately. I walk into the kitchen, look around and call for carry-out. Ever have days or weeks like that? I think some of it is because I am soooo over my tiny, cluttered kitchen. I’ve acquired a TON of cool new kitchen gadgets and there is simply not enough space to put them. Every things falls out of the cabinets when you open them. So not fun! I’ve got a blender, bread machine, coffee maker and foreman grilled stashed away in the bedroom closet and a few other things stashed at my in-laws house.

The PERFECT post-shopping, present wrapping treat!

We’ll be moving in a couple of months (fingers crossed) and my new kitchen has already spoiled me with all the storage possibilities and space. I’m so ready to move! Ok that’s enough venting. I feel better and I’ve organized my kitchen a little so that helps too.

Frosty yet comforting! Pour yourself a glass or two.

Thankfully, I’m finally starting to get out of my non-cooking rut (my family rejoices) because today I whipped up some of these easy and heavenly  frozen nutella hot chocolates after lunch. In my eyes, Nutella can do no wrong and  hot chocolate is such a comforting treat even in frozen form. I knew it would be a match made in heaven. It was just what I needed to spark my cooking because for lunch I made some incredible hot turkey and cheese sandwiches (recipe coming).

I made  frozen Nutella hot chocolate for the three of us and there  was pure silence in the kitchen as we sat drinking them. If you’ve never had a frozen hot chocolate before then you must make these! It tastes exactly like a hot chocolate but frosty and laced with heavenly nutella. I think Isaac described it best when he said “mmm it tastes like a cold candy bar, with tiny ice in my mouth and I think of ice cream a little bit when I drink it!” Kids have the best descriptions ever!

    Yum! I made this for my brother who wanted a “chocolate smoothie.” I halved everything and it fit right into my small blender. I’m lazy, so I used the microwave for all the melting, and the freezer for cooling, and it turned out just grand. I asked my brother for his opinion, and he said, “It’s like really smooth and good and Nutella-y.” I wish I’d had whipped cream to top it off, but it was still really rich and delicious! Thanks for the recipe.
