Sometimes it’s dumping rain on the ONE weekend you reserved a campsite. Sometimes it’s so windy you have to chase your tent down like a tumbleweed. Sometimes it’s so cold out that you can’t feel your hands. And sometimes all of that happens all at once on the same day. If you ever find yourself in such a circumstance, we have one piece of advice: Treat Yo Self.

This “recipe” is for when the weather gets out of hand, plans start to fall apart, stress levels begin to rise. When all you need is for one thing to go right: this can be that thing. Nutella Hot Chocolate.

It requires only the barest of ingredients and can be ready in practically no time at all. And who can be angry when they’re sipping down a mouthful of hazelnut chocolate? It might not turn your whole day around, but it could be the one thing that keeps you sane.

      Hi Morgo! We do plan on traveling through most of the winter, with a short break around the holidays.

      We are actually working on a Winter Camping guide right now, so we should have that out in the next few weeks with some more information!

      That sounds awesome! I’m partial to almond butter myself, so I might need to try your version!!
