The Molly Yeh blog put together a recipe for a Nutella-flavored version of the famous egg cream drink. Despite the misleading name, egg cream is a traditional New York drink that contains neither eggs nor cream. Instead, this delicious beverage is made from a combination of milk, carbonated water and chocolate syrup.

This recipe puts a twist on the classic egg cream drink by using Nutella instead of chocolate syrup. The rest of the drink is made up of whole milk and seltzer water. The unique blend of ingredients delivers the rich flavor of chocolate milk with the carbonated texture of a traditional fountain drink.

Although the combination of ingredients may sound unusual, the drink is extremely popular in New York City.
