Nutella lip balm is an actual thing and it takes just three ingredients to make.

All you need is a pot to place it in, beeswax chips, coconut oil... and Nutella.

An online tutorial by Cute Life Hacks, famous for EOS lip balm hacks, has gone viral with chocolate and beauty addicts who want buttery soft, Nutella-tasting lips.

Apparently the chocolate hazlenut spread is an ideal ingredient due to its large palm oil content, making it similar to the coconut oil used in most at-home EOS lip balm tutorials.

It's pretty easy to do too and it goes on clear for glossy, nourished lips.

Start by putting one tablespoon of beeswax chips in to a heatproof jar or cup. If you don't have the beeswax, use one plain white tealight candle (chopped up) instead.

Follow up with a heaped tablespoon of Nutella, and then two or three tablespoons of coconut oil.

Next, heat the mixture in a shallow pot of boiling water until all ingredients are combined.

If you are using an empty EOS pot, put the grate from the base of the container so it is sitting on the lid, then pour into the empty container, until it just covers the grate.

Place the Nutella filled half of the container into the freezer for 10 minutes or until firm.

Snap the base of the EOS container in to the Nutella filled half, and you have the lip balm of your chocolate fantasies.

While the scent of the balm may make your mouth water, it's important to remember that it's not edible.

While beeswax is non-toxic, it is not intended for human consumption - so use on your lips only.
