I’ve seen recipes for hot chocolate made with Nutella popping up all over the blogosphere lately, and since I love drinking hot chocolate this time of year and I love love love Nutella, I decided I had to try my own version. I whipped this up for us for the first time a couple of weekends ago, and Joe and Andrew have both requested it numerous times since then. I’m always happy to oblige! The Nutella adds such a rich, nutty quality to the hot chocolate that I just can’t get enough of.
This will most likely be my last post before Christmas, so I want to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas! I’ll be back next week with a wrap-up of some of my favorite recipes of the year. Have a wonderful and safe holiday, everyone!
