Nutella Hot Chocolate

Brr! Winter is officially here. With snowstorm Hercules making his way through the city, I can’t think of anything better than curling up on the couch with my son in one arm and a cup of Nutella hot chocolate in the other. For those of you who are unfamiliar, Nutella is a delicious chocolate hazelnut spread. It’s the peanut-butter of the Italian pantry- often spread over crusty Italian bread for a sweet snack. (Try it with sliced bananas on top too- delicious!) Adding it to your hot chocolate adds a decadent Italian twist.
