Great addition to Hot Chocolate ...

... Nutella.

Tried it last night.

A big spoonful swirled into my hot chocolate and a quick zap in the microwave to make sure it melted. Smooth, creamy and gives just the right punch to the hot chocolate without making it too sweet.

Just thought I'd share. Much better than marshmallows ... and plus, it was a big hit with my nephew, which is always a good thing.

      My mom does amaretto. (Peach Schnapps w/ Cider too!) Nutella sounds awfully good, even though I'm partial to cinnamon!

    2. Spiced rum and whipped cream...In Nfld. it's called a snowball. (Probably not so good for your nephew)

        1. one milk chocolate Lindt Truffle after the hot chocolate is heated through...I just plop one in my mug..Mmmm good

          1. A touch of seasalt works for me, especially when hot chocolate is too sweet and rich. A touch of cayenne is also pretty amazing.
