Mexican Nutella Hot Chocolate

Hun... What's for Dinner?: Mexican Nutella Hot Chocolate

 Well, it's that time of year again, where the temperatures drop and all we think about are ways to keep warm. My favourite way is Hot Chocolate. I LOVE the creamy and chocolaty hot drink!! So much, that we pretty much go through a can of powder in 2 weeks, maybe less. On the mornings when I go to Hubby's favourite coffee shop to get him his usual, you can bet I'm coming home with a LARGE hot chocolate, LOL. This past weekend, I had put the kids to bed, turned the fireplace on and was about to settle in to watch some reality TV, when a hot chocolate craving hit.

 We were out of powder, so I decided to make it with Nutella and milk. I added a cinnamon stick, a touch of vanilla and a slight pinch of cayenne and the result was spectacular. It was sweet, and had a lovely warmth from the cinnamon and vanilla. Then right at the end of each sip, was a slight pop of spicy heat, that warmed me up, right down to my toes.
