The really cool temperatures are creeping in here in Wyoming and nothing warms you up like a nice cup of hot cocoa. I decided to give my cocoa a new twist with some Nutella and cinnamon. I get teased a lot about my fondness of Nutella and when my husband eyed my hot cocoa the teasing began. He said, “Well one time at Nutella camp.” I just laughed and immediately started thinking about Camp Nutella, would’nt that be fun!
This hot cocoa is so easy and it is really tasty. I’ve had the hazelnut hot chocolate mix but it just wasn’t as flavorful as the Nutella hot cocoa. Plus with a touch of cinnamon it is over the top. I like it so much that I probably won’t be making regular hot cocoa any time soon.
I will probably be packing this around in my coffee mug all winter long. What is your favorite winter time beverage?
