Nutella Hot Chocolate

Nutella Hot Chocolate

I just love hot chocolate in winter!  Usually I go for a little milk and the powdered mix.  (It’s simple. It’s good!) But here lately I’ve been wanting to experiment with a little Nutella.  With just two ingredients (milk and Nutella) you can make a perfectly delicious cup of Nutella Hot Chocolate:

Or for something a little more sweet and fun, we just add a little whipped cream and sugar sprinkles!

But since I wanted to make a nice presentation for you guys, I decided this hot chocolate needed a little something extra.  Enter the chocolate wafers and Valentine Peeps.  The folks at the Peeps company recently sent me an assortment of their Valentine products:

I’ve been trying some of these out and they are delicious!  For the hot chocolate, I made a little skewer of Vanilla Creme Marshmallow Peeps and Strawberry Creme Marshmallow Peep!  They were a great treat to go with the hot chocolate.  Check out the recipe!
