Hot chocolate is just the perfect warm and satisfying drink to enjoy over those long winter months.
It can also be enjoyed practically any time – whether for breakfast, as a mid-morning or lunchtime drink – or later in the day, for tea or just before you go to bed.
And the basic recipe can be spiced up by adding a hint of nutmeg, ground pepper or cinnamon.
One great way to make Hot Chocolate that little big extra special is by making it with Nutella or any other hazelnut spread.
Ah Nutella! If you’ve never come across this gift of chocolate goodness, then indulge me (literally) with a few words by way of explanation. For many chocoholics, Nutella is the best thing since sliced bread. Actually, Nutella is great on sliced bread but that’s another recipe!
