Nutella Hot Chocolate

I’m just going to go straight to the point and say this is possibly one of the best hot chocolate recipes ever. A soul-warming, melted Nutella hot chocolate with creamy marshmallows that turn to a thick frothy cream. This hot chocolate is dangerous and you’ll probably end up having more than necessary.

The best part is it takes minutes to make. Seriously. It was even easy for me (OK well it was on the second attempt) and I’m someone who should be kept away from kitchen appliances at all times.

Psst. Is anyone else in love with the cat mug?!
