Nutella Wine Hot Chocolate

Hi friends . Its still chilly weather in Bay area and I am enjoying every bit of it ,sitting by the fire with a cozy blanket and a warm drink. When it comes to warm drinks, Hot chocolate tops the list for me . My dear friend Rachel ,who loves Hot chocolate a lil too much gave me the idea to make this drink. We both enjoy wine tasting and all wine related things. And come to think of it , i have been to several Vineyards in Napa with wine and chocolate pairing and its the best . So instead of using chocolate chips, i used Nutella because i like the hazel nut flavor which goes really well with wine. Red wine intensifies the chocolate flavor and a  Merlot or Pinot Noir works well. I used BV Coastal Estates 2013 Merlot . Its full bodied with notes of dark berry,plum and Mocha when mixed with milk , nutella and cocoa powder turns into a thick ,creamy , rich  deliciousness . 

So all you Nutella , Wine and Hot chocolate lovers this is the Drink for you. Happy Friday . Do try it and leave me a note .Recipe below.
