Thank You so much to The Hungry Housewife (Leslie) for letting me pass this wonderful recipe along to you guys!  I am a huge fan of her blog.  When I saw this recipe..I immediately ran into the kitchen and tried it out.  Hope you guys enjoy this yummy concoction as much as I did!  I have also included the recipe for her homemade whipped cream.  Yuuuummmmm.... :-)

Nutella Hot Chocolate

1 cup milk (I used whole)
2 1/2 Tbsp Nutella
1 Tbsp cocoa
Tiny pinch of salt

In a small sauce pan over medium heat, whisk together all ingredients until well blended and hot.
Pour into cup or mug and top with whipped cream.

Homemade Whipped Cream

1 cup heavy whipping cream
2 Tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Place a medium bowl and beaters from your electric mixer in the freezer for 10 minutes (this helps the whipped cream stiffen faster)
Pour all ingredients into chilled bowl and start to beat.  Start off slow and gradually work your way up to high speed.  It will be done when it has the consistancy of...whipped cream.  Do not over beat.
