When the cold weather starts rolling in, you can bundle up in a knit blanket, grab a good book, and settle into a cozy afternoon. Better yet, you can curl up to a warm cup of a steamy and sweet hot toddy.

The flavors in this hot toddy are very Nutella-like, while the Frangelico (and maybe the bourbon if you're feeling crazy) warms you right up. Grab the ingredients, get to brewing, and stay warm this winter season. 

Hazelnut-Chocolate Hot Toddy
(Makes 2 servings)

2 cups very hot water
3 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder & additional for garnish
3 Tablespoons sugar
½ cup Frangelico liqueur
Whipped cream
Bourbon (optional)

1. In a saucepan set over medium heat, add the hot water, 3 tablespoons of cocoa, and the sugar. Stir until the sugar dissolves and the mixture is hot.

2. Remove from the heat and stir in the Frangelico. Divide between 2 mugs and top with a dollop of whipped cream and a dusting of cocoa. If you're feeling crazy, add a shot of bourbon to each mug.
