Hazelnut Hot Chocolate

A good cup of hot chocolate is a must need for everyone.  Especially those of us who live in colder climates, where a hot drink is needed to stave off the chills of the day.  This recipe is basically hot chocolate on overdrive.  A rich, Nutella-y, chocolatey drink fit for any king or queen.  The espresso powder gives the drink a little more character and depth without being to overwhelming.  The Baileys shot can be a nice addition as well for an evening nightcap.
