Spiked Hazelnut Hot Cocoa

Hazelnut, chocolate and vodka? Yes, please!

Last night, after a really long day with my 3 year-old, I gave myself some Pinterest therapy and came across a drink that I couldn’t resist making for me and my husband. It was blissful and relaxing. Just me and my hubby, and the screams from our daughter upstairs. It turned out okay though. I made another batch and soon we were able to tune out our tantrumy child and she eventually fell asleep. Enjoy!
