DIY | hot chocolate spoons1.15.2016
I don't need much encouragement to whip up a batch of hot chocolate but these stirrers are so much fun and the perfect way to use up left over chocolate from christmas..
for some reason I feel way less guilty about eating a bar of chocolate in liquid form? throw in cream and marshmallows.. now that's my kind of beverage party.
so less talk more (calorific) action.. here's how to make them.
first melt your chocolate (in a bowl over a pan of simmering water if you're old school like me!)
once liquid pour your chocolate into an ice cube mould. when it starts to set slightly place the spoons into the chocolate- check they're not going to fall over then leave to harden. at this point I recommend licking the bowl clean of any remaining chocolate!
once the chocolate is set you can pop them out of the silicone moulds.
you can decorate them by dipping them in more melted chocolate then rolling in nuts, peanut brittle or sprinkles! or just leave them naked like mine..
heat up some milk, pop a chocolate spoon into your mug and stir to melt. I finish off with a healthy serving of cream, yum.
my only warning is that these are slightly addictive, be prepared to make more than one batch!
ps. how many hot chocolates is too many? (asking for a friend.)
