Last Last Minute Gift Idea

Hello! Ok, it's the day before Christmas in Germany. Here we celebrate on Christmas Eve. Tomorrow is the big day. And I have one last last minute gift idea for you. It's so easy and soo yummy. Get out some chocolate and spoons and make hot chocolate on a spoon:




If you are a real chocolatier, don't read on. Because I like to use my microwave to melt chocolate. Disgraceful. But so very convenient! For the one you see above, I used dark chocolate, melted it and poured it into the small baking forms for tiny cupcakes. Then I threw in a cube of nougat and stuck in the spoon. It works well with a popsicle stick, too. Another version I made was with white chocolate and a lot of christmassy spices. For those who like their chocolate with marshmallows, just use small ones and throw them into the chocolate like I did with the nougat. Mmh, I had to try if these are good enough to give away:






They are! To make your delicious hot chocolate, put the spoon into a cup of hot milk. Wait half a minute. Then stir until the chocolate is melted. Then use a small beater (I have one to froth my milk for my latte) and whisk well. Now top with whipped cream and sprinkle with brittle. Yum!!!


Ok, that's it. And now:






Enjoy the time with your loved ones!!! I'll be back soon.


Hugs and Love,
Vanessa
