Santa brought me something extra specially chocolatey in my stocking this year: Hot Chocolate Spoons from the Mountain Nugget Chocolate Company in Rossland BC. Boxing Day seemed the perfect time to try them out:

Just one of the outrageously good offerings from Mountain Nugget. The burnt toffee bar is another favourite.

We decided to melt the chocolate in the milk on the stovetop as I wasn't convinced it would melt by just stirring them into a cup of hot milk. They did melt pretty quickly though. We combined one milk and one dark which was delicious.

Extraordinarily delicious. Our cups probably held 8-9oucnes of milk, which seemed perfect. A little less milk and it would have been very rich indeed.
