Quick, Easy, Tasty Christmas Gift..
We have another corking DIY recipe from Natasha from Nevie-Pie Cakes, building up to the Christmas Season!
This week its Hot Chocolate Spoons. I can tell you (,as being a lucky sod who was given some by Natasha herself last year…) that these are winners! Delicious, smooth, chocolatey heaven!!!
Here the very lovely Natasha tells us her secret recipe…
I can’t really call this a recipe, it is really just heating and stirring, but it is a quick and easy make for any last minute Christmas gifts you need to give.
Heat 150g of good quality dark chocolate until melted
Add 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
Stir in 75ml of boiling water, keep stirring until smooth
Spoon 3 small teaspoons onto an ice lolly mold (you should make about 8 from this amount)
Add a wooden spoon
Add some sprinkles and chill in the fridge until hard
Run the outside of the mold under hot water and gently release the chocolate, you may need to put the chocolate in the fridge for a few minutes to harden up again.
Package prettily and give as a gift to a very grateful recipient
Or add it to a mug of hot milk and drink yourself!
