Hot choc spoons.

I promised to share a quick fudge recipe in this post. Oh, and did I tell you that these fudges are magical? You place them in hot milk and it magically melts to make hot chocolate. Lush for the bitter coldness and the snow that has just arrived.

I had planned to make hot choc spoons early before Christmas but never got round to it until about a week before. With no double cream left to make the original fudges I hoped to, I somehow landed on the back of a condensed milk tin. *BOOM* I see a future for the chocolate spoons.

And there is no catch to these delightful treats. They only consist of 4 ingredients that you would have on hand already and involves no baking whatsoever. I don't see an excuse in these to be honest...

It has become part of my routine to come home from walks in the snow, and just pop a choc spoon into my mug. perfect.

For the Christmas spoons, I had varied different toppings to make each piece a unique one. I had a mix of sprinkles, marshmallow, choc chips and cookie crumble. Oh the excitement of sugar.
