  1. Melt chocolate using the microwave. Chop the chocolate, and put it in a bowl. Run the microwave in 30 second increments, stirring in between. Finish the heating when most, but not all, of the chocolate is melted. Stir the chocolate continuously until it is smooth, shiny, and completely melted.
  2. Add sugar, and stir until completely combined and smooth. It will have the consistency of a thick frosting
  3. Pipe the chocolate into your chocolate mold. Add a wooden or plastic coffee spoon, and place in the fridge until you are going to use them.
  4. To enjoy this hot chocolate spoons, pour 100 ml boiling milk in a cup, place a spoon on it, and stir until dissolved.


  • Chocolate might look ugly once removed from your mold, since we have not tempered chocolate. If this occurs, you can dip the cubes into melted chocolate for a shinier finish. You can find here the printable labels I have used to decorate the spoons.
  • You might substitute 20 g sugar and add 20 g unsweetened cocoa powder for a stronger taste, or 20 g cornstarch for a thicker hot chocolate.
