Homemade Chocolate Goodness

So I love to make stuff from scratch it just tastes so much better most of the time. When I read about giving Hot chocolate as a gift I thought "Hell No I want that for myself"!
But seeing as I am so selfless I made them as gifts and kept a lot for myself. See sharing is fun.
I made Chocolate spoons to go with the Hot Chocolate mix.
Just melt chocolate using the double broiler method or microwave whichever is easier for you. Use plastic spoons and dip them in the melted Chocolate lay them on a cookie sheet, wait a couple of minutes for it to harden a little and sprinkle some candies on it.

Then wrap them in foil with a bow and gift them together with the mix.

Hot chocolate Mix
665 g dry milk powder
450 g sifted confectioners sugar
125 g unsweetened cocoa powder
150 g powdered non-dairy creamer ( flavored is awesome)

For it to get the nice powdery look you have to sift everything or it will look clumpy. This recipe makes quite a lot, I needed 4 gifts I got five plus some extra for myself.
I would only mix this with Milk but that is because I think mixing it with water is disgusting and should be against the law.
I used about 4 big whopping spoons in a mug of milk and some whip cream on top. It was divine let me tell you so have fun making this and forget about the sugar it's Christmas and it doesn't count everybody knows that.
