Hotchocspoons: Hot Chocolate on a Spoon

Hotchocspoon-1

Hotchocspoons from the Chocolate Company in Europe are the perfect hot chocolate-making device: 50 grams of chocolate are melted down and then solidified with a nice, big wooden spoon inside for convenient stirring. They claim that they come in over 50 varieties, including ones that include a whisky or amaretto shot (genius), strawberry and pink peppercorn, a "kids only" with Smarties (similar to M&Ms), white chocolate, an 85% dark chocolate, and even a seaweed flavor. There are Chocolate Company shops in Luxembourg City, Aachen, Germany, and ’s-Hertogenbosch and Maastricht in the Netherlands, or you can buy them online, 20 hotchocspoons starting at €50.

    This is adorable. My only caveat is the plastic pipette for the amaretto. Is that a toxic plastic, a 3,6 or 7, or something more benign. I'd prefer a liquor-filled chocolate. Come to think of it, I'd prefer Frangelico...

    These hot chocolate on a stick/spoon are apparently pretty easy to make yourself.

  3. Dan

    had one before, rubbish

  4. Victoria

    Smarties are NOT the same as M&M's we have both, smarties are smaller than M&M's and taste completeley different.

  5. Rei

    M&M's and Smarties are very different.

  6. Miller

    Victoria, this is a European thing. Not the same candies. Don't be daft.

  7. Sasha

    Smarties aren't even chocolate like M&Ms...! They are a tart sugar candy that come in little wrapped tubes.

    Oh my god, Smarties in AMERICA are tart little candies.
    This is European, they have a chocolate candy called Smarties that's similar to M&M's. Completely different thing.

  9. Matt

    Smarties are pretty awesome though. But M&M's are better, especially peanut ones. Now I want one of them big bags of M&Ms... I hate you guys =P

    Smarties rule,M&Ms are a hollow sham and should not be mentioned in polite(or impolite)company.

    buy these every time i go to prague, just had one over the newspaper. completely amazing.

    Smarties, outside is chalkier than M and M's inside the chocolate is far more waxy. They are not nearly as good as M and M's.

    These look amazing! Anyone know how to make these from home? Trial and error would be an option I guess, but if anyone knows a more direct route to the same end, please do share! :-)

    As for the Smarties/Smarties/M&Ms issue, I think I can clarify. I live in Canada and we have all three. M&Ms are made with milk chocolate with a candy coating and are round. As for Smarties, what we call Smarties are very similar to M&M's. They are also made of milk chocolate with a candy coating, and are also round, but flatter than M&Ms. And yes, there is a very distinct taste between the two. These Smarties are made by Nestle. (M&Ms are made by Mars in Canada - used to be Effem Foods.) The other Smarties candy, made by Ce De Candy, Inc. are the tart little sugar candies that come in a roll. In Canada we call them Rockets. (Whoever dreamed up that name, I can't imagine what they were thinking). I knew they were called Smarties in the US, but I'm not sure about the names used in other countries.

    Hope that helps!

    gee, i'd rather make my own, it does seem like it'd be simple. im guessing it's just melted chocolate with little surprises in it. or would they be using chocolate bark? anyways, that'd be the cheaper way to go.

  15. I just want a tray of each...to chew right off the spoon. Screw the hot chocolate!

  16. Evo

    They look so tasty! Would make great gifts for chocoholics.
