The Hot Chocolate Spoon Recipe is one of my favorite desserts in wintertime. I love that it’s a simple dessert, yet you can jazz it up with as many toppings as you like. This post will walk you through the steps of this easy recipe and then offer some different pairing suggestions for toppings. You might start your own two-dimensional spoon roll when you see how quick and easy this dessert is!
How do you use a chocolate spoon?
You use it the same way as you would any other spoon, of course. A chocolate spoon can eat various things, such as hot chocolate or desserts like ice cream.
How is it different than a regular spoon or a dessert fork?
A regular spoon is flat and balanced at an angle. It’s made to hold food in its bowl while you scoop it up and eat it with the spoon. A dessert fork is designed to cut soft foods, like delicate desserts and cake pieces. You use both of these utensils in the same way and with the same purpose. In a pinch, you can also use a regular spoon as a dessert fork by holding it at a slant and cutting into and eating your desired food item.

What is a hot chocolate spoon?
The hot chocolate spoon is a dessert often served at restaurants and coffee houses. It is also referred to as hot chocolate fudge or cream and is served warm in the wintertime. When it arrives at your table, it looks similar to a regular spoon, but you can tell the difference because it has a little dip in the middle of the bowl. The inside of the dipping plate holds some melted chocolate and other flavorings such as cinnamon or vanilla extract. The hot chocolate spoon is traditionally served with a stainless steel spoon and sometimes a little whipped cream.
The best part about this dessert is that you can add as many toppings and flavorings as you want. You can even add your twist to it by using different types or flavors of chocolate or cream.
