Sometimes the simple things are just in order. Everybody knows that Valentine’s Day is the holiday of chocolate,so these spoons fit perfectly into the categories of:

Simple.

Chocolate-y.

Romantic.

Vegan Chocolate-Covered Spoons

{A fancier way to make a cup of hot chocolate}

Perfect to romantically serve to your loved one while you snuggle with each other next to the fireplace. Too bad it’s literally in the mid 70’s here though, otherwise this would come in handy for the winter weather that is supposed to be here. But hey, I am not complaining by any means! Dining outside for dinner at night, taking walks down to the beach mid-afternoon, and wearing flip flops throughout the duration of the day always makes me so grateful to live in California. Have I done a sufficient enough job rubbing it in yet?

But it is tasty, none-the-less. So maybe this recipe doesn’t get a thumbs up with the final product in terms of presentation, but the taste factor is there. You can always cover it up with some soy whipped cream or top with some Dandies marshmallows.

This last shot is just to get a last look at that cup.

I love these mugs. I got one for “C” and “G.” They make me happy. {On an entirely separate subject, come back tomorrow for an update on my raw food adventure… which is also something else that makes me extremely happy}
