Mandel: Heiße Schokolade

On my last day in Munich, Germany, I bought myself a pack of chocolate at the international airport. The unique packaging of the chocolate caught my attention. Inside the plastic wrap was a light-colored wooden spoon enveloped by a chunk of chocolate. There were two flavors available, which were almond and cinnamon. As a person who doesn't fancy cinnamon that much, I decided to go with the almond.

It was drawn on the back of the packaging about how to consume the chocolate. All you need is, other than the chocolate itself, is a glass of hot milk. You only have to dip the chocolate inside the milk and stir until the chocolate melt.

It was raining at that time, when I decided to make myself a glass of hot milk. I unwrapped the chocolate from its' packaging and dip it into the tongue-burning white substance. I stirred and stirred and stirred until the almond flavored chocolate melted and the white milk turned chocolate. To be honest, it was one of the best hot chocolate I have ever drank. It was creamy, hot, had a hint of almond, chocolaty, and super fattening.. but I don't care, because it was delicious!
