This experience has been a fun one, making a hot chocolate master piece is not as easy as it sounds. Shaving the "hard" chocolate was all but apparent, it was difficult just to shave the chocolate. Pouring the boiling water into the cups without burning yourself is unyeilding, and competely and utterly painful. What we would do different is not let Cameron mix the hot chocolate because he does a poor job, secondly get some softer chocolate because it was a tough job just to shave the chocolate.
