I always keep a pack Nunu's Hot Chocolate Shavings ($15) in my pantry because: 1) they satisfy a good winter hot chocolate craving; you never know when the snow and wind will hit in this crazy weather, and 2) the chocolate shavings are just as addictive when devoured plain, spooned up straight from the bag. The latter method is how I polish off the majority of this package; those paper-thin semi-sweet chocolate shards melt in your mouth, making for an ideal if unorthodox snack. As for the hot chocolate, it works well with either all water, all milk, or a mix of both. But don't forget a splash of warmed heavy cream. Makes all the difference in the world.
