Hot cocoa is called snowman soup around here.  The grandsons have contests to see how many marshmallow can jump into the cocoa soup before puts a halt to their antics.

I used several different types of chocolate.  I melted chocolate chips for the semi sweet spoons.  I melted butterscotch chips for some.  The white chocolate I used a bar of Lindt chocolate I happened to have. I found the best and easiest way was to melt the chocolate in a coffee mug.  This way the chocolate was easier to dip into with the spoon.  And when I was done I just made a cup of hot chocolate to "clean" the residual chocolate out. By the way when I made chocolate covered pretzel rods I melted the chocolate in a tall iced tea glass.  Melted 3/4 of the chocolate then added the other 1/4 as a cheaters way to "temper" the chocolate. Using the tall glass I was able to hold onto pretzel rod and dip about 3/4 of it into the chocolate keeping my fingers from becoming chocolate covered..

It is never a problem when I get my fingers covered in chocolate, I just try to wait until I am done with my dipping spoons or pretzels.  I try to use up any extra by stirring in some nuts.  Then I drop the nuts by the spoon full onto parchment.  Then I get my fingers "dirty".!!

That is too funny!  My daughter in law has requested that I NOTlet the Grandsons make anything covered in chocolate as even with aprons on they still managed to get chocolate from head to toe and their Mom did not appreciate that.  Yes I had to clean the floor, chairs and walls but it was a learning experience that they will always remeber and it was in my kitchen.
