    OK, if your OH is anything like mine then anything that could be described as a kitchen utensil / tool is not a very good idea for a Xmas pressie!!!

    A piece of jewelery (diamonds optional) would be a better bet for an appreciative missus...

    One big enough pot / pan ( whatever you want to call it )

    Hot chocolate makers - Xmas present idea-beginner-large-pot-540.jpg

    Enough Milk - cook until ready on oven top ( stove )

    Done :-)

    At least for warm milk, maybe melt some chocolate and mix together ??

    Not sure if that would have the same effect lol

    Something like below - obviously beaten to it lol

    1 x tin of Fussells Condensed Milk
    1 x 150ml of preferred spirit - rum or brandy

    Melt the bar of chocolate in a large bowl over simmering water
    Add the condensed milk, stirring as you add it
    Add the cream, stirring as you add it
    Add the alcohol, stirring as you add it
    Pour into a nice big tall mug or glass
    Break up Cadbury's Flakes and sprinkle liberally over the top
    Hide somewhere where partner / kids / other relatives can't find you and demand to have some whilst you drink it. You'll be on the ceiling and drunk at the same time with all that sugar and alcohol but who cares. Don't suggest you do it at work though.

    Because of the long hours she works, she doesn't spend much time in the kitchen, but she does like her hot chocolate of an evening.

    I was given some very good advice from a friend when I got married - always buy your wife a present that you were going to get anyway

    My darling has had some very nice Woks, plates, irons and one year she got a new tumble drier

    Good grief - is that a serious recipe? I would've thought it would be too thick to drink and clarty to boot??

    So Mr. Rad, you've seen through my cunning plan. I believe my pets need feeding; would you care to join them for lunch?

    Yep - at that rate she'll be a widow soon and inherit everything.

    I'm sure the jury will be sympathetic.
