Spira’s distinctive form came from new chocolate extrusion technology. And rumour has it that some Spira customers used to bite the ends of the hollow chocolate ‘straw’ and then use it to drink hot beverages, melting the inside. So wrong it’s right!
I made a chocolate sponge with buttercream and jam filling then added chocolate fingers and smarties and tied 4 straws together coated in melted chocolate and stuck smarties to it then once dry and set pit into centre of cake and attached smartie tube
~Coffee, chilled (so it won’t melt the cup) mixed with a little Bailey’s Irish Cream, (the cream part) ~Whipped cream mixed with a tablespoon of Godiva White Chocolate Liqueur, (the dreamy swirl of white cocoa) ~ Choco Straws from World Market~ chocolate straws ($4.99 for a box of 18) ~ Chocolate Curls to garnish Sip your coffee underneath the whipped cream layer thru your chocolate straw~ or throw caution to the wind~ shoot your cup then eat your straw & your cup!
