I find it odd that the Hotel Chocolate hot chocolate machine makes only one cup of chocolate, although two cups are provided when you buy the machine. So, if you are sharing, you and the other person have only a half a cup each. If you're not sharing, this doesn't apply, of course. I just thought it was a funny notion to give two cups that could not be filled. Their boxes of chocolates have plastic trays. I prefer little frilly paper cups for each chocolate, but perhaps the plastic tray is for shipping reasons. It looks cheap.
