Rusty has a spectacular aura aboutRusty has a spectacular aura about
Chocolates (chocolate candies) = bombones (a single piece = bombón)
A cup of hot chocolate = Una taza de chocolate
Chocolate bar (like Snickers) = chocolatina
Chocolate bar (scored with pieces you break off and eat) = tableta de chocolate (individual squares = onzas o pastillas de la tableta)
Milk chocolate = chocolate con leche

Some of these words are regional. Check with the locals to know what their words are.

I have to say hot chocolate is very different from the Spanish chocolate a la taza that we eat with churros. Our version is a lot thicker and a real no-no for dieters, whereas a cup of Ovaltine has less than 40 cals.
Lovely avatar, Rusty.

The candy made chocolate is chocolate as in Spanish Chocolate es chocolate dulce de chocolate.

I think that it should be chocolate's candy.

If I'm in a mistake please you are free correcting me.

Hello, Maria José. I'm Spanish too, but this is the first time I've read the word "Ovaltine". What is it? A brand of chocolate?

Ovaltine es una marca de chocolate en polvo. You pour the powder into milk, sitr and, voilà, you have chocolate milk.
