Video: Chocolate in Baby Sign Language

Signing: Chocolate is signed by making your dominant hand into a C-shape. Take your non-dominant hand and lay it flat with palm down in front of your body. Take the C-shape and move it in a circle, on top of the palm of your non-dominant hand. You can remember the sign, because it looks like you are stirring a pot of gooey melted chocolate (and C, stands for chocolate).

Usage: Teaching signs for treats like chocolate and candy, are highly motivated signs and are usually learned quickly. However, they can result in lots of unwanted requests for these treats. To turn down a request, we find it best to acknowledge the sign by saying, “you want chocolate.” But, then firmly deny the request. “But, we can’t have chocolate today.”
