Thermodynamics

Whether it is possible to have different energy values of two objects in thermal equilibrium with each other at same temperature?

Suppose we have a 10 kg mass and a 1 kg mass, both at room temperature. Both are separately heated till they reach the same temp say 60 deg. Now if we bring them in contact there is no flow of heat from one to the other as both are at the same temperature. However we can see that more energy has been supplied to the 10 kg block to raise it to the same temp. Hence we can say that it has more energy, but both are in thermal equilibrium.
