I hope you’ve enjoyed the party hop, handmade holiday edition, as much as I have! Here’s my contribution to the party – hot chocolate on a stick! It’s a known fact that everything tastes better on a stick. Wrap these festive sticks in cellophane, tie with a ribbon and you’ve got yourself an instant gift to give the neighbors or your co-workers that they’ll love. Simply add these hot chocolate sticks to hot milk or water and allow them to melt before enjoying.
8oz Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
3 tbsp Cocoa
8 tbsp Confectioners Sugar
Silicon Ice Cube or Baby Food Mold
Peppermint Candy (1-2 per hot chocolate stick)
Melt chocolate in microwave in 30 second increments, stirring in between, until completely melted. Mix in cocoa and confectioners sugar. Spoon mixture into a piping bag and squeeze into a silicon ice cube or baby food mold. Place a stick in each compartment. Place peppermint candy in a freezer bag and crush with a rolling pin, leaving big chunks. Place candy chunks on top of the chocolate and around the stick. Allow to harden overnight before removing from mold. Enjoy with a hot cup of milk or water.
