I’m always on the lookout for new crafty things to try, especially when it appeals to my sweet tooth! So when I stumbled across this recipe for hot chocolate on a stick I knew I’d struck gold.
If you’re hot chocolate obsessed (like me) then this recipe is for YOU!
With the temperature dropping every day I thought these would be the perfect mid-winter treat. A lack of self-control led me to discover that they even taste good by themselves, but they’re definitely best when enjoyed as a big steaming mug of hot chocolate (with a couple of marshmallows thrown in).
|250||gm||Dark Chocolate (I used Nestle dark chocolate melts)|
|1/2||cup||Icing Sugar, sifted|
|You also need an ice tray and wooden ice block sticks. Fun shaped ice trays such as hearts result in really cute hot chocolates on a stick.|
2. Add the cocoa and icing sugar and stir until combined. The mixture should feel quite thick like icing.
3. Using a teaspoon carefully place the chocolate mixture into the ice tray ‘cubes’. Tap or jiggle the tray to make sure the mixture is distributed nicely.
4. Place a stick in the middle of each ‘cube’ and put the tray in the fridge to set.
5. Once they have set melt the remaining chocolate. Dip the hot chocolates into the melted chocolate so the ‘cubes’ are completely covered.
6. Store in an air tight container. If you are giving some as a gift try wrapping
the ‘cube’ end in cellophane and putting a cute instruction label on the end of the stick.
To make the hot chocolate from these all you need to do is heat up a mug of milk (or cream) and stir it in until it has dissolved.
