Hot Chocolate on a Stick

Hot Chocolate on a Stick (Hearts)

Hot Chocolate is a favorite drink in our house during the winter, especially on snowy days like we’re having today.  We will drink all kinds of hot cocoa, from the cheap Nestle and Swiss Miss, to the gourmet Ghirardelli. We love it in all forms.

Hot Chocolate on a Stick (Hearts)

I think I have found my favorite hot chocolate option in this recipe, Hot Chocolate on a Stick.  It is such a great perk that these will keep in a sealed container for one year, and all I have to do is warm up some milk or cream, and stir in my stick.  It’s a creamy, chocolaty treat…no marshmallows needed!

To celebrate Valentine’s Day, I made heart shaped cocoas and will be giving them as gifts.  Just pick up this Wilton 12-cavity heart mold (hint: it’s only $9.99 at Target and will probably be discounted after V-day).  The rest of the batch I made in regular ice cube trays, which also work out perfectly.  There is no need to line the mold with plastic wrap, or spray them with anything.  The chocolate easily pops out of the tray when hardened.

Pick up some favor bags at your local craft store and wrap the chocolate sticks individually to give them away for Valentine’s Day.  They are also the perfect addition to your holiday gift basket this coming year.  It’s never too late to plan ahead!

  10. I am unable to get the hot chocolate on a stick recipe via the “Giver’s Log” website. Can someone please post the recipe.

    • Hi Myra. Amberle from Giver’s Log requested that I link to her recipe instead of posting it. I made the change yesterday and just checked it now where it worked for me. I tried another update to the link, so hopefully it works for you now. I’ll shoot you an email as well.

      Thanks!
