Hot Chocolate on a stick
[makes +/- 10]
225 g milk chocolate chips [you can use what ever you would like… most people prefer bittersweet]
1/4 cup cocoa
1/2 cup powdered sugar
a pinch of salt
*Sift sugar & cocoa in bowl / set aside
*Melt the chocolate until 3/4 is melted …au bain marie (bowl above hot water is fine)
*Remove from heat and continue to stir until all of the chips are melted
*Add the sugar/cocoa mix & salt
*Then using a piping bag or a ziploc bag fill the ice cube trays
[I also use plastic shot glasses]
Let the mixture cool of a bit and then add the sticks. [keep in mind your mug size when deciding which length of sticks to use]
Place them now in the fridge. I let them set there a few minutes then check that the sticks are still straight. I repeat this until I am sure they will not fall over.
Then heat milk and make some hot chocolate.
I sometimes add cinnamon, espresso powder, chili powder & flavouring such as mint or vanilla.
Marshmallows can be added into the trays as well.
To give them as a gift place them in plastic gift bags with some marshmallows.
You can also add flags to the sticks to make them more festive.
