I wanted to share a fun way to make hot cocoa…on a stick! As an added bonus, it comes with a printable. DOUBLE bonus…it makes a wonderful gift! And TRIPLE bonus…it requires no baking!
If you like all things hot chocolate, there is another fun recipe for Reindeer Hot Cocoa. Or you could make a hot cocoa station too! And there’s even a post on how to make hot chocolate ornaments. One more gift idea – make a hot chocolate gift kit and attach a cute printable.
Hot Cocoa Recipe
Start with 2 cups of chocolate chips. Use milk, dark, white or semi-sweet chocolate. Place in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave at 70% power for 1 minute. Stir. Return at 100% power for 15 seconds. Stir and repeat until completely melted.
If using a flavor, add 1 tsp. extract and mix well.
Insert disposable spoons and refrigerate until hardened, about 30-40 minutes.
Remove from mold.
One of my favorite variations is a Mint Dark Chocolate, topped off with an Andes mint!
There are so many great combinations! Insert a candy cane or crushed peppermint candies for a festive holiday treat!
To use, stir into 1 cup of hot milk. Or package with marshmallows to give away.
Tie it up with this cute printable and include a mug for an adorable gift for a teacher, co-worker or neighbor.
