Hot chocolate on a stick
As winter arrived this weekend on the smallholding I went and look for the Hot-Chocolate-on-a-stick recipe. I’m definitely more of a summer person and a cup of hot chocolate accompanied me as I said goodbye to summer for the next four months.
I found this recipe last winter via Pinterest on the web. I used mini muffin cases to set the hot chocolate into, I won’t do that again as we had a piece of paper, here and there in the hot chocolate. Ice cube trays or chocolate moulds are much more effective. And don’t forget to play around with different flavourings, I love adding a bit of Stroh Rum and then a little bit more for that extra warmth.
|125 ml (½ c)||Heavy Cream|
|1 can||Condensed Milk|
|3 cups||60% Cocoa Chocolate, chopped or in chips|
|1 cup||Unsweetened Chocolate|
|To taste||Flavouring like liquor, vanilla, hazelnut essence etc.|
|Wooden or Lollipop sticks|
- Heat the cream and sweetened condensed milk over medium-low heat until it starts steaming, stirring periodically.
- Remove from heat and add chocolate. Stir and let sit for 10 minutes, then put back on medium-low heat and stir with a whisk until chocolate is completely melted and shiny. (At this point you could add some flavouring…vanilla, hazelnut, peppermint)
- Pour chocolate into prepared ice cube trays or chocolate moulds. Working one cube at a time, insert a stick and place a marshmallow onto the top of the cube. Set aside until moulds are completely dry.
- Once all cubes are dry, remove carefully from the moulds. Wrap pretty and store in an airtight container.
