Hot Chocolate on a Stick

HCoaS 02 Unwrapped

I got a set of owl mugs recently, they are all similar looking except different colors and I love the orange one… isn’t it cute? This batch of hot chocolate on a stick was it’s first use. This stuff is like a super rich fudge, and all though the original recipe says you can just eat it, I personally found it difficult to get though one small portion. It is overwhelmingly chocolatey as a snack (yes, such a thing does exist!) and I think it’s much better as a drink.

Ingredients

  • 1/2c/4 fl oz heavy cream
  • 1 x 14 oz can of sweetened condensed milk
  • 3c/18 oz semisweet chocolate chocolate chips
  • 3/4c/4 oz unsweetened baking chocolate, chopped
  • 49 popsicle sticks
  • 1c cocoa powder (optional)
  • 49 baggies & strips of ribbon (optional)

Instructions

  1. Line a square 8″x8″ pan with parchment paper.
  2. In a large microwavable jug or bowl, whisk together the heavy cram and sweetened condensed milk.
  3. Heat in the microwave on high for 3 minutes, or until just before boiling point (do not boil).
  4. Remove from the microwave and stir in all the chocolate, return to the microwave and cook on high for 2 minutes.
  5. Remove from the microwave and let sit 5 minutes at room temperature, then stir again to make sure the chocolate is completely melted.
  6. Pour into the prepared pan, cover, then let sit in a cool place at room temperature for 24 hours.
  7. After 24 hours, turn out onto a new piece of parchment, score 7 x 6 to make 49 pieces and then cut with a large sharp knife.
  8. Poke a popsicle sticks into each square and then dip into cocoa power (if using).
  9. Place each Hot Chocolate on a Stick serving into a small plastic baggie and secure with ribbon or place them all in an airtight container.

To use, stir into 6 fluid ounces of hot liquid. Use milk for best results, but you can also use water with a splash of cream, or even coffee.

Makes 49 Servings – Store in a cool place, keeps up to 2 weeks.

HCoaS 03 Stir In

My new owl mug is very large, so I only filled it halfway with hot water. After the hot chocolate on a stick was completely dissolved I added a splash of Mocha Mix and it tasted very nice… though it tastes much better made in hot milk. The picture below is pre-Mocha Mix addition.
