Hot Chocolate on a Stick & Marshmallow Stars ★★

December 21, 2011 |  by  |  Blog, Christmas, DIY, Food for the Soul, Holidays

Only 3 more days until Christmas! I am sure you heard of  ‘hot chocolate on a stick’ before? It makes an awesome Christmas Treat and gift and is so easy to make!

 

Instructions:

 

❤  Melt the chocolate slowly (if it gets too hot, it will turn into a nasty mush, so be patient!)

❤  Once the chocolate is almost melted, take away from heat and stir in cacao, salt and sugar.

❤   The chocolate will get thicker, as thick as frosting.

❤   Scoop chocolate into a zip lock back and cut off the corner.

❤   Pipe the chocolate into your chocolate mold.

❤   Add a wooden stick or spoon.

❤   Add candy/peppercorn/chili.

❤   Let cool off in the fridge.

 

 

 

Marshmallow Stars: 

Cut a stripe out of the aluminum pizza plate and shape a star or heart.

Flatten a marshmallow (either with a rolling pin or glass or your hand).

Lay homemade cutter on to the flat marshmallow and cut out.

 

*I discovered later, you can also use scissors to cut out the star.

 

 

Punch a hole in your stars and run Bakers Twine through it & attach it to your sticks or cup.

 

 

What else can you do with ice cube trays:

…heart shaped sugar cubes- adorable!

snow globe soaps- so cute!

…a jewelry box- practical.

ice cherries- very cool!

 

…and they are floating ;-)

 I hope you are all enjoying your holidays! Can’t wait for Christmas? So can’t I!
