I wanted to have a craft project involving chocolate, so it's a good thing we received a ton of those last Christmas. I read somewhere on the internet that you can make your own hot chocolate... on a stick. It's a fun concept that you should try!
You will need:
- Silicone ice cube tray
- Chocolate (dark chocolate, milk chocolate... whatever you have there)
- Paper straw
First, melt the chocolate in a double boiler. Once it's completely melted, pour the chocolate on to your silicone ice cube tray. Shake the ice cube tray so that the trapped air underneath would rise. Then let it cool for a couple of minutes.
Once it's cooled, place the paper straw on each cube. It doesn't have to be a paper straw, by the way. You can use popsicle sticks, plastic spoons, or any kind of stirrer.
Next step is to decorate your hot chocolate! I used sprinkles just to add color. You can add small marshmallows, or crushed candy cane for a minty flavor.
Then wait for it to harden. It takes about one night for it to completely harden. When it's ready, remove the chocolate from the silicone tray. Pour hot milk on a cup then stir the hot chocolate until it's completely melted.
I hope you guys try it and let me know what you think! :)
