Hi friends! I am FREEEEEEEEZING here in the midwest. Just freezing. One of my favorite things to do when I am cold is warm up with a little hot cocoa! My kids love it too! But sometimes it can be a mess to let my little ones make their own hot chocolate. Powder chocolate + spilled milk = sticky mess. Am I right? So today I decided to whip up a batch of DIY hot chocolate on a Stick! This makes hot cocoa time extra fun and less messy too! Win win! Follow along for all the details so you can make your own DIY hot chocolate on a stick! Seriously, can you get any cuter? Or any tastier!? Yum!
- Chocolate Candy Wafers.
- Silicone Mold or Baking Tray.
- Darice Paper Straws.
- Nonpareils Sprinkles (optional).
- Darice Baker’s Twine.
- Microwavable Melting Tray (optional).
I began by filling my melting tray with candy wafers. I believe you can fit about 1/2 a bag in one melting tray. If you do not have a melting tray, simply place your chocolate in a microwave safe dish. Place it in the microwave at 50% power and melt at 20 second intervals, stirring inbetween until it is melted completely. Be careful not to overheat it though.
My kids especially love having sprinkles in their hot chocolate and a pretty paper straw to drink it with too! Try these white hot chocolate mason jar Christmas gifts for another option for fun cocoa gifts or favors.
