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!
These DIY hot chocolate on a stick treats would make a perfect addition to a hot cocoa bar this winter or a great favor or gift!
- 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.
To make hot cocoa, simply heat up 1 cup of milk and stir the hot cocoa on a stick in the warmed milk until it is completely melted.
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.
