Handmade Hot Chocolate Sticks
240g/8.5oz Dark Chocolate (70% cocoa content)
60g/2.1oz Icing Sugar
60g/2.1oz Cocoa Powder
+ Cake Pop Sticks
+ Chocolate Mold / Ice Cube Tray
+ Tiny Wafer Snowflakes (optional)
Melt the chocolate over double boiler or in a microwave (make sure not to burn the chocolate). Remove from the heat and stir in the sugar & cocoa powder.
Mix until all well blended. At this point the chocolate mix will be pretty thick. This is OK. Using 2 spoons, fill each mold with chocolate. Make sure there are no air bubbles by pressing down especially around the edges.
To get an even look on the surface, dip your spoon in hot water and with the back of the spoon smoothen the chocolate.
Insert the sticks and transfer in the fridge. Let it chill for several hours (best overnight).
Optional: to make these hot chocolate sticks more festive, glue tiny wafer snowflakes onto each side. Glue it with some melted chocolate and put it back in the fridge until set.
Pop it into a cup of hot milk. Let it be for 2 minutes before stirring until it has melted completely.
