Hot Cocoa on a Stick
Yields 25 – 36 blocks (Depending on how big you cut them. I got 25 blocks.)
- ½ cup heavy cream
- 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk (1 1/4 cups)
- 3 cups semisweet chocolate (chopped chocolate bars or chips)
- 3/4 cup unsweetened baking chocolate
- wooden sticks (I used coffee stir sticks)
- Line an 8″ x 8″ pan with parchment paper. Heat the cream and condensed milk over low heat until steaming.
- Remove from the heat and add the chocolate; allow it to gently melt.
- After about 10 minutes, return the chocolate mixture to low heat to completely melt the chocolate. Whisk vigorously until the mixture is thick and shiny.
- Pour the chocolate mixture into the pan; shake the pan gently to level.
- Smooth surface with spatula.
- Set aside overnight to slowly set up. (I set mine on the counter overnight, then I popped it in the fridge the following morning to firm it up.) Run a knife around the edge of the pan and turn out onto a clean cutting surface. Slice into 1 ¼” cubes. Heat a knife in hot water and wipe dry before each cut, for smoothest cuts.
- Stick a wooden stick into the center of each block.
- Swirl into hot milk.
- Add marshmallows if desired. Enjoy!
