Hot Chocolate on a Stick

When I ran across this recipe in the delightful “Giver’s Log“, I knew immediately that I would be making this. If ever there were a day to try it, it is definitely today. I woke up to a Winter Wonderland, and I can’t suppress the squeak of excitement every time I peer out the window.

It’s perfect hot chocolate weather.

 

 

You’ll need a good quality chocolate with a high fat content. I’ve found that fondue chocolate (label must say REAL CHOCOLATE) is ideal for this endeavor. I used a bit of espresso powder to bring out the chocolate flavor. If you are making this for children, you may want to leave this out.

  • Chocolate + kids = hyperactivity
  • Chocolate + kids + espresso powder = child screaming like an injured monkey

Or so I would suspect.

I love these charming biodegradable birch wood spoons. They are a little nicer in place of the “stick”. You can find them here at Amazon. If you are curious about the mold I’m using, it’s the Wilton Brownie Bites silicone pan.

I fancied these up a bit more with a sheet of chocolate transfer from Fancy Flours. How apropos, right? To do this I melted some white chocolate (flavored with LorAnn raspberry oil, mmmm…) and dipped the hardened squares.

Place them melty side down on the chocolate transfer sheet. Allow to dry completely and peel from paper.

And there you have it – raspberry hot chocolate on a stick. All we need now is a cup of hot milk and we’re ready to go!

And now, some fun in the snow with my little clown…

If I can catch him!

Note: You’ll find the recipe HERE, at Giver’s Log as referenced earlier.

The transfer sheets made these extra-luxe, I love it! The original recipe says no water, alcohol, extract or liquid food coloring or the chocolate will seize. Does this apply to flavor oils as well? Did the chocolate with the raspberry oil give you any trouble? Thanks!

Hi Batty! The flavoring oils I used are made by LorAnn. They are specially formulated for candy and chocolate flavoring. I had no trouble at all! I can't speak for other brands of oils, but if you use LorAnn, I offer this; it is highly concentrated, and should be used judiciously. The oils are usually sold with a medicine dropper. Just a drop or two in 6 oz. of chocolate yields a nice flavor. But as stated in the original recipe -anything that has water in it – extracts and liquid food colorings specifically, will give you trouble. Thanks for… Read more »

Did u cut the transfer sheets prior to setting the spoons with the chocolate on them or did u just set them on the transfer sheet, I'm wondering if they peeled off that clean or u had to trim?

Did you find that there was enough chocolate to make a good cup when these were melted? It looks like Givers Log uses a lot more chocolate.

I love For the Love of Chocolate so much that I avoid going there. Really. I walk in with the best of intentions, usually for a gift for a friend, and I walk out with a huge bag full of goodies, most of them for me.
Their bulk bins have a wonderful variety, and the truffle counter can't be beat. If you're looking for a type of sweet that you can't find in other stores, FTLOC will probably have it.
If Willy Wonka had a gift shop at his factory, it would look like this place.
