Hot Chocolate on a Stick (Hearts)

Hot Chocolate is a favorite drink in our house during the winter, especially on snowy days like we’re having today.  We will drink all kinds of hot cocoa, from the cheap Nestle and Swiss Miss, to the gourmet Ghirardelli. We love it in all forms.

Hot Chocolate on a Stick (Hearts)

I think I have found my favorite hot chocolate option in this recipe, Hot Chocolate on a Stick.  It is such a great perk that these will keep in a sealed container for one year, and all I have to do is warm up some milk or cream, and stir in my stick.  It’s a creamy, chocolaty treat…no marshmallows needed!

To celebrate Valentine’s Day, I made heart shaped cocoas and will be giving them as gifts.  Just pick up this Wilton 12-cavity heart mold (hint: it’s only $9.99 at Target and will probably be discounted after V-day).  The rest of the batch I made in regular ice cube trays, which also work out perfectly.  There is no need to line the mold with plastic wrap, or spray them with anything.  The chocolate easily pops out of the tray when hardened.

Pick up some favor bags at your local craft store and wrap the chocolate sticks individually to give them away for Valentine’s Day.  They are also the perfect addition to your holiday gift basket this coming year.  It’s never too late to plan ahead!

  1. Awwww! These look so adorable! I love the heart shapes.

  2. You have a typo in the chocolate-to-milk ratio at the bottom. But thanks to you, I just ate all 5 of the Hershey’s kisses I had leftover from Christmas. Those pictures are killing me.

  3. Here we get them in the shops, but i am sure these taste far better. I am bookmarking them.

  4. Heh, that’s cute. Great idea!

  7. oh love this idea!!

  8. WHAT A CUTE BLOG!!! And this is such a great idea! I love hot chocolate and have always wanted to try this!

  9. I am unable to get the hot chocolate on a stick recipe via the “Giver’s Log” website. Can someone please post the recipe.

    • Hi Myra. Amberle from Giver’s Log requested that I link to her recipe instead of posting it. I made the change yesterday and just checked it now where it worked for me. I tried another update to the link, so hopefully it works for you now. I’ll shoot you an email as well.


  10. This would be a super cute and cheap winter bridal shower favor!

  11. They are gorgeous!! What kind of chocolate did you use??

    • Hi Swapna, If you check out the link to Giver’s Log for the recipe, she shares a bunch of tips on what kind of chocolate to use. 🙂

  12. Where’s the dumb recipe ??? This is like the 3 rd or 4 th person who post picture of fun things to make AND THERE IS NO RECIPE,!!!!!

    • Hi Anonymous,
      I’m sorry for your frustration which caused you to leave such an abrasive comment. But, if you read the end of the post, you will see a link to the recipe over at Giver’s Log blog. Please do not leave a comment on here again unless you can use kinder words and tone.
      Thank you.

  13. I made these to give as gifts but wanted to try them first. They came out ok and look nice but at best I ended up with a warm cup of milk with chocolate floating in it. The chocolate did not blend with the milk. I used Ghirardelli chocolate. What did I do wrong?

    I am not able to find the recipe. I searched and found the the giver’s blog but she appears to now be selling chocolate on a stick so there is no recipe posted. Can you share the recipe you have. I really like the idea that you can keep this recipe for a year which means I an make ahead for holidays. Or maybe you can point out a similiar recipe. Thank you!
