Spiced White Hot Chocolate on a Stick

The cold season has arrived! That means it’s time to break out the winter coats, boots, hats, gloves, and scarves. It also means time to bring out the hot chocolate! One of my favorite ways to keep warm during the cold season is with a nice cup of hot chocolate. I decided to do some experimentation with some hot chocolate recipes… on a stick! And I’ve come up with two recipes for ya. Today I’m so excited to share one of them with you… Spiced White Hot Chocolate on a Stick! This recipe is definitely one of my favorite hot chocolate recipes. I hope it becomes one of yours too!

http://www.thechildatheartblog.com/2013/11/the-merriest-blog-hop-week-1.html

Ingredients:

24 oz White Chocolate (best-quality chocolate is recommended)

1 can (14 oz) Sweetened Condensed Milk

1/2 cup Heavy Cream

2 teaspoons Cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon Nutmeg

Cooking Spray

Popsicle Sticks

Spiced White Hot Chocolate Recipe Steps

Steps:

1. Line an 8 x 8 dish with aluminum foil and spray it with cooking spray. Set aside.

2. Place the chocolate in a large bowl. Set aside.

3. In a small sauce pan, combine the condensed milk and heavy cream. Over medium-low heat bring the mixture to a simmer stirring frequently.

4. Pour the mixture over the chocolate and let it sit for a minute. Then stir the chocolate until it’s melted and smooth.

5. Add the cinnamon and nutmeg to the chocolate, and stir until well combined.

6. Pour the chocolate in the prepared 8 x 8 dish. Refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight.

7. Once set, slice 25 pieces and insert popsicle sticks in each piece. Feel free to sprinkle each piece with some cinnamon.

Tip: I find it easier to cut the chocolate when it’s removed from the dish. To remove, just lift the chocolate with the foil. For smooth cuts, heat a knife in a hot cup of water, wipe dry, and then cut. Wipe knife after each cut and reheat knife if necessary.

Spiced White Hot Chocolate on a Stick Recipe

When ready to serve, stir in a cup (8 oz) of hot milk. Garnish it with some marshmallows and cinnamon. Keep warm and enjoy!

These can be stored in the refrigerator in a tightly covered container for up to 2 weeks. They can also be stored in the refrigerator in individual plastic treat bags.

Spiced Hot Chocolate on a Stick Snowman Shaped

To have more fun with this recipe, use small cookie cutters or molds to create cute shapes. For cookie cutters, use a 9 x 13 baking dish instead. Lightly spray the cookie cutter before cutting. For molds, lightly spray each cavity. The little ones will love the fun shapes… us big ones too!

In the next post I will be sharing my second recipe with you all, so be sure to come back!

    having nasty weather down here and cold, mercy it's cold outside. Had to go into town this morning and not going much over 25mph. The parking lots.....nothing but a sheet of ice. So glad to be back home. Hubby's work place even called and told him not to come to work this evening cause closing the store. Sure am glad that he's home for the evening and not on the icy roads

    Incase you don't see this comment on simplysweethome, I thought I'd repeat it here. This is inspired! I’m definitely trying it. I’ve made fudge using condensed milk and chocolate, so I imagine yours is a bit similar maybe? If you get time, check out my blog: http://sugarandtwocents.blogspot.co.uk
