Pink Hot Cocoa On a Stick
This treat is pretty in pink, and will keep your Valentine warm and toasty!
Hot chocolate on a stick is one of the most gift-able treats around. It’s my go-to goodie for stocking stuffers at Christmastime, but it’s a nice gift at any time of year! I like to package them individually in cellophane bags tied with pretty ribbon, and I always include a tag with hand-written instructions: Dissolve in 8 ounces of hot milk.
The semi-sweet chocolate version I typically make can be endlessly varied, and that had me dreaming up all kinds of possibilities with white chocolate. This strawberry white-chocolate version is rich and warming, and turns a beautiful shade of pink when melted in hot milk. It’s a sweet gift that’s Valentine’s-appropriate, especially when dipped in red and pink confetti sprinkles. Plus, this recipe has only three ingredients (four if you count the sprinkles), so making a big batch is a quick and easy endeavor.
To get started you’ll need a silicone mold. The cavities should be about 1.5 ounces each. If you don’t have a silicone mold you can use small disposable paper cups. You’ll also need disposable spoons. I like to use wooden spoons that are biodegradable, but plastic spoons or even plastic straws could be used. Gather together the recipe ingredients: 12 ounces white chocolate chips, 2/3 cup powdered strawberry milk mix and the melting wafers.
