  • Place cream and milk in a small microwave safe bowl. Microwave on high until hot and bubbly, about 30 to 60 seconds.
  • Pour hot cream and milk, over chocolate chips in a medium sized mixing bowl. Stir until smooth.
  • Place a silicone ice cube tray on a small cookie sheet. Spoon chocolate mixture into each cube of the ice cube tray. Place a stick in each chocolate cube.Top with your favorite toppings as desired.
  • Place tray in refrigerator for 2-4 hours or until chocolate is firm. Bend silicone tray carefully to pop out chocolate cubes.
  • To make hot chocolate, stir in one Hot Chocolate On A Stick in about 6 ounces of hot milk until chocolate has melted.


SNAPPY TIPS: Be sure to use a silicone ice cube tray (I used a 1-inch cube tray) rather than plastic so that the chocolate pops right out when done. You can also add extracts and flavoring to the chocolate but be careful that the flavorings don't cause the chocolate to seize.
SNAPPY SUBSTITUTIONS: Instead of semi-sweet chocolate chips, you could also use dark chocolate, milk chocolate, or bittersweet chocolate. Instead of lollipop sticks you could also use candy canes or popsicle sticks.
