www.giverslog.com . . .

So, who's made them??

I'm doing baking baskets for a lot of people for Christmas (as well, a family of five girls are all getting small bags of homemade hair toys and bath/body stuff and thought it'd be nice to stick one or two of these in each of their bags).

I did a quick, half assed trial run the other day. They tasted good though my chocolate wasn't the best and I didn't have enough of it so there were some clumps...so I can only imagine how great they would taste with good chocolate and enough of it. 

My boyfriend has some fondue chocolate that he got for grad since I had a chocolate fountain at my social. I was thinking of using that for most of them.

I was also thinking of putting crushed up candy canes in some would be kind of cute, or putting crushed up candy cane on top? Or dipping them into white chocolate once they're done...I've got lots of things I want to experiment with.  Oh! And I was thinking of putting homemade marshmallows on the stick, too!

There's a different kind of hot chocolate on a stick. It's more like a fudge type. I'm thinking of blending the two recipes and playing around to see which I like best.

i made the kind from giverslog this morning.  i havent had a chance to taste them yet.  (79 degrees here in houston.  not really in the mood for hot chocolate!)

I did milk chocolate and a premixed hot chocolate powder that i really enjoy.  they look nice.  i decided to forgo the stick so i just have cubes.  i put one ounce by weight in each cavity of an ice tray and threw it in the freezer for 5 minutes.  they popped right out and are pretty.

i think the next batch i make, i'll imbed a marshmellow in the middle

A marshmallow - what a great idea Icebyrd!

Caity Bear, using a candy cane as the stick did occur to me, to make it minty.  I think dipping the finished product in chocolate and then rolling in crushed candy cane would also be pretty nice.  Grin

This sounds like an awesome treat. My wife would LOVE them, especially with the marshmallow in the middle.
