Hot Chocolate on a Stick = Win!



So happy to come across a recipe for homemade marshmallows and hot chocolate on a stick! Just look at my pretty new batter bowl chock full of little individually wrapped and ready to give away hot chocolates on a stick! There's one for the mail-lady, a few for the neighbors and some for family & friends! I'm going to have to whip up another batch after the holidays for the hubby and I to enjoy all season long!



I have to admit, I was a little intimated at first by the marshmallow recipe...but it was really very simple and they turned out fabulous! Next time I'll invest in slightly bigger treat bags because these were just a little too snug. I had a heck of a time getting them each into the bags because they kept catching on the edges, etc.

Luckily two came out kinda wonky so we already have had the chance to try them out - love how rich and creamy the chocolate is - delicious!

EDITED TO NOTE:

Oops, sorry everyone! I forgot to link to the recipe I used!

This post from Foodie with the Family has BOTH the homemade marshmallow recipe and the recipe for preparing the hot chocolate squares!

Stacy, we're planning to make marshmallows this week, too! I found a recipe on Smitten Kitchen.
What a cute idea to make it into a hot chocolate stick!

I love this idea. Where did you find the marshmallow recipe? Or maybe I'll follow Alli's hint...

Yes, do you give out the recipe for these delights, or did you already and I missed it before??

Someone else mentioned hot chocolate on a stick the other day -- but I still don't quite get what it is. (I've got the marshmallow part down, having made them before. Where did you find the hot chocolate recipe?
