Is everyone else as sick of winter as I am? I don't think I'll be the first to say that this year has been bad. Brutal, even! But instead of whining about the cold, damp, terrible, no-good conditions (oh, I could go on!) I'm thinking we should try to capitalize. And what better way to do so than with a super simple, super adorable hot chocolate party a la Christina Vo. Captured by Sonya Yruel, it's all right here.
And though this particular party utilized Ticket Kitchen's ready-made hot chocolate on a stick, we thought we'd share our own version (just in case you need them in your life, and I seriously think you do!)
Hot Chocolate on a Stick
|1/2 cup heavy cream||14 oz. sweetened condensed milk|
|18 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips||4 oz unsweetened, good quality chocolate (like Ghirardelli)|
|25 lollipop or popsicle sticks|
Place all chocolate in a heat-proof bowl.
Whisk cream and condensed milk in a saucepan until combined. Place over medium high heat and whisk constantly until it comes to a simmer.
Pour overtop chocolate and slowly mix until combined.
Pour mixture into an 8x8" parchment lined baking dish and place in fridge until hard (3-4 hours)
Once firm, cut into 25 pieces and skewer with sticks!
Let's face it, Emily Larsons adorable paper tags are kind of what sealed the deal for the whole event. So she generously agreed to share them (and you can download and print them riiight here!) Happy hot chocolating darlings! XO
