This cute little hot chocolate stirring stick is so cute for this time of year – there’s nothing better after a long walk in the cold than coming home to a lovely hot chocolate and stirring it with one of these yummy stirring sticks!
They’re so easy to make but look fab and when the kids have friends round, they all absolutely LOVE the novelty of these.
How to make a Hot Chocolate Stirring Stick
What you use is pretty flexible depending on what you have, this time I used some white chocolate star sprinkles, some mini marshmallows and half a leftover bar of dark cooking chocolate but in the past, I’ve used anything from popping candy to little mini jelly sweets.
I use a little silicone mould because it’s much easier to pop the chocolate out when they’re done – I’ve seen similar to this in the pound shop in town!
All I did today was add my little white chocolate stars in the base of my moulds and then sprinkle some of the mini marshmallows over the top.
I melted the chocolate in the microwave (in 20-second bursts) and left it to cool a little bit as I didn’t want it to be so hot that it would melt the white chocolate stars. Once it had cooled a little bit I spooned the chocolate into the moulds.
I let the chocolate cool down a little bit more and then stuck my lolly sticks in and added a few more white chocolate mini stars for good measure.
The sticks definitely ended up a little bit wonk but for the most part, they’re OK. 😉
I didn’t move them for fear of all the sticks falling over so I just left them exactly where they were for an hour or so to let the chocolate fully set. Then I just peeled back the silicone moulds and just pulled the stirring sticks out.
Honestly, this is the most flexible non-recipe that I have and every single time I’ve made these, no matter what I use, everyone loves them. They’re amazing to melt into your hot chocolate and give it a great extra chocolatey kick – with added marshmallows!
