Hot Chocolate on a Stick
I recently attended a festive holiday cookie swap and was delighted by a creative treat contribution that's bound to please any mini eater: hot chocolate on a stick.
The creator melted chocolate, poured it into an ice try, impaled the chocolate bits with a Popsicle stick and let it set. He made little labels that instruct "stir into one mug steaming milk...Mmmmm!" He also packaged up three marshmallows in cellophane and dressed with a ribbon so party goers could take home their chocolate treat for later enjoyment.
Not only is the idea adorable and a sure-fire crowd pleaser, but the project seems like less of a cooking commitment than baking homemade treats. What child doesn't want a cup of warm chocolate in Winter?
