hot chocolate

I made these hot chocolate on a stick baskets for few people for christmas.
aren't they cute?! i got the idea from One Pretty Thing.

start with milk chocolate, and melt in plastic ziploc bag. i wouldn't use the chips like i did, because they aren't meant to melt so they take a while to cool and harden back up! my kroger was out of sweet baking chocolate so i just went with it.
snip corner of ziploc bag and squeeze into ice cube trays.
pop in candy sticks, they stand up on their own. let cool. i stuck mine in the freezer to speed it up.
i also melted some white chocolate in a bowl and dipped the ends of the milk chocolate in them. To some i added sprinkles and to some i added coconut shavings. you could also make all white chocolate ones. the sky is the limit!

i got the mini plastic bags and the candy sticks from michaels. i placed them in a christmas basket with a christmas mug and tied the instructions (stir in mug of hot milk) to it. cute and easy!
