Welcome to the the Welcome Winter party ! I wanted to share these mini hot cocoa cups because I am a hot chocolate drinker. All.Winter.Long.
There is nothing I love more than a quiet afternoon, a cup of Hot cocoa with whip cream and cocoa powder and a really good book.
These are as easy as melting chocolate chips!
You could make these for Valentine’s day treats too along with this banner with free printables!
It’s so easy! I picked up the mini cupcake liners and sticks at Michaels in the cake aisle by the sucker molds. I found the bag of dark chocolate chips and the mini-marshmallows at Target.
You can use milk chocolate , but I prefer chocolate with at least 65% cocoa for my hot cocoa cups.
Yes they make these! This isn’t a paid sponsorship, I was just super-excited to find them.
Melt your chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl at 30 second intervals, stirring between so they don’t burn. The chocolate and container will be hot, so be careful not to burn yourself.
Pour your melted chocolate into the cups, about 2 TBSP worth, and top with the little marshmallows,tapping them down slightly with the back of a spoon.
Make sure you use both the white candy cups and then put the liners on the inside, otherwise the liners don’t hold their shape and the chocolate oozes out.
Okay, here is your Pinterest worthy pin with the stick.
Here is the reality. I tried it the other way and they kept falling over. So,once the chocolate was warm and no longer hot, I put them on a plate and covered the entire thing in plastic wrap. I then poked the wood sticks through an put them in the fridge to harden.
Then just pull your liner out of the white cup.
When your ready to make your drink just peel off the liner, or if not, just do like my kids do and eat it like a treat.
To make hot cocoa, just heat up the milk and let the chocolate stick melt away as you stir to make a warm cup of goodness, the little marshmallows float to the top. You could eat these pie crust cookies on the side for a double dose of chocolate.
I love how cute these little guys are but I am a whipped cream and cocoa powder kind of girl.
Thanks for stopping over to our Welcome Winter party. Make sure you stop and see the other ladies Welcome Winter ideas!
