Hot chocolate is easy to make at home without a packet.

Hot Chocolate on a Stick - Growing Up Gabel

Our weather has been super cold lately – like highs in the 40s.  That’s OK, you can laugh at that.  I deal with temps well over 110 in the summer so 40 is cold for me.  We’re doing everything we can to try and stay warm like drinking every hot drink we can find! My favorite hot drinks are still cardamom coffee and chai tea, but the kids, of course, want hot chocolate! My favorite hot chocolate is still hearty hot cocoa, but often I want something a little quicker.  I first saw hot chocolate on a stick mentioned in a magazine with the website where you could buy it.  It didn’t seem to me that it could be all that difficult to make yourself and I was right. Talk about super easy! I used mini-muffin cups for mine, but an ice cube tray would work just fine, too.

I used some melting chocolate, but I’m sure chocolate chips would work. I also made my own powdered sugar by blending sucanat in my blender. It’s brown, but that gets hidden in the chocolate.

I did find that these make some VERY chocolatey hot chocolate so you could easily put less on the stick.

Hot Chocolate on A Stick
  • 1 cup milk or semi-sweet chocolate, diced up
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  1. Melt chocolate in a double boiler, microwave or just in a pan on the stove.
  2. Remove from heat once most of the chocolate is melted and stir until the rest is melted.
  3. Stir in cocoa powder, sugar, and salt. The mixture will be thick.
  4. Using a small cookie scoop, spoon, spatula or whatever, scoop chocolate in to mini-muffin pan or ice cube tray. This recipe made 12 mini muffin sized sticks for me.
  5. Add a stick. I used lollipop sticks, but I would recommend plastic stir sticks as the paper on mine started to come apart in the milk.
  6. Allow to cool at room temperature.
  7. Store in a plastic bag or container.
  8. To use: Immerse stick in a mug of hot milk. Stir to combine. Enjoy!

  14. Oh Yummy! I’ve never heard of this. Sounds wonderful. Do you store them in the fridge? freezer? Definitely pinning this.

    • You know, they really didn’t last that long around here and I gave the others away. But if it’s winter, I’d just leave them out. If it’s warmer in your kitchen, I’d put them in the fridge.

  15. I’ve never heard of this before, but my oldest son and I love hot chocolate, so I’m pinning and saving this recipe. We live in the South, so we aren’t happy with temps in the 40s for more than a couple of days either. In fact, after wearing pants for about two days in a row, my boys started complaining and asking when they could wear shorts again. t
