Course beverage, holiday
Prep Time 30 minutes
Cook Time 5 minutes
Servings 16


  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
  • 3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened baking chocolate


  1. Heat cream and sweetened condensed milk in a heavy-bottomed pan until simmering but not boiling. Stir to keep from burning and sticking to the bottom of the pan.

  2. Remove from heat and add in chocolate chips and unsweetened baking chocolate. Let sit in pan for 10 minutes.

  3. Use a whisk to stir in chocolate completely. You will end up with a thick, fudgey looking concoction.

  4. Let cool for ten more minutes. Use spoon to fill each section of mini-muffin tin with chocolate mixture. Sprinkle on crushed candy canes, mini marshmallows, or sprinkles.

  5. Place one lollipop stick in each section.

  6. Once completely cooled, these can be removed and stored at room temperature.

To Serve:

  1. Place one hot chocolate on a stick into a mug.

  2. Add simmering hot milk.

  3. Stir until completely melted (this make take a couple of minutes)

  4. This can also be added to hot coffee for a rich and not-too-sweet mocha.
