A cup of comfort for my friends

Hot Chocolate on a Stick!


A clever candy that does double duty.  It makes great gifts (if any is left over after your kids find it) and you can make endless variations: besides adding the large marshmallows to the hot chocolate skewers.  Leave it plain for a darker chocolate,  roll the fudge blocks in crushed peppermint or cocoa, or drizzle them with white chocolate before packaging.   (My daughter loves just eating it plain like a fudge-pop.)
1 lb. semisweet chocolate
1- 14oz. can sweetened condensed milk
4 T. butter
bag of flat “smores” marshmallows
Butter and 8×8 baking dish and lay a sheet of parchment on the surface.
Fill bottom of double boiler with about 1 inch of water, bring to boil- then reduce to barely simmering.  Put first 3 ingredients in top pot, put on top of first pot. Heat, stirring frequently till melted.  Pour into baking dish.  Smooth with spatula,  refrigerate till set.  Cut into squares.
On a wood stick or skewer- stack a marshmallow and a fudge square.  wrap in a candy bag, and attach a how-to label.


how-to label;

Hot Chocolate on a Stick!
to use-
heat up a mug of milk* and dunk the fudge and marshmallow stick into the milk, stir until the fudge has completely dissolved.

(* no more than scalding on the stove, or 1 min. in the microwave)
