These Hot Chocolate Stir Sticks make great gifts for the holidays, but let’s not forget all those evenings that you are curled up by the fire in January, watching the snow fall. There isn’t anything better than a hot cup of cocoa – well with chocolate stir sticks added, of course!

Hot Chocolate Stirrers Supplies

All you need to make these Hot Chocolate Stir Sticks are 3 simple supplies – Sticks (any will do, but I think these rock candy sticks are really fun), Chocolate, and Mini Mallow Bits.

These sticks are super easy, however I have found a few tips that I think will help you.

Maker’s Tip #1: Chocolate – having a good melting chocolate is essential. Almond Bark (either chocolate or white) is my go-to chocolate. It melts really well, and is super easy to work with.

Maker’s Tip #2: Melting Chocolate – the key to getting the right consistency and not burning the chocolate is to stop cooking before it’s completely melted, then stir until it’s smooth.

The amount of time to cook will depend on the amount of chocolate. For 2 blocks of chocolate, melt in the microwave for 1 minute, then stir. Then continue cooking in 10 second intervals. Stop just before the chocolate is melted. It will have small pieces not melted.

Maker’s Tip #3: For the hot chocolate stirrers, it’s easiest to add the chocolate to a glass or tall container (not too tall though)

Maker’s Tip #4: Have everything ready to go before you begin. Lay out parchment or wax paper onto a cutting board or plate – something that will fit in your freezer. Pour the marshmallow bits onto a plate.

Maker’s Tip #5: Make extra! Everyone will love these!

Maker’s Tip #6: If you don’t want to use wooden sticks, you can also use peppermint sticks, spoons or straws.
