Hot Chocolate Hearts

Hot Chocolate Hearts

Looking for a fun holiday recipe to make with the kids? Or maybe you’re tired of buying those hot cocoa packets. Either way, these are the recipe for you!

9 ounces quality milk or dark chocolate
1/2 cup confectioner’s sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

Additional Supplies:

quart size Ziploc bag
parchment paper
baking sheet


Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Break chocolate into small chunks and melt, stirring frequently to avoid burning. Stir until smooth.
Add confectioner’s sugar and cocoa powder. Mix Well. The chocolate mixture should resemble the consistency of frosting.
*If the consistency is too dry, add small amounts of milk until it looks more like frosting.
Spoon chocolate into Ziploc bag. Twist the top to form a cone with one of the bottom corners of the bag (like a piping bag). Cut off the tip of that corner.
Pipe chocolate onto parchment lined sheet in heart shapes (1-2 inches across) or other shapes. Let harden.

Store in airtight container. When ready for use, place 2-5 (depending on your chocolatey preference) hot cocoa hearts in a mug of hot milk. Stir until chocolate dissolves into milk. Wa-la!

Happy Holidays

I hope you all are enjoying the holiday season with family and friends and delicious food! Sadly, I did not get to bake as many cookies as I usually do, but I hope you enjoyed the ones that I did post. You will be happy to know that I have big plans for 2014…Since I got a slow cooker for Christmas I will be experimenting with some new recipes!

As always, any suggestions are welcome. So if you have an idea of something I should try and conjure up in my crock pot please feel free to comment. Enjoy the rest of 2013, friends. The New Year is almost upon us.

Happy eating!
