Hot Chocolate Spoons

I like to take a little treat to co-workers.  It has been getting colder so this holiday I decided to help warm them all up by making some hot chocolate on a spoon.  I used the peppermint spoons I made for the handles and everyone can have some warm pepperminty hot chocolate to warm them from the inside out!

I'm wishing you a happy and warm holiday, however you celebrate. 

Hot Chocolate Spoons
1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup heavy cream
2 (12 oz.) bags chocolate chips, I used milk chocolate
1 (4 oz.) dark chocolate candy bar, broken into small pieces
1 tsp. vanilla

36  paper sticks, paper or bamboo spoons, or cinnamon sticks

optional toppings:
candy canes
cinnamon and chili pepper (for Mexican hot chocolate)
caramel bits

In a medium bowl add chocolate chips and broken candy bar pieces, set aside.
In a medium saucepan, heat milk and cream until just bubbling.  Pour over chips and candy bar, let sit for 5 minutes, add vanilla.  Stir until completely combined (I added mini marshmallows at this point, just make sure it is cool so they don't melt).  Pour into a 9X8 pan or scoop into individual candy wrappers or very small cupcake holders. Add any toppings, if desired. Let sit about 10 minutes to firm up then add paper spoons, candy canes or paper sticks.  Makes about 36 servings.

To make hot chocolate:
heat 6-8 oz. of milk, add chocolate (minus any paper wrapper) and stir until chocolate is melted.
