Heavenly cubes of chocolate and Nutella fudge, ideal for popping into a mug of hot milk. If, that is, you can resist eating them like a lollipop. A super easy, 3-ingredient recipe that takes about two minutes to put to together.
Hot chocolate on a stick. I mean who was the genius behind that idea? I wish I could say it was me, but these little sticks of joy are all over pinterest. This particular recipe however is mine, based on chocolate fudge I’ve made in the past. I liked the idea of including other ingredients apart from chocolate, and, well, what could be better than Nutella in a hot chocolate beverage? So here it is. Only three ingredients that come together in a melty, sticky, awesome goo in one minute. The only difficulty is waiting for the fudge to set before cutting into it and plunging in the ice lolly sticks.
These treats also make a nice gift, so they are holiday-appropriate. Just place each cube on a mini muffin paper, sit it on a square piece of cellophane and lift the corners to create a pouch. Tie with pretty ribbon and voila! I couldn’t find clear cellophane so I improvised and cut up a thick plastic carrier bag, like the ones that patisseries in Greece normally put cake boxes in. I imagine in most places you get paper bags, but then again in most places it’s easy to find clear coloured cellophane. So you’ll be fine.
And there you have it, Nutella fudge hot chocolate on a stick. I kind of love saying it. Make some.
