caramel hot chocolate stirrers

Makes around 18

500g mix of dark and milk chocolate

50g cocoa powder
125g icing sugar
1⁄4 tsp salt flakes

10 soft caramel sweets, chopped
Mini marshmallows, plus extra to serve

  1. Melt the chocolate in the microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring after each interval until smooth.
  2. Stir in the cocoa powder, icing sugar and salt and mix well.
  3. Transfer the mixture into a piping bag and pipe into silicone mini muffin moulds. If you do not have a silicone mould, use a mini muffin mould lined with paper cups.
  4. Once piped, top the chocolates with caramel and marshmallows and add wooden or paper lollipop sticks.
  5. Allow to set for around four hours until firm, then remove from the moulds or paper cups. Have fun wrapping them in cellophane or bags as gifts!
  6. To make the hot chocolate, heat up milk or a mixture of milk and cream, place in a mug and swirl in the chocolate stick. Add extra marshmallows to serve.
