In our area, as well as many parts of the United States, the weather outside is still cold & snowy. This makes it the perfect hot cocoa weather. Kiddo and I whipped up these Valentine’s Day Hot Cocoa stir sticks for ourselves as well as those around us and they were a huge hit! They’re simple to make and will put a smile on anybody’s face!



  • Silicone heart mold
  • Heart shaped (or mini) marshmallows
  • Valentine’s Day sprinkles
  • Popsicle sticks
  • Piping Bags (A ziploc bag will also work)
  • 16 ounces semi-sweet baking chocolate (broken into smaller pieces)
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  1. In a microwave safe bowl, melt the baking chocolate at 70% power, stopping to stir every 30 seconds until completely melted.
  2. In a stand mixer, combine powdered sugar, cocoa powder, and salt.
  3. Mix in the melted chocolate until thoroughly combined.
  4. Spoon into a piping bag
  5. Push popsicle stick into a heart shaped marshmallow and place in the bottom of the mold.
  6. Carefully pipe chocolate mixture so it covers the marshmallow and nearly fills the mold.
  7. Once all crevices of the mold have been filled, place in the refrigerator and let harden 4 hours, or overnight.
  8. Pop out. You can wrap these in a cellophane treat bag for easy gifting.

To Serve: Heat up milk in a large mug (milk will need to be hot enough to melt the chocolate). Stir your stick in the milk until mixed throughly. Enjoy!
