Chocolate Holiday Stir Sticks / #FoodGifts

Today I am participating with a group of fellow bloggers in sharing ideas and recipes for #FoodGifts! I love making and giving food gifts. They are unique and fun, and recipients are so happy to receive them!
I have a lot of people I want to give little gifts to this Christmas, nothing fancy, just something to remind them that I am thinking of them. When I was trying to decide what to make, I thought of these little Chocolate Holiday Stir Sticks. I saw them in the stores last season. They are perfect to add to steaming, hot, mugs of hot chocolate. They add a richness and deep flavor that says holiday treat, and they are fun! Try them with coffee and tea also!
 
Chocolate Holiday Stir Stick 
(makes approx. 3 per recipe) 

7 ounces Milk or White Chocolate
Various Sprinkles
Holiday Sticks
Plastic Bags
Ribbon
Small bags of Cocoa Mix
Large Mugs



Chop chocolate and melt in a double boiler. Do the same with white chocolate.
Lightly grease the insides of each section of pan. I sprayed canola oil in to each one, and used a paper towel to remove most of it, leaving a thin layer. Pour chocolate into cavities of the pan. Decorate the top of each circle of chocolate. Leave a little space in the middle for the stick. Place in refrigerator for 10 minutes. Then add a stick to each cup. After 10 minutes, the chocolate should be cold enough and firmer, so that the sticks will stand up. If they don't, keep in fridge for 5 minutes more and try again.
 Do the same with the white chocolate. The pan I used here is one with the bottoms that are removable. That way you can pop the bottoms up for easy removable, and it is not necessary to spray any of the cavities. Decorate each one, and refrigerate for 10 minutes. Add sticks just like above. 
Place each stir stick in a plastic bag and tie with your choice of ribbon. 
Place in mugs with small packs or hot chocolate for gift giving!

  7. LOVE these! I've seen some beautiful spoons coated in chocolate, but I really like that these have more chocolatey goodness than a little bit of coating. My kids would love making them with me, too!

  9. I have seen chocolate covered spoons, but never anything like this! What a great little gift! They would also be perfect for our Christmas brunch, since I always have a slow cooker with homemade hot chocolate, these would be the perfect addition....and look great too!
