Chocolate Blocks (for making hot chocolate)

One basic recipe for making 4 different hot chocolate drinks. Fun for the kids too.

Difficulty: Easy

Prep Time: 5 minutes   Cook Time: less than 5 minutes  

Ingredients

1-14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk

1 teaspoon vanilla extract
miniature marshmallows for decoration


Directions

In a medium size saucepan, over medium heat, stir and heat cream and sweetened condensed milk until just starting to bubble. Remove from heat and pour over both chocolates that are in a large bowl. Let sit 30 seconds and then stir until smooth and all the chocolate is melted. Stir in 1 teaspoon vanilla extract. Divide evenly among 9 standard-sized paper cupcake liners. Top each block with miniature marshmallows. STORE IN A SEALED CONTAINER IN THE REFRIGERATOR OR FREEZER.
2. Making the drink—heat 4 cups of milk to a scald and add one block. Whisk gently until the block is melted through and milk is hot.

    These were so easy and I made 12 blocks. The chocolate mixture filled all 12 liners. The mixture is absolutely decadent! It reminded me of fudge, really good fudge! It makes a smooth cup of hot chocolate, too.

    I made these again today, and i ran out of large muffin pan liners, so I got my mini muffin pans out and made little buttons. I figure they can be used for a single cup of hot cocoa. My friends and neighbors absolutely love these, don’t hesitate to try them!
