Quick Hot Chocolate Cups

Quick hot chocolate cups are not difficult to prepare and deliver the quickest, sweetest food gift ever. Your friends are going to wonder why they didn’t think of doing this! The days are still cold here and the drinks are still warm.

Quick Hot Chocolate Cups

I had never really wondered if there was a difference between “hot cocoa” and “hot chocolate”, until I did these hot “chocolate” cups. There is surely a difference and if you do a little Google search like I did, you will find that hot cocoa is made with cocoa powder mixed with hot water or milk and sugar. Hot chocolate is melted chocolate mixed with warmed milk. So, here is my easy recipe for a fun and quick hot “chocolate” cup  that can be saved for later, made now or give as a New Year’s gift!
Quick hot chocolate cups are really quick to make, and you only need 3 ingredients. However, only 2 ingredients are needed if you don’t want to add the peppermint or any crushed candy.

Quick to Prepare Hot Chocolate Cups

1. Melt 2 1/2 cups semi-sweet, milk chocolate or dark chocolate chips in a saucepan over low heat, or in the microwave. Don’t burn, just heat until the chocolate is warm enough to stir smooth.
2. Line a muffin pan with pretty muffin liners.
3. Spoon about 2-3 tbsp. of melted chocolate into each cup (create a little swirl with the spoon to make it pretty!)
4. Sprinkle each with mini marshmallows and crushed peppermint candy or crushed chocolate covered toffee pieces for a little bit of taste change.
Chill in the refrigerator until firm. Put a few in some pretty winter treat bags for a gift, perhaps with some extra marshmallows! Keep extras stored in an air-tight container.
If you wanted to give a food gift, this is a perfect sweet treat! Print the instructions onto a card and attach to your bag.
