Continuing on here with our Hot Chocolate theme of late, I’ve made a tutorial on hot chocolate push pops! I adore push pops. If I had kids, this would be the only way to serve desserts. It would totally save the mess of cupcakes smeared all over faces, and tables, and clothing. Or maybe I’m just imaging I would have prim and proper children who would daintily nibble at the push pop. Hmmm, kids are sounding better and better! They’d be like the Downton Abbey babies…but without the nannies, or servants, or castle.
To make these Hot Chocolate Push Pops you will need a batch (or two depending on how many pops you want to make). If you haven’t tried my homemade brownie recipe, make sure you do! It’s so good . . . but a box mix will work just fine too if you don’t have time for scratch.
These push pops are very simple to assemble. The only challenging part is cutting the brownie with the cookie cutter! I had indents on my palm, but after a couple pushes, I smartened up and used a knife (I was smart enough to show that in the video).
The weather here has been down right FREEZING! I know I live in Canada, and I know it’s winter (well almost) but -30C is ridiculous! There’s a wind chill to boot as well. For the last couple of years, due to Paul’s “encouragement” I’ve tried to embrace winter. It hasn’t worked. Yet. I’m trying again this year, and decided to buy a down jacket, and adult snow pants (do you know they make those things without overalls now?!) So with my down jacket, and Ugg boots (no snowpants though . . . I’m saving those for ice fishing) we left the house yesterday and went for a walk. For 20 minutes. It was all we could handle . . . well, it was all I could handle. I’m sure Paul could have gone for much longer as I’m a wimp. My jacket kept me super warm and I enjoyed my new purchase until my face froze and my legs froze and I had those to complain about. Complaining is what I do best after all.
After our outside jaunt, I was desperate to be warmed up, and a warm cup of hot chocolate was in order. These candy cane marshmallow pops are super quick to assemble, and add delightful tastes to your warm cup of hot chocolate! They would also be delicious in a cup of coffee.
