Doesn’t everything taste better on a stick?
I am currently obsessed with two things: Pinterest and marshmallows. I spied WhipperBerry’s Hot Chocolate on a Stick *DIES* and had to try to make it. Now I actually had a need for Sweet and Sara marshmallows, instead of just a gluttonous want.
I don’t speak French but I think Ganache must mean “chocolate that we managed to cram MORE fat into”. That’s all it is. I used coconut milk and creamer because it has such a high fat content. And as an island girl, I love all things coconut. If you don’t share the same love affair, you could experiment with other nut milks, macadamia might be very interesting.
No Moo Ganache/ Hot Chocolate on a Stick
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Ingredients (About 36 squares of ganache)
- ½ cup coconut creamer
- 14 oz. coconut condensed milk
- 14 oz. semi sweet chocolate
- 1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract or the flavoring of your choice
- Sweet &Sara vegan vanilla marshmallows
Other stuff you need
- 8 x 8 pan
- parchment paper
- lollipop sticks
- dessert cups ( those decorative muffin paper looking thingys)
For the Ganache
Create a double boiler by putting 2 inches of water into saucepan. Place a heat safe bowl on top of the pan and make sure the bottom is NOT touching the water. Pour in the creamer, condensed milk, chocolate chips and any flavoring you want to add, like vanilla. Stir until all ingredients are melted,smooth and creamy.
Remove from heat and pour into a parchment paper lined pan. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours until it is firm. I place my ganache in the freezer for 15 minutes before I plan to cut it so that it is easy to work with. Cut into equal sized squares.
Place a marshmallow (or two) on a lollipop stick with the ganache squares.Add your Hot Chocolate on a Stick to a mug of plant-based milk or a cup of coffee, enjoy!
* To make coconut condensed milk – Heat two 14 oz cans of coconut milk plus ½ cup sugar over medium high heat. The mixture will thicken and reduce by 50%. Use any extra for Thai coffee/tea, yum!
