The gift of a warm cup of hot chocolate is hard to beat, and, while it doesn’t take much more than some warm milk and a little chocolate, there are plenty of ways to get creative with a comforting cup of cocoa!

For each flavor, melt 3 cups of chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl. Add in 6 tablespoons of confectioners’ sugar, and stir until smooth. Pour into a silicone mold, top with additional ingredients of your choice, and insert a wooden stick into the center. Allow the cups to harden in the fridge before removing from the molds, and place in a cup of warm milk or water to enjoy!
