  • Place each chocolate in its own piping bag and seal the ends with a knot.
  • Fill the chocolate two thirds full into the moulds / shot glasses.
  • Add a lolly stick or spoon into the middle of each mould, ensuring that the sticks are pressed right down to the bottom of the chocolate. The sticks should hold its place when stuck into the chocolate. Tap the glasses on the table to remove trapped air.
  • Add toppings such as marshmallows and chocolate chips on top of the melted chocolate. 
  • Re-centre any wooden sticks or spoons that has slanted and place in the fridge to chill for 1 to 2 hours or until set.
  • When set gently pull them out of the shot glasses or moulds.

Nutritional Information is an estimate, the quantities and type of toppings you use will differ.
If your hot chocolate stirrers are not coming out on the shot glasses. Gently dip the shot glass into hot water for no more than 10 seconds. Give the stick a pull and it should come out, but that pattern may smudge. That’s why it’s best to use silicon moulds.
As chocolate has a long shelf life, these stirrers can last around 3 weeks, though this can be even longer depending on the types of toppings used. Keep in mind that biscuit toppings can get soft over time and marshmallows will harden overtime when exposed to air.
