What is a Hot Chocolate Stick?
The kids and I couldn’t help but take a peek at Target’s Christmas section a couple of weeks ago. They were finishing up the aisles and had so many fun things! I especially loved the fun foods section with gift boxes, cookie mixes, and holiday candy.
It had been a long day of school and dental cleanings and we still had to pick up a birthday gift for a friend before heading home. I told the kids that they could pick out something fun to have as an after dinner treat.
That’s when we found a variety of flavors of hot chocolate sticks, how fun!
We grabbed 6, and as I was checking out and walking to the car it dawned on me that I had just spent $6 on something that I could have easily make for a fraction of the price.
You can add them to a cup of hot milk, or EVEN BETTER, add them to a mug of hot chocolate to really take it up a notch! Talk about a rich and creamy mug of hot chocolate that can be customized by adding different flavored hot chocolate sticks!
