"Grab your snuggy and meet me at the firepit"...
That was the rallying cry for the neighborhood...
A beautiful, cool, crisp evening. Temps were in the mid fifties. Light the firepit, wrap yourself in a snuggy (we had to borrow a couple, but we had snuggies for everyone (are we the perfect hosts or what?), a mug of hot chocolate and pass around the bottle of banana flavored rum.
Cul de Sac Luxury...
These are really easy.
I did add 2 heaping tsp. of cocoa powder to the 2 lbs of melted chocolate.
I also added 1/4 cup of heavy cream to the chocolate.
Melted the chocolate slowly so as not to burn.
While it was melting, I cut small circles of parchment paper to fit in the bottom of a mini muffin tin.
Then I sprayed a bit of non-stick spray on the sides of the mold. You need to be sure to be able to remove the chocolate molds from the tin.
I added some decorative candy sprinkles to the bottom of the tin.
Added a heaping TBS of the chocolate to each mold
Inserted a spoon as it hardened so the spoon would stand up straight.
When cooled, I rolled the chocolate mold in some more of the decorative sprinkles.
And, when ready to serve, I just zapped some milk in the microwave till it was HOT.
Insert spoon with chocolate and stir for a few seconds till it starts to melt.
Pass the bottle for an extra little "kick"!
I did make extras. I wrapped the extras in some waxed paper, tied with a bit of ribbon and gave each of our guests one to take home as a party favor (It was that or the snuggies, and NO ONE gets my snuggy).
Now really, don't you wish you lived in my Cul de Sac???
