7. Set aside overnight to slowly set up. (I set mine on the counter overnight, then I popped it in the fridge the following morning to firm it up.) Run a knife around the edge of the pan and turn out onto a clean cutting surface. Slice into 1 ¼” cubes.

8. Heat a knife in hot water and wipe dry before each cut, for smoothest cuts.

9. Stick a wooden stick into the center of each block.

10. Add marshmallows if desired. Enjoy!

11. Hot cocoa on a stick will keep at at room temperature for two weeks in an airtight container.

12. If you are making them for your wedding and you want to keep them longer, put them in an airtight container and pop them in the fridge or in the freezer, where they will keep up to 30 days
