Confession: once again in my frenzy to complete this project, I neglected to take pictures so please bear with me and enjoy some that inspired me, taken by "professionals":)
To create my hot chocolate sticks,
Then I proceeded to make the ganache...mmmm.
I opted to make the ganache with bar chocolate vs chips for a superior texture but supposedly the chips work fine:)
I followed this tutorial, tweaked from the King Arthur Flour Company and it was lush!
Marshmallows & ganache complete, it was time to assemble...
This pic isn't mine, but looks just like my creations:)
And since I didn't have time to snap pictures, you can imagine I didn't have time to package each hot chocolate stick individually...so I grouped mine in bags of six:)
I loved this project and wasn't stressed to the limit achieving completion either!
I made the marshmallows & ganache simultaneously once my little Ms were in bed as both recipes involved "resting overnight"- perfect!
I then assembled & packaged the morning of Christmas Eve:)
So glad I took the time to try something new and I heard they tasted great- happy Mama:)
Next up: homemade biscotti, including a gluten free version!
Thanks for stopping by,
