Hot Chocolate Stones

Here's a super easy recipe. It doesn't take very long, and just put these in a nice box and they'll make a great Valentines or Christmas present!


8oz of Dark Chocolate (try to get one that has at least 70% cocoa)
1 Tbsp Cinnamon
2 tsp Nutmeg
1/2 cup Heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup Confectioners sugar
1/2 cup Cocoa powder


-Chop up the Chocolate in small pieces.

-Place chocolate in a medium size bowl and add nutmeg and cinnamon. Set aside.
-In a medium size saucepan, bring heavy whipping cream to a boil over medium heat (this should take only about a minute or two).

-Next pour the whipping cream over the chocolate and let stand for three minutes.

-After mix has sat for three minutes, stir until smooth.
-Next, lay out plastic wrap and pour chocolate mix onto it. Wrap the chocolate up, and refrigerate until firm.

-Once chocolate mix it firm, cut into chunks.

-Lastly, dust chocolate chunks in cocoa powder or confectioners sugar, and you're done! Easy!

Put these in a nice decorative box and they'll make a sweet present. I'm not a big fan of dark chocolate (though my husband liked these), so I'm going to experiment with the recipe and see if I can make this with milk chocolate. I'll try and post the tweeked recipe later if I can get the milk chocolate ones to turn out. :) Enjoy!
