One of my favorite things about the holiday season is baking for my friends and family. Baked goods make great gifts, especially for those of us who are always on a tight budget! When you’re baking for gifts, easy recipes are a must! Because let’s be honest, who has the time to make a lot of long, complicated recipes?!
When I was a kid there was this really great kitchen store at our local mall. I wish I could remember what it was called. I remember being amazed by these chocolate spoons for stirring into a hot beverage. I thought it was genius!
A number of years ago when I was baking holiday gifts I thought of these spoons. They seemed easy enough to recreate and some cute wrapping would make them into perfect gifts. I did this for a few years, but have started seeing these spoons around again so now I have to step up my game!
How better to step it up than but adding Nutella?! Nutella is heaven in a jar. It is the most addicting, delicious, guilty pleasure. And yes, I eat it by the spoonful and no, I have no shame about this. This Nutella hot chocolate on a stick was so good that my husband, who is not a sweets fan, drank the hot chocolate I made!!! So make these for gifts, save a few for yourself, and enjoy the most divinely rich hot chocolate you’ve ever had!
