    Southern Polar Bear's Note:

    Simply swirl these blocks of chocolate into a mug of steaming hot milk for a special treat! Another great recipe from King Arthur Flour.

      I made these for my friends and teachers for Christmas, and they were excellent! I added marshmallows onto the lollipop stick too and thought that looked cute. Also, I thought the hot chocolate blocks tasted good without milk. Very rich, but good! Will definitely be making them again!

      These blocks are yummy and very easy to make. I gave them away as gifts too, which received raves and requests for the recipe. I will be making them every year and in between.
