DIRECTIONS

  • Line an 8" x 8" pan with parchment paper or aluminum foil.
  • Heat the cream and condensed milk over low heat until steaming.
  • Remove from the heat and add the chocolate; allow it to gently melt.
  • After about 10 minutes, return the chocolate mixture to low heat to completely melt the chocolate.
  • Whisk vigorously until the mixture is thick and shiny.
  • Add a few drops of flavoring oil if you like; hazelnut, coffee, or vanilla are popular flavors.
  • Pour the chocolate mixture into the pan; shake the pan gently to level.
  • Sprinkle with cocoa, if desired.
  • Set aside overnight to slowly set up.
  • Run a knife around the edge of the pan and turn out onto a clean cutting surface.
  • Slice into 1 ¼" cubes. Heat a knife in hot water and wipe dry before each cut, for smoothest cuts.
  • Stick a wooden stick into the center of each block.
  • Roll in cocoa or crushed peppermint candy, if desired.
  • Wrap in waxed paper, parchment, or plastic wrap to store.
