♦ dark chocolate chips

♦ hot chocolate



♦ Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave or double boiler

♦ Mold a piece of wax paper to the rim of the mug

♦ Add the melted chocolate in the squeeze bottle

♦ Create the daddy long-legs spider by making a circle of chocolate in the center of the wax paper, then filling it in with more chocolate to create the body.

♦ Add 4 legs to each side of the body. Make sure that the spider legs fold over the edge of the mug, so that they are hugging the rim. This will allow for the spider to stay in place on top of the mug.

♦ Finally, add the candy googly eyes on the spider.

Delicious Hot Chocolate Recipes


by Regina Cozzi

Hot chocolate, a winter favorite. Although hot chocolate mix is easy to use, here are some alternatives you might want to try. These recipes are easy to make and sure to please the whole family!




Caramel hot chocolate

♦ 8 Caramilk® bar pieces (1 bar contains 10 pieces)
♦ 1 cup of milk


Creamy white hot chocolate

♦ 6 Hershey’s® Cookies ‘n’ Creme pieces (1 bar contains 8 pieces)
♦ 1 cup of milk


Truffle hot chocolate

♦ 5 PC® Italian milk chocolate truffles
1 cup of milk

If you like dark chocolate, you can use PC® dark chocolate truffles instead.

To obtain a nutty flavoured hot chocolate, use PC® hazelnut truffles.




♦ Add chocolate pieces and milk in a wide mug.

♦ Microwave for 1 minute.

♦ Blend mixture with a hand blender, directly in the mug.

This method is foolproof. It blends the milk and the chocolate together at the bottom, and makes it frothy at the top… the perfect hot chocolate!
