Ingredients

  • 2 and 1/2 cups chocolate chips semi-sweet, dark, or white
  • 1-14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • assorted toppings sprinkles, crushed candy canes, marshmallow bits, etc

Instructions

  • Place chocolate chips in a large heat-safe bowl. Line mini-cupcake pan with liners. Set both aside.
  • In a small saucepan over medium heat, whisk together sweetened condensed milk and cream, stirring frequently to prevent scorching. Remove from heat when mixture just starts boiling.
  • Immediately pour heated milk mixture over chocolate chips and stir vigorously with a spatula until smooth.
  • Using a medium size cookie scoop (approximately 1 and 1/2 Tablespoons), scoop chocolate ganache into liners. Decorate as desired while chocolate is still soft. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  • To use, bring 6oz of milk just to a boil. Stir in chocolate pod until completely dissolved. Add 2 pods if you want your hot chocolate extra rich. Pods cane be kept in the refrigerator or at room temperature (but they last longer in the fridge).
