Kristi over at 30 Pounds of Apples has provided the Internet with a way to fancy up their hot chocolate, but keep it about as instant as the powdered mix that comes in a box.

Kristi packages them up all fancy:
30 Pounds of Apples has the instructions available, and they seem fairly easy to follow, so you can get to making your own hot chocolates on a stick. You could also skip the hot milk entirely and just eat some chocolate cubes and marshmallows. Testimonials say that hot chocolate the sticks make ends up much creamier than the powdered kind, so having a stash of these sticks are probably a much better option if you’re hankering for the good stuff, but don’t have a lot of time.
