Hot Chocolate on a Stick (Paleo)

Hey guys, so this is a recipe I found, that I was so intrigued by because it looked like such a fun idea! So I decided to make it. But, problem was I didn't have a lot of the ingredients, so I did a few substitutes and voila! The original recipe called for cocao butter, which is apparently very rare and hard to find as I went to 7 different stores in town and couldnt find it. So I looked up a replacement for it and the internet revealed that coconut oil was a fine substitute. So I tried it, and it worked great! I cant believe this recipe is Paleo, because who doesn't LOVE a steaming hot cup of hot cocoa on a cold winter evening? Alright my friends, until next time... xoxo

3½ tablespoons 100% dark chocolate
2½ tablespoons coconut oil
3 tablespoons coconut sugar
1 tablespoon raw honey
¼ teaspoon 100% pure vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon ground coffee
pinch of salt

1. Melt the chocolate and coconut oil in a bowl over simmering water
2. Whisk in the coconut sugar, honey, vanilla, ground coffee and salt until well combined
3. Pour chocolate into ice cube trays and refrigerate until chocolate is set around the edges, then insert a Popsicle stick in the center. Keep chocolate refrigerated until it has harden completely before removing it from the mold.
4. Heat 1 cup of your favorite milk and then swirl. Enjoy!
