Welcome to Elfie’s blog

I’m the Mama of three young kids and we live in London with my husband and two cats. I mainly blog about things that make children smile, get very excited, or find totally amazing … without taking up too much effort on your part!  I hope you enjoy …

Surprise the kids with a chocolate and sprinkle coated glass on Christmas morning for a North Pole Breakfast. International Elf Service

North Pole Milk

Kids love a surprise and if you surprise them with a chocolate-coated sprinkle-covered North Pole milk, they’ll love it. Prep it the night before, and keep it in the fridge!

Scroll down for a VERY naughty North Pole Candy Cane Milkshake!

 

Chocolate Coated Sprinkle Covered North Pole Milk

 

What You Need:

  • Chocolate broken into pieces
  • Sprinkles
  • A glass
  • Heatproof bowl
  • Saucepan
  • Candy Cane Straw (optional)

 

What You Do:

  • Melt the chocolate by bringing about an inch of water to a simmer in your saucepan. Set the heatproof bowl in the mouth of the pot, making sure the water doesn’t touch the bottom of the bowl. Add the chocolate and stir it occasionally as it softens. When you have just a few small unmelted chunks, remove bowl from heat (residual heat will melt the rest).
  • Allow to cool (but not harden!).  If it’s too hot, it will run down the side of the glass when you lift it up.
  • Either sprinkle the sprinkles on by hand, or dip the glass into the chocolate until it’s coated all the way around.
  • Allow to cool further.
  • Dip in to a bowl of sprinkles, or roll the edge of the glass in sprinkles and stand it in the fridge to harden fully and until you need it.
  • Fill with milk, or anything else cold, and pop in a Candy Cane straw!
