If they're still not melted, return the bowl to the microwave and zap the chips for another 30 seconds or until melted.
  2. Add the cocoa powder and confectioners' sugar to the melted chocolate and stir it all up again.
  3. Carefully pour the chocolate into a lightly oiled ice cube tray. Add a lollipop stick to each cube. Refrigerate until hardened.
