Snow plow stop -> one-footed snowplow (leave the other foot straight) -> one-footed snowplow while lifting the other foot up and placing it in the "correct" position for a hockey stop -> full hockey stop.

One of the best things for me as far as getting my hockey stop really good was playing games. You don't have time to think about it, which helps with transitioning it to pure muscle memory, rather than doing it in practice where you have time to think about exactly what you're doing. (That said, you should do it a lot in practice, too; muscle memory is highly dependent on repetition.)
