Chocolate Creations

ages 3-6


Melting chocolate, candy molds, plastic container, microwave, items to dip, wax paper

Activity Detail

Let the kids get creative with chocolate. Melting chocolate can be found at your local craft store or, better yet, go for the good stuff and look up places that carry Merkins or Guittards melting chocolate. Microwave the chocolate in a plastic bowl for 30 seconds at a time, stirring in between each heating, until the chocolate is completely melted. Then choose a candy mold, which can be found in all shapes and sizes from flowers to hearts to sports and popular characters. The specialty stores will carry many more molds than a basic craft store. All the kids need to do is spoon a small amount of chocolate into each cavity on the mold, give the tray a tap to get the air bubbles out and slide it into the freezer for a few minutes. Once the chocolate hardens, simply flip the mold over and bend it a little. The molded chocolates should fall right out. You don't even need molds to have fun. You can dip all kinds of stuff in the chocolate and just lay it on wax paper on a cookie sheet to harden. Some of our favorites are Oreos, graham crackers, vanilla wafers, pretzels, cashews (half-dipped). The best part is there are NO mistakes in chocolate making since you get to eat the mistakes too!

What delicious fun! I can't wait to try this with my kids. It seems obvious, but make sure the chocolate isn't too hot before letting the kids near it.
