Valentines Chocolate Lollipop

Valentine’s Day is now right around the corner and what better way to spend these cold and rainy days than at home doing some Valentine crafts with the children.

Actually, what I really mean is that I have a TON of chocolate leftover from Christmas and I am looking for great ways to use it up without eating it all myself :)

You will need:

  • Heart-shaped chocolate lollipop mould
  • Lollipop (or cake pop) sticks
  • Milk chocolate
  • Coloured candy melts or white chocolate to add contrast
  • Decorations or sprinkles of choice

My chocolate heart mould has a double-heart pattern, so to enhance this feature, I layered my chocolate.

First I melted a few of the pink candy melts over some hot water, and using a new, clean paint brush, I painted a thin layer of pink in the first heart indentation.

Before adding your next layer, you will need to wait for this first layer to set. Candy Melts set quite quickly, but you can always pop them in the fridge to speed things along.

Next spoon over some melted milk chocolate, insert your lollipop stick and make sure it’s covered in chocolate and place in the fridge to set.

Top Tip: if you are using a silicone lollipop mould, it helps to place this on a baking sheet before you begin as they are quite flexible when you attempt to move them.

Play around and try different colour variations!

Once your chocolate lollipops have set, you can remove them from the mould and they are ready to give. If you wish, you can use a little left over candy melt or chocolate to add some pretty decorations.

These chocolate lollipops are great for the children to give as Valentine gifts to teachers, class mates and grandparents!

Have fun!

      Your kiddos aren’t allowed to take homemade stuff into school? How come? I’m guessing because of allergies and stuff, right?
