Valentines Chocolates Kids Can Make

When I was younger, this was a family holiday tradition. It started as a Christmas tradition but quickly took over most holidays. Any child who can hold a tooth pick and can understand basic instructions can help with this. Even my 2 year old sister loved this one.

You need: colored chocolate melts, valentine’s chocolate molds, and toothpicks.

You will need to melt the chocolate in small portions in the microwave. Start with the accent color – red is perfect for valentines.

Let your child use a tooth pick to “decorate” by filling in the details of the chocolate mold. It doesn’t matter if they don’t get it perfect. That’s the nice thing about a single ingredient recipe – it’s hard to mess up the taste. Let sit for a few minutes to harden slightly

Depending on the age of the child, you may want to fill in the remaining mold yourself. Older children can use a small spoon to fill in the remaining area with another white or milk chocolate.

Let the molds sit in the fridge until completely hard. You children can then help pop them out and place them in a storage tin(at least the ones they don’t eat:))

I’m glad you posted this – my 4 year old daughter and I made suckers this year and it was a lot of fun. She loved “coloring” the Christmas tree molds with different “paints”. It was fun, and we got to eat our mistakes. 🙂
