I’ve heard it said that some people don’t have a sweet tooth, but they’re certainly not members of my family. And at Christmas, when we’re giving gifts to people whose tastes we might not know so well, such as neighbors and our children’s teachers, I think a chocolate gift is a great choice.

Here’s an idea for a child-made Christmas gift that’s super easy to make and looks and tastes great too.

We make these homemade Christmas chocolates every year and they’re always a hit. With a little help, the children can make themselves – they’re quick, easy and fun. Oh, and yummy too.

Here are the things you need to make chocolate factory

chocolate factory ingredients

  • Good quality chocolates
  • Toppings (chopped candied /  glazed cherries, chopped nuts such as pistachios and hazelnuts, chocolate chips, mini marshmallows, raisins, cranberries, candied peel, and sugar sprinkles)

instructions to make chocolate factory

Step 1

Use good quality chocolate, put it in a glass bowl, and place that over a pan with a little boiling water in it. Make sure not to get any water in the chocolate, but instead let the heat from the boiling water rise up, warm your glass bowl and make the chocolate melt from underneath.

Step 2

Help the children to remove the glass bowl from the heat and set it down on a mat.

Step 3

Then you need to use a spoon to make your little chocolate shapes. You could spoon circles of the chocolate onto non-stick baking parchment. You could put some into silicone baking cases. You could pour out a big pool of chocolate onto baking parchment to make a large slab.

Drop a few toppings of your choice onto each little chocolate.

Step 4

We like to set up a pick-and-mix station with a selection of toppings, so each child can choose the flavors they or the recipient like best. Toppings you might include are chopped candied /  glacé  cherries, chopped nuts such as pistachios and hazelnuts, chocolate chips, mini marshmallows, raisins, cranberries, candied peel, and sugar sprinkles. Adults might like the addition of  chili  flakes or sea salt (yes, really!) Drop a few toppings onto each little chocolate and you’re done.

Step 5

Leave your chocolates in a cool place (but not the refrigerator) to set.
