Homemade chocolates are really as simple as one single ingredient…chocolate of course!
The best part is you can create any shape you like using an inexpensive candy mold which is easy to find in most craft stores or online. The benefit of making your own to use for a sweet treat or as an add-in to your favorite baked good is that you get to control the ingredients. As someone who steers clear of dairy finding cute little dairy-free chocolates like these ones are few and far between. So I make my own!
These adorable little bite-sized chocolates are perfect with my Almond Butter Blossom Cookies, too!

Yield: about 30 pieces
Prep time: 10 minutes
Set time: 1 hour
- 3 c dairy-free chocolate pieces
- Silicone candy mold
- In a double broiler of microwave melt the chocolate pieces. Either method make sure to stir frequently to prevent burning. If using the double broiler method (my personal choice) melt over low heat.
- Once the chocolate is melted carefully pour into a sandwich bag or piping bag.
- Sniping the corner/end to create a small opening.
- Squeezing the bag from the top downward, gently squeeze the chocolate into the mold filling each cavity to the top.
- Gently tap the mold onto a hard surface to held the chocolate settle and remove air bubbles.
- Place the mold in the fridge to set for at least one hour before removing the chocolates.
- Eat as is for a sweet treat or use with my Almond Butter Blossom Cookies!
Storing: These chocolates keep longest in the fridge or freezer.
