Make Chocolate Lollipops with the Kids
Kids will love making chocolate lollipops. They are easy to make and they can have fun decorating them with different sprinkles or they can be plain too.
Does it matter what kind of chocolate you use for the chocolate lollipops?
You can do white chocolate, milk chocolate, semi-sweet chocolate and/or dark chocolate. While I personally love semi-sweet and dark chocolate for the chocolate lollipops if it’s for kids I would use milk chocolate since it’s obviously sweeter. If you want to add color to the chocolate lollipops then you want to use white chocolate and the coloring to the melted white chocolate.
For myself, I find the most important thing about chocolate is to use quality chocolate. If you like the taste and texture of the chocolate chips then you’re good to go to use it for the chocolate lollipops.
Tips for Making Chocolate Lollipops
Melting the Chocolate
There are a couple of ways you can melt the chocolate depending on how much time you have and your preference. You can microwave it but do it in short intervals. Using a microwavable bowl put the chocolate in the microwave on low at one-minute intervals stirring in between the intervals to get smooth melted chocolate.
The second option is to melt the chocolate in a double boiler on medium heat, stirring constantly.
Pouring the Chocolate
Once you have your melted chocolate you can pour it into the lollipop molds. I suggest using a spoon to pour the chocolate into the mold as they are not big and it will not be as messy. Basically, this way you are able to pour small amounts of chocolate out at a time. Fill the mold as close to the top as you can without going over.

Adding the Sticks
If you have to buy a chocolate mold then you can get this one HERE on Amazon that also comes with the lollipop sticks on Amazon. Place the stick into the mold so that it’s sticking about halfway into the chocolate. If the mold is larger then you will have to place the stick up higher to support the solid chocolate lollipop. Make sure to roll the stick around in the chocolate and that it’s completely covered in chocolate so that it will stay in place.

Yes, it really is that easy to make chocolate lollipops and if you don’t have all of the materials to make it you can find chocolate molds and sticks on Amazon or other stores for a very reasonable price.
One last tip for Cooling the Chocolate
As mentioned the chocolate needs to be completely cooled and hardened before you take them out of the mold. One way we like to have the set is to put them on a cookie sheet and put them in a freezer keep the sheet level. You do not want to tip the mold otherwise it won’t set properly. As well putting them in the freezer has them set quicker, you can check after about 15 minutes.
