Tips for Making a Chocolate Piñata

The Perfect Mold. These molds are made out of plastic and easily snap together. They come in many shapes as well as 2 different sizes – large (like we used) or a smaller version that is great for individual use!

Pinata Prizes. On all the molds, the hole for placing in treats is the same size, so keep in mind that the items are small and should be able to fit into a hole about 2 inches in diameter.

Spread the Chocolate Evenly. The step-by-step instructions are below, but be sure when you add the chocolate you spread it evenly throughout your mold to avoid cracks or holes!

Be patient. Once the mold is filled with chocolate it will need time to set, so be sure to do this in advance!

Materials

Step-by-Step Instructions 

Step 1

If using one of the large molds, melt 12-24 ounces of chocolate according to instructions on the packaging.

Step 2

Pour the liquid chocolate into the mold, plug the hole with the top, and then rotate the mold so the chocolate spreads throughout and as evenly as possible.

Step 3

Place the mold in the refrigerator for 1-2 minutes.

Step 4

Remove the mold from the refrigerator and continue to rotate to make sure the chocolate is continuing to spread evenly.

Step 5

Repeat this step several times before removing the plug to ensure that all the melted chocolate has spread.

 

Step 6

Place in the refrigerator, without the plug, to set completely for at least 30 minutes.

Step 7

Once completely solid, remove the mold.

Step 8

Add the candy through the hole.

Step 9

When ready to flip, cover the hole up with a piece of thick paper, or cover it back up with the mold and flip instead.

Step 10

Decorate based on your preferences.

Step 11

Keep in the refrigerator until it’s party time, and provide a hammer to do the smashing!
