Easy Chocolate Candy Cups

Well today I’m sharing how to make easy chocolate candy cups! These are so easy and fast you are going to love these!

First of all, these are HUGE crowd pleasers and are delicious! I actually should have added a row of exclamation marks because these are so simple, but I won’t. Okay maybe one more time!!!!!!!!!!!!

A bit of a backstory on these little pieces of fast chocolate cups. The first time I made these for my family suggestions what to fill these with came out so fast it was hysterical. Everyone was truly screaming out ideas for these sweets’ ideas. Then we were laughing so hard we couldn’t talk.

You know what I’m talking about. The kind of laughing when you have trouble standing up. The kind when your stomach actually hurts. It may seem odd to some we were so hysterical; however, with my family it has been known to happen on occasion over little things.

Okay so are you ready for this recipe?

Items Needed:

  • Chocolate Melt or double boiler
  • Chocolate melting wafers
  • Mini silicone cupcake holders
  • Silicone spatula
  • Silicone pastry brush

Tip 1: If you are using white chocolate and not melting wafers, add a bit of vegetable oil. This helps it have a tempered affect.

Tip 2: It’s especially important to continuously stir the candy in a double boiler to avoid seizing which happens extremely easy to white chocolate

Tip 3: Never get water in chocolate when melting because it will seize

Step 1: Using Melting Wafers

Begin with melting the chocolate wafers. If using a candy melt, follow the instructions on the packaging. I highly recommend this Melter.

After melting using a silicone pastry brush begin adding a layer of your chocolate. Because this sweet treat is melted when adding this to the cup it will drop to the bottom a bit. This is normal so don’t worry.

  1. You are blowing my mind,Cindy! I had no idea you could even make cups like these – that is so cool. I can’t wait to try them and share them with the littles. They are going to be delighted! Hope your week is off to a great start, CoCo

  2. They look delicious, but wondering when you add the “filling”, ice cream, gelato, peanut butter etc? Also wondering if you can color the white chocolate? I’m having a party & would love them to go with the theme.

    1. You can purchase chocolate color melts. They sell them on Amazon and at Michaels

      Adding liquid color will seize the chocolate

      How about marbleizing, I made up a word, lol

      With color chocolate melts? Use a skewer to move tge color or

      brush white chocolate and add the color melt with a different brush.
