chocolate pinata

Make this surprisingly fun and edible treat for any special occasion!

Step 1

In silicone melting pot, microwave chocolate Meltables™ candy at 50% power or defrost setting for one minute. Stir thoroughly in pot. Return to microwave stirring at 30 second intervals until smooth and completely melted.

Step 2

Pour into the top section of mold up to fill line. Gently tap it lightly to remove air bubbles.

Step 3

Insert the plastic middle piece directly into the top mold.

Step 4

Next, add the bottom mold directly into the top mold. Turn the mold over with the bottom mold on a flat surface. Press down until you cover all the edges.

Step 5

Put the mold in the fridge to set, which should be about 15 minutes.

Step 6

Loosen half from the mold by the bottom part of the mold, then the middle plastic piece and then the top mold.

Step 7

Repeat Steps 1-6 for a second half.

Step 8

On a plate, add a bit of water until it covers the surface. Microwave the plate for about 15 seconds or until warm. Remove the water and dry off the plate.

Step 9

Pick up one of the halves and place it edge side down on the plate for a few seconds to melt the edge around the chocolate just a little bit.

Step 10

Then, fill that half with the candy. Melt the edges of the second half on the plate, bring the two halves together and press gently.
TIP: You can use the tip of your finger to smooth the chocolate around the seam.

Step 11

Allow the pinata to set again by placing back in the refrigerator.

Step 12

When serving hit and break pinata with mallet.
