Did you know that you could use your ice cube tray to make homemade candy? That's right! With our recipe for Ice Cube Chocolates, you can make your very own gourmet-style chocolates right at home. These homemade chocolates are especially great for gift-giving or setting out on a tray at your next holiday party.

What You'll Need

  • 2 1/2 cups dark or milk chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • Assorted fillings (peanut butter, shredded coconut, nuts, caramels, chocolate-coated candy, mini marshmallows, etc.)

What to Do

  1. Lightly coat 2 plastic ice cube trays with cooking spray.
  2. In a medium microwave-safe bowl, combine chocolate chips and oil. Microwave 60 to 90 seconds or until chips are melted, stirring occasionally. Pour chocolate into ice cube trays, filling each cube about one-third full. Place trays in freezer 2 minutes. Remove trays from freezer and tilt to make sure chocolate coats all sides of each cube.
  3. Place trays back in freezer 2 minutes or until chocolate has thickened slightly. Tilt again to make sure chocolate coats all sides of cubes with a thicker coat of chocolate. Place trays in freezer 2 more minutes or until set.
  4. Fill each chocolate shell with about 1 teaspoon of your desired filling. Cover filling with melted chocolate and tap ice cube trays on counter to level chocolate. Pour more melted chocolate on top.
  5. Place trays in freezer 1 hour or until hardened. Remove trays from freezer and let sit 5 minutes. Unmold chocolates by lightly twisting trays.


To fancy them up a bit, drizzle with white chocolate and decorate each chocolate piece with holiday sugar decorations.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

The typical candy mold is usually kind of small. This way, you can get a good amount of filling inside the chocolate. When I make this recipe, I must keep a timer on hand because I will forget and bam! So I can not wait to thy this. Too late to have them for Easter but the next holiday is Earth Day, lol!

What a great idea. I would never have thought of using ice cube trays. What the different size and shapes of trays now you can dedicate one type of candy to each type of try. So now, it is not necessary that you purchase those candy molds.

My ice cube chocolates were made with Almond Bark some filled with miniature Reece's (white original) some filled with maraschino cherries. I did the simplest white bark drizzle over 28 chocolates to finish them. My "bark" already had the coconut oil added. Great festive addition for our holiday gift trays 2017!
