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.

Can you use other oil besides coconut oil?

Hello! You can substitute coconut oil with vegetable shortening (like crisco). Hope this helps!

I already ranked this but I have a QUESTION Can you substitute baking chocolate for chocolate chips? There are so many different flavors of baking chocolate available. Can you use almond bark? If you do, will they even TASTE like chocolate? If using a silicon ice cube trays or candy mold, would you still need to spray the mold compartments?

Hello there! Yes, you can substitute baking chocolate and almond bark. It should be delicious! Also you shouldn't have to spray a silicon tray. Enjoy!

I tried these this Christmas I lost two hours two bags of chocolate chips and my sanity first the amount of ingredients is NOT enough to fill two average ice cube trays bought at the dollar store Second I made a HECKUVA mess getting the chocolate INTO the trays tried my gravy ladle spoons with spouts everything basically I had melted chocolate strewn from one end of my kitchen to the other THAT said I know when I'm licked so I just melted some more chocolate chips and poured that over the mini Charleston Chew Candy Bars I had used as filling threw them in the freezer and forgot about them Got them out yesterday I will say they are DELICIOUS though nothing to look at LOL I'm at work jonesing for one right now My husband and I will likely fight over the remaining ones So it's TASTE that getRead More it the four stars Is it possible to use baking chocolate or almond bark instead of chocolate chips which are pricier Or will that change the delicious taste I have since purchased some shaped molds to use next year they are a tad smaller and might work better And WHAT is the best way to get the melted chocolate INTO the molds Pastry bag a special scoop or spoon If it hadn't been for the mess and frustration I could give five stars simply because they're so good But degree of difficulty and MESS make that a three-star ' Maybe I'll upgrade if someone can give me some hints

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!

Did they chocolates made from almond bark TASTE ok? We're they greasy at all? I have only used almond bark for dipping pretzels. The chocolates I made with chocolate chips were to DIE for. The coconut oil I used was the solid kind, melted first. They weren't really shiny and they weren't "pretty" (I didn't bother to dress them up since they had driven me insane) and they had little bits and shards of chocolate on all sides because of the mess the melted chocolate made as I spooned it into the ice cube trays compartments. I've since purchased silicon Christmas candy molds 75% off after Christmas! ) And will be trying these again next year because they were SOOOOO good!
