Preschoolers Make Beautiful Easter & Spring Chocolate!
Preschool Crafts for all abilities!  
for Ages 3 Years and Up    
Purple & Yellow Heart Shaped Chocolate Treats
Decadent Yellow and Milk Chocolate Covered Oreos!
Supplies Needed
  • Yellow, Purple and Light Milk Chocolate Melts
    Sample Chocolate Melts - Purple
  • Chocolate Molds
    We used this mold and a heart shaped mold.
  • Oreos or Other Sandwich Cookie (double stuffed are too big!)
  • Basic Kitchen Utensils
  • Microwave & Refrigerator
What To Do
  • To Make the Decadent Oreo Covered Chocolates
  1. Heat the yellow chocolate melts according to directions on the package (approx 1.5 minutes in the microwave).
  2. Stir to make smooth.
  3. Use a fine pastry brush to "paint" the decoration area of the mold. In my case it was a bunny or tulip. If you're like me and don't even know what a pastry brush is,  improvise! I used a tiny baby spoon.
  4. Put in refrigerator 5 minutes.
  5. Heat the light milk chocolate melts according to directions on the package (approx 1.5 minutes in the microwave).
  6. Stir to make smooth.
  7. Use a teaspoon to scoop the melted chocolate and put into the mold until 2/3 filled.
  8. Tap mold down lightly on counter to release any air bubbles.
  9. Place Oreo inside each mold until chocolate fills the sides (and possible part of the Oreo bottom as well)
  10. Put in refrigerator until completely set (maybe 15 minutes.)
  11. To unmold just turn upside down and gently press on the back of the mold or slightly twist the mold and they will pop out.
  12. You're done! Eat one to make sure they're perfect ;) Beautiful and tasty gifts for someone special!
  • To Make the 2 Tone Heart Shaped Chocolates
  1. Heat the yellow chocolate melts according to directions on the package (approx 1.5 minutes in the microwave).
  2. Stir to make smooth.
  3. Use a spoon to put some (1/3-1/2) of the yellow chocolate into your heart shaped (or other) mold.

  4. Tap mold down lightly on counter to release any air bubbles.
  5. Refrigerate until set (maybe 15 minutes, but I think less).
  6. Heat the purple milk chocolate melts according to directions on the package (approx 1.5 minutes in the microwave).
  7. Stir to make smooth.
  8. Use a spoon to fill the rest of each mold with the purple chocolate.
  9. Tap mold down lightly on counter to release any air bubbles.
  10. Put in refrigerator until completely set (maybe 15 minutes.)
  11. To unmold just turn upside down and gently press on the back of the mold or slightly twist the mold and they will pop out.
