A Chocolate Heart Candy Box is such a fun way to add a little extra touch to the gift for your special someone! And they can enjoy the gift twice!
Chocolate is truly one of those perfect things in life! Well, at least for me it is! LOL! I adore chocolate! It’s smooth, creamy, luscious, very versatile, yummy and good for the soul! It’s a win-win don’t ya think?
One of my goals for 2018 is to try something new each month. Since Valentines Day is right around the corner, I thought it would be fun to attempt to make something I have wanted to try for a long time and that is making a candy box out of chocolate!
Making a Chocolate Heart Box is easier than you think! Now that I made my first one, I can’t wait to make more!
To make this box, I used candy melt wafers, however, you could easily use many other types of chocolate to achieve the same result.
I was able to find everything I needed easily except for the heart shaped mold. The mold wasn’t available at any of the craft supply stores I frequent. However, I was able to find the chocolate heart box mold at Country Kitchen SweetArt.

To make this Chocolate Heart Box, you will need the following:
Pink candy wafers (6 oz)
Chocolate candy wafers (10 oz)
Chocolate Heart Box mold
Various chocolate molds
*I found all of my molds at Country Kitchen SweetArt. They have a website as well.
Microwave safe bowl
To make the heart box:
Melt the candy wafers according to manufacturers directions in a microwave safe bowl. While those are melting, place a small funnel on top of an empty squeeze bottle. When the wafers have reached a smooth consistency, carefully pour the melted candy into the funnel and let the melted candy into the squeeze bottle. Do this very carefully so you don’t end up wearing any of the hot candy.
Once the squeeze bottle is full, place the lid onto the bottle. **Before you put the melted wafers into this mold, you will need to support the top of the mold as I did in the picture so the chocolate is even once you add it to the mold.
Squeeze the melted chocolate candy into the hearts on the mold.
Once you have the mold filled, carefully tap the mold on the counter so that you can get all of the air bubbles out.
Place the mold then into the fridge and let it set for 30 minutes or so. I let ours stay in there for an hour as I was working on other projects at the same time.
When you are ready to assemble the box, carefully remove the chocolate heart box onto a plate. To do this, take a plate and place it on top of the mold. Then turn the plate over while holding onto the mold. Then fill repeat the process with the additional candies you made.
Assemble the candies inside the box however you would like.
The great thing about this heart box is that you can fill it with any type of chocolate, snacks (such as nuts) or maybe even an engagement ring if you so choose!
