Black forest is one of those indulgent chocolate treats that often get overlooked when making chocolate candy.

Once set, you can dip them into chocolate and garnish them as you wish. If you want, you can use a variety of different chocolates and toppings to make a variety of candies.

3. Chocolate Covered Potato Chips

If you like to mix flavors and have something savory and salty alongside something sweet, then these chocolate-covered potato chips are perfect for you.

They’re a great treat for sharing with others and despite their chocolate coating, they’re a lot lighter than many other recipes on this list.

They’re very easy to make as well, as all you need to do is dip potato chips into melted chocolate and let the chocolate set. You can add extra toppings, such as nuts, into the melted chocolate if you wish.

4. Chocolate Dipped Apples

Chocolate-dipped apples are the perfect treat for Halloween or fall. This is a great recipe to make with kids as well and can help them get interested in cooking and how food is made.

You will need to insert some wooden sticks into the core of your apples and make sure these are secure. Dip your apples into melted chocolate and then roll them into nuts or candy for the finishing touches.

Remember to allow the chocolate to set before eating. This should take around 20 minutes.

5. Chocolate Raisin Clusters

Chocolate raisins make for a great chocolatey snack and these clusters take them one step further.

Raisins themselves are a great source of vitamins and minerals so you can even try to convince yourself that you’re eating healthily! The first step is to coat your raisins in melted chocolate.

Once they’re coated, you can use a spoon to divide the mixture into small clusters and the clusters should then be refrigerated until set.

You can add other ingredients if you wish, such as other dried fruit, corn flakes, or peanut butter.

6. Easy Homemade Filled Chocolates

Filled chocolates are popular treats for Valentine’s Day and Christmas and now you can make your own.

You can have lots of fun making these because they require chocolate molds and with so many different fun and quirky molds available, you can make filled chocolates of any shape you wish.

The first step is to line the molds with melted chocolate and allow this to cool. You may need to do this twice to make sure that you get a solid case for your filling. You can then fill the molds with whatever flavor filling you wish.

7. Exploding Truffles

Another truffle recipe, but this one has a surprise in store thanks to the inclusion of popping candy. The truffle ganache is simple to make and only requires chocolate and cream that are melted together and then refrigerated.

Once cooled, this can then be made into balls and rolled into the popping candy. Be careful that you don’t prepare the popping candy too early as the popping effect can be ruined if the candy is exposed to humidity.

For the final touch, dip your truffles into coating chocolate and allow to set.

8. Ghirardelli Peppermint Bark Recipe

Nothing says Christmas like peppermint bark! Christmas can be a very busy time but thankfully, this bark is quick and easy to make.

The bark is made from a layer of dark chocolate for the base and white chocolate in the middle and is then topped with some crushed peppermint candies.

The contrasts in the colors make this bark look as good as it tastes. You can also add some peppermint extract to the white chocolate to make it even mintier.

9. Homemade English Toffee

This is another recipe that is good for the festive season but can also be enjoyed all year round.

First, you will need to make the toffee and this tastes best when made with salted sweet cream butter, although you can substitute other types of butter or margarine if you wish.

For the topping of your toffee, you can use a variety of different nuts and semi-sweet chocolate chips. The chocolate will melt when it comes into contact with your hot toffee.

Leave the assembled toffee to cool for a couple of hours and it’s ready!

10. Homemade Peanut Butter Cups

Peanut butter cups are a favorite of many people and this recipe will help you to make your own right at home. They’re a lot easier to make than you might think, too!

The main ingredients are peanut butter and chocolate chips. You can use any brand of peanut butter that you wish but you will get better results with creamy or chunky peanut butter.

For the chocolate chips, you can use any kind of chocolate, whether it be milk, dark, or white. Depending on your tastes and how sweet your peanut butter is, you can reduce the amount of sugar used.

11. Mocha Truffles

Please the coffee addict in your life with these mocha truffles. The ganache for these truffles includes some espresso or strongly brewed coffee to give the truffles a little extra kick.

Strong coffee is best as the flavor of weak coffee can be lost when added to the other ingredients.

As well as the coffee, you will also need some heavy cream, chocolate, butter, salt, and vanilla extract to make the filling.

Once it is all mixed and refrigerated, the truffles can be dipped into melted chocolate for a smooth coat.

12. Oreo Cookie Balls

Oreo cookies are a great ingredient when making chocolate candy and they’re one of only three ingredients that make these Oreo cookie balls.

You need to crush your Oreos (including the cream) until they make a powder.

This powder is then mixed with cream cheese and shaped into balls. You can then coat the balls with whatever coating you want, such as vanilla candy or milk chocolate.

13. Phyllo Chocolate Cigars

These phyllo chocolate cigars are great party food and are bound to be a big hit with your guests. You can use fresh filo for this recipe but store-bought filo is easier to work with when you have to roll it into cylinders.

They’re simple to make as you only need to place some chocolate in the middle of the filo, roll it, seal the edges with melted butter, and then bake.

14. Pretzel Turtles

These might look complicated, but they only require three ingredients and are very simple to make and assemble. The base of the treats is a pretzel, which then has a Rolo candy placed on top.

All you have to do is melt the candy in the oven until it becomes soft and then place a pecan nut onto the softened chocolate. Chill the candy until the chocolate sets again and they’re ready to eat. 

15. Rocky Road Fudge

If you love rocky road ice cream then you’re bound to love this rocky road fudge. It’s incredibly quick and easy to make but is completely delicious.

Pour your mixture into a pan and allow it to cool.
