These Valentine’s Day Chocolate Lollipops are an easy treat to make and attach to those valentine’s — and so easy to customize the design and toppings to your taste!

I know I’ve mentioned this before, but I’ve never really been into cutesy foods much.

I think the reason for that is likely because when you’re a single adult, you don’t really have anyone to make those cute treats for whose eyes are going to light up like a 2 or 3 year old’s will (I mean, my husband’s eyes light up when I give him chocolate but it’s definitely not because of the cute design!).

The more I make these fun treats (like these Christmas Tree Cookies and this Snowman Cheese Ball) and see how much you love them, and my 3 year old loves them, the more fun I have making them!

And while I thought about making a chocolate Valentine’s Day version of these No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Pinwheels (and you easily could!) because of how crazy some people went over them, I decided I wanted to try something new, and maybe a little less finicky (not that the pinwheels are difficult, but the fudge does need to be at just the right temperature to roll easily).

It turns out I wasn’t that good at the cutesy designs anyways (see those two hearts? That’s about all I got), but the topping combinations?? Now those I can get creative with.

You can really make these chocolate lollipops anyway you want, in any shape you want, in any color you want, with any toppings you want. The only thing you need to do is to melt the chocolate over a double burner (this is the easiest way to get it perfectly smooth without having to dilute it with cream or butter — you want to stick with straight chocolate so that it will set completely and stay firm at room temperature), make a puddle, and stick the lollipop stick in before it’s set. Then decorate as desired!

This is how I set up my “double boiler” — you just need about an inch of simmering water under a heatproof bowl. Make sure the water doesn’t touch the bottom of the bowl, and add your chocolate in the top. Heat over medium heat until the chocolate is melted and smooth.

You can color the white chocolate pink or red with food coloring, or use colored chocolate wafers if you prefer. The wafers are usually flavored vanilla, while white chocolate obviously has a different flavor. Choose whichever you like best! If you’re using food coloring, be sure to use the gel instead of liquid because you don’t want your chocolate diluted.

You really can make these for any holiday — green and red for Christmas, add some candy canes, or pastels for Easter, or use any coloring for a birthday party theme.

Course Dessert
Servings 20 lollipops

Ingredients

  • 2 cups chocolate white, milk, semisweet or dark chocolate
  • lollipop sticks

S’mores Toppings (chocolate and white chocolate):

  • Crushed graham crackers
  • mini marshmallow bits

Toffee Almond:

  • slivered almonds
  • toffee bits

Almond Joy:

  • toasted coconut
  • slivered almonds

Sprinkled:

  • Sprinkles duh

Hearts:

  • Red and purple candy melts melted

M&M Heart:

  • Mini M&M’s

Cookies ‘n’ Cream:

  • crushed Oreos

Chocolate Oreo:

  • crushed Oreos

Cranberry Almond:

  • slivered almonds
  • dried cranberries

Instructions

  • In the top of a double boiler, melt chocolate over medium heat until smooth.
  • Pour into a piping bag or large freezer bag (you can do this step with a spoon, but I think piping it into a circle or “glob” is easier). Snip the end off so you have about a Â―” opening.
  • On a baking sheet lined with wax paper, pipe “globs” about 1.5″ in diameter. Insert lollipop sticks into the chocolate, then lightly bang the baking sheet on the table a few times to flatten the chocolate a bit.
  • Add your toppings as desired. If you’re wanting to write on the lollipops with other colors, you may want to pop them in the freezer for 5 minutes to firm them up.
  • Set in the refrigerator or freezer, then stack in an airtight container or place in small cellophane treat bags and tie with a ribbon as pictured.

    These are so cute! I have always enjoyed making cute food, but it is discouraging when you don’t feel like people are enjoying it after putting so much effort into it. So it is for sure more fun when you have the right people to share it with!

    These are so adorable, Ashley! I used to love making cutesy food when my kids were little, and now sadly they’re teens so I feel kind of silly doing it. haha These could definitely make me change my mind, and these would be adorable gifts for Valentine’s Day, too!

    Hi Ashley! I would be very happy to receive these for any occasion! I don’t do much “cute”, but wouldn’t it be fun to use a small clay pot with some florist foam and stick the pops in it using crushed chocolate cookies for “dirt”? 🙂

  4. Gayle @ Pumpkin 'N Spice says

    I’ve never really been into cutesy treats either because my husband also wouldn’t appreciate it, and I’m not really one to take the time to decorate unless it’s for a good reason. But this is such a fun post and would be perfect to wow that special someone on Valentine’s Day. So creative and looks delicious!

      I don’t do much for fancy decorations most times either, but I had a lot of fun with these! And I love being able to make a whole bunch of different ones at the same time!
