Homemade Chocolate Bars – Donut and Sprinkle Themed
Last week I shared with you all these amazing sprinkle favours I made for my sisters bridal shower. And I’m back today with another bridal shower favour idea that is perfect for any themed shower. My sister’s bridal shower theme was donuts, because that girl LOVES donuts! Well these homemade chocolate bars are so cool and so perfect!
I am a huge fan of the Compartes brand: they have the coolest chocolate bars, but the packaging of the chocolates just takes it to a whole other level. I was inspired by the Compartes chocolate bars to make one for my sisters shower. To fit the theme, I made chocolate bars with sprinkles in them and found a really cool donut wallpaper that I used to wrap the chocolates in! They’re just so cool and they taste delicious! Even better: they’re so fun and easy to make! So let’s get to it!
dark or milk chocolate wafers (I got mine from Bulk Barn)

aluminum foil – try these gold ones for a even cooler look

DIRECTIONS – Homemade chocolate bars
Begin by adding a handful of chocolates into a microwavable bowl. Place into the microwave and let the chocolate melt. You want to make sure you don’t burn the chocolate. In my experience, 20 seconds is a good time, mixing the chocolate every 10 seconds.
Once the chocolate has melted, pour the chocolate into the chocolate bar mold. Next, add sprinkles to make some sprinkled chocolate bars. You can even add sprinkles to the bottom of the mold and then pour the chocolate, to get even more sprinkles!
Place the mold with the chocolate into the freezer. It takes literally less than a minute for the chocolate to solidify.
Next, lay out a sheet of aluminum foil and place the chocolate bar on top. This chocolate bar mold is great, because the chocolate comes out so easily!
Wrap the aluminum foil around the chocolate and seal the back with some tape.
Next, print out the donut wallpaper – the free downloadable wallpaper is linked above. Print the wallpaper on a regular 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper.
Now, cut the donut wallpaper so that it wraps around the chocolate bar, with a little bit of the aluminum showing on either end. This creates a nice look. I trimmed off 2 inches lengthwise to get this look for my chocolate bar mold. Seal the back with some tape and you’re done making these homemade chocolate bars!
After the bridal shower, I had people asking me what chocolate I used since it was quite delicious. I used a combination of milk and dark chocolate wafers from Bulk Barn and they were amazing!
