My son loves chocolate and I love doing crafty things, so a “make your own emoji chocolate bars” kit sounded like the perfect blend of two of our favorite things. It looks fun! It looks easy! We got this! …or do we?

We started with this Chocolate Emoji Maker kit compliments of Zimpli Kids.When I checked Amazon, it was only available in the UK, but there were other emoji molds to choose from.

The directions are pretty simple: Melt chocolate, squirt on templates, refrigerate for 20 minutes, then eat your masterpiece. So let’s get started!

How to Make Your Own Chocolate Emoji Bars

Step 1 – Prepare your emoji template

There are six different designs to choose from, each rated by difficulty.  Choose your emoji template and cut it out. Each kit comes with enough chocolate to make two bars, so my son chose the sunglasses emoji for himself, and he picked out the hearts for me.

Step 2 – Melt the chocolate

Put the chocolate packets in a large bowl full of warm water. You don’t need to heat it on the stove or get it really hot. Plain warm water from the tap will work. Once you let them sit for a minute, you’ll want to knead them and help squash out all the lumps until it’s nice and smooth.

Step 3 – Snip the end and start drawing

The kit comes with three flavors- dark, white and milk chocolate. Start with the dark chocolate, and cut the corner off just a little so the chocolate comes out nice and fine. You’ll use the dark to go over the black lines, the white for the white parts, and then you fill in the rest with the milk chocolate. It’s harder than it sounds.

Step 4 – Put it in the fridge to set

Once your masterpiece is complete, put it in the fridge to harden into a delicious Belgian chocolate emoji bar. It takes about 20 minutes, then you flip the little plastic tray over to reveal the beautiful emoji faces:

Nailed It!

I can promise you our’s tasted better than they looked! The chocolate was a little hard to control, and they sure didn’t look pretty, but it was fun to do and even more fun to eat afterwards!
