Mmmm, chocolate! I love chocolate, but playing with it can be such a messy situation. The only way I think that it would be fun is with super fun molds to use it with. Like these dragon molds that made these dragon chocolate bars!
I found these super cool molds on Etsy. There are so many fun homemade things on that website. It’s fun to see how other’s can be so creative and in turn use their products to make something of your own. Originally these molds were for soap! Really any kind of mold can be used for food, but always make sure to ask if the silicone they use to make the molds are food safe. It wouldn’t be great to find out the mold you purchased isn’t supposed to be used for food and could contain harmful chemicals. No one wants to consume chemicals when they eat chocolate.
When I made these I was at my parent’s house back in North Dakota, and the town grocery store is super small with hardly anything to choose from. Meaning that these dragon chocolate bars were pretty basic with only using good ole’ almond bark chocolate, peanut butter, and a caramel filling. They were so fun to make though and I can’t wait to find other fun molds to use and try other flavor combos!
What makes chocolate even more fun is that you can get pretty crazy with flavor combinations. You can always stick to classic flavors like peanut butter or caramel. Or you can go out of the box and do something like cookie butter or something more fun like stuffing it with little candies like a little surprise!
I find that using nice big soap molds for chocolate can leave endless possibilities since it’s so thick and big! When I made these it can literally feed 3-4 people or just one person in a few portions. It’s at least a 4 serving chocolate bar.

Start by melting the chocolate. I find it easier to melt in a piping bag. Place the mold on a flat surface. Completely fill the mold with chocolate and then place into the freezer until the sides have become solid but the middle is still melted.
If you are using small molds, then fill them with the chocolate and then flip over to let the excess chocolate drip out. Scrape the edges and let set.
Carefully tip the excess chocolate out of the mold. Place your choice of filling in the center, but don’t fill it completely to the top. Make sure you leave a little room to top with more chocolate to lock the filling in.
Put more melted chocolate on top and put into the freezer once again until completely solid. When the chocolate is solid and no longer soft, carefully remove from the mold.
