Want to totally win the gift giving game this year? This Valentine’s Day, you can make these chocolate game controllers, (yes you heard correctly CHOCOLATE game controllers), for only a few dollars! I made these for my boyfriend Craig, and I know he’s going to love them. It’s chocolate and gaming, what’s not to love right? You can even make these beyond Valentine’s Day just as a special surprise for someone special.
You will need:
- 1 Game Controller Chocolate Mold (Purchase Here)
- 1 Package (12oz) of Wilton White Candy Melts
- 1 Individual Package of Tropical Skittles
- 1 Individual Package of Sprees
- 1 Package of Treat Bags ($1 at Target)
- 1 Ceramic Bowl
Put a very small handful of candy melts aside before you begin. You will need them later. In a ceramic bowl, heat a little less than 1/3 of your candy melts package in the microwave for 1 minute on 50% power. When the candy is completely liquified, quickly begin pouring it into your mold (use a spoon to help it along if you need too.) When the mold is full tap it on a hard surface several times to let any air bubbles escape. Let the mold with the chocolate in it in the freezer for 15 minutes to make sure it has cooled.
After 15 minutes, take it out and gently turn the mold over with your hand on the chocolate. Tap it very gently and it should just fall right out. Repeat this process until you are out of chocolate. Feel free to reheat leftover chocolate that has stuck to the bowl each time because it will just liquify with the rest.
After you have finished doing this, you should have around 3 game controllers or so. Take the candy melts you put aside and melt them for 30 seconds at 50% power. You are now going to arrange two sprees and 8 skittles on each controller. As you can probably tell, there is an outline for where each piece of candy should go. Use the chocolate as glue. Put it on the bottom of each candy and stick it on. You will be surprised how well it stays after it has dried. Finally, insert your game controllers in each treat bag and tape them closed.
Give them to someone special! (:
