Creating Homemade Super Mario Chocolates for Party Favors

super mario chocolate mouldA great way to save money when planning your Super Mario party is by creating your own party favors. You have plenty of choices from creating your own coloring book to making homemade chocolates. We decided to try creating Super Mario Bros chocolates to see how they would turn out. Hopefully you can learn from delicious experiment!

Super Mario Chocolate Mold
The first approach we tried was creating chocolate lollipops. We used the chocolate mold below.

We simply melted a few chocolate pellets in a double boiler and poured it into the Super Mario Mold with a skewer as the stick portion of the lollipop. The only 'trick' here is to ensure you have enough chocolate on the stick portion to provide support for the chocolate.

All in all we were very pleased the way these turned out. They looked great and the kids definitely liked them! If we were to include these in our gift bags we would also include a Video Game controller chocolate mold to the package.

Super Mario Character Molds
The second set of molds we used were MUCH more detailed and included a whole set of Super Mario characters. You can see a set of them below or here. The set included 10 different characters including: Mario, Luigi, Toad, Princess, Bowser and more.

These molds didn't turn out quite as well. The Princess, Toad, Turtles and Bowser chocolates turned out REALLY neat but the smaller moulds (Mario, Luigi, Wario, etc...) weren't as good. Also, we filled up the first set with too much chocolate and this took away from the final product. The next set (not pictured) with less chocolate per-mold turned out MUCH better. The neat thing about these molds is that they can also be used for soap, candles, candy, etc... So they are definitely worth keeping around for more projects!

To finish the chocolates off before placing them in a party favor package we would wrap them in a cello-plastic and place a ribbon on the top. For the second molds you can include a whole set of characters in a bag whereas the first molds you would probably only include one or two chocolate lollipops. These will surely be a hit in their gift bags!
