How to make a hollow chocolate ball filled with candy. This is a fun recipe and makes a great Christmas gift for kids.

These are easy to make with a half sphere chocolate mold. I made two coats of thin chocolate and then joined the two halves together after I filled it. You can add your favorite candy. I used Kisses, peppermint candies, and candy coated chocolates. You can add any candy that you want to.

I used chocolate chips because I had a hard time finding chocolate melting wafers. I used a Wilton chocolate melting pot to melt my chocolate because it's so easy to use.

These make really fun gifts for kids at a holiday party. They can have them for dessert and eat the candy plus the outer shell. I have some tips for melting the chocolate in my how to make a hollow chocolate ball with candy inside post, so click over for more ways to melt chocolate.

  • 11.5 ounce bag of milk chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil (optional)
  • Christmas candy
  • 3 peppermint candies

Melt the chocolate in a double boiler or melting pot. You can also microwave in 30 second bursts. Add coconut oil and stir well.
Spoon melted chocolate into the mold. Use the back of a spoon to cover the surface. Repeat with the remaining 5 cavities. Place the mold in the freezer for 5 minutes to set up. Repeat with more chocolate and freeze for another 5 minutes.
Heat a small ceramic plate in the microwave for 2 minutes. Unmold the chocolate carefully and set on a chilled plate. Hold the spheres upside down on the hot plate for a second to create a smooth edge.
Fill with desired candy.
Take another sphere and melt the top of it to create a smooth edge. Place the sphere on top of the filled half and press together. You can use gloved fingers to fill in any holes with melted chocolate.
Unwrap the peppermint candies. Use a small amount of melted chocolate to glue the peppermint on top of the DIY wonder ball.
