Make Your Own Chocolate Advent Calendar
Prep time
Total time
This really isn't much of a recipe, but rather an idea and process. See the post above for chocolate suggestions to meet every dietary need, and inexpensive calendar ideas.
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: As many as you need!
  1. If using a prefilled calendar, carefully remove the mold from the calendar (you can usually open at least one end). Pop out the chocolates that it came with, and then thoroughly wash the mold to remove any residue. (See the tips in the post above regarding severe food allergies.)
  2. Melt the chocolate.
  3. Fill the molds with chocolate using a small teaspoon or a condiment squeeze bottle.
  4. Place the molds in the refrigerator for 20 to 30 minutes, or until the chocolate is set.
  5. If using a prefilled calendar, slide your new mold back into the calendar and close or seal the opening.
  6. If using a fillable calendar, pop the chocolates from the molds and place them in the days.
