Popping Candy Chocolate Cups
Recipe type: Sweet Treats
  • 2 x 200 grams of dairy milk chocolate
  • 3 x 20 grams packets popping candy
  1. On a tray set out 30 mini chocolate truffle cases (or mini muffin cases)
  2. Break chocolate up into pieces and place in a heavy based microwave safe bowl.
  3. Heat on high for 1 minute and then stir the chocolate. I find there is still chunks of chocolate, but as I stir they melt away. I prefer to spend time stirring well to make sure the chocolate is melted than risk overheating in the microwave. If it is still very hard heat on high for 15 second bursts, stirring each time until it is melted.
  4. Open the popping candy and add it to the chocolate. Don’t open the popping candy and leave it in the open air as it starts to stick together.
  5. Mix the popping candy gently into the chocolate.
  6. Spoon the chocolate into the truffle cases.
  7. Place in the fridge to set. This will take a couple of hours. We left ours in the fridge over night.
  8. Remove from the fridge and take the popping candy chocolate cups out of the paper case.
  9. Place onto serving dish and watch and hear them disappear!
