How to Make Candy Molds

Cut several 4-inch squares from aluminum foil. Fold up the edges to make a "dish" to hold the melted chocolate. Press your finger inside the dish and fold the foil around it.

Form the foil in holiday shapes such as Christmas trees, pumpkins, and hearts. For each foil mold, you will need 1 tablespoon of chocolate chips. Have an adult melt the chocolate in the microwave until it's smooth and creamy.

Carefully pour the melted chocolate into the molds. Let the chocolate cool for 2 or 3 hours. (If you want to speed up the cooling process, put the candy molds in the refrigerator.)

Once the chocolate has hardened, peel the foil off the candy shape.
