DIY Valentine's Day Chocolate Box
Today is Valentine’s Day do you have something special for your someone special?  If not I have this easy DIY Valentine’s Day chocolate box gift sure to titillate your love.  My girls and I love chocolate so much we got creative in the kitchen and created a box completely made out of chocolate.  My girls were excited to see something they created actually work and the plus is they get to eat it too!

The great thing about this box is it takes little to no time to make and if you have chocolate chips laying around you can make this box in under a couple of hours.  If you have strawberries you can dip them in chocolate as well or buy strawberries already pre-made for you.  This box can hold ice cream, brownies, cheese cake, engagement rings, you name it you can do lots of stuff with this chocolate box.

Serves: Makes One Chocolate Box
Ingredients
  • 1 Cup Chocolate Chips or Chocolate Candy Melts (your amount of chocolate may differ based on the size of your container)
  • ½ tsp of oil of choice (olive or coconut oil)
  • 1 plastic container of choice
Instructions
  1. Take your plastic container and with a basting brush rub all over the inside of the box with oil. This will help the chocolate not to stick to the box once it is hard.
  2. Take a small sauce pan and on medium heat melt about one cup of chocolate chips or chocolate melts. The amount of chocolate needed will depend on the size of box you are making. The one we made is (4.5" X 3.5" X 1.75")
  3. Once all your chocolate has melted pour it into your oiled plastic container and use a spoon to spread it up the sides. If you chocolate is too hot at first and slides down the sides let it sit for a minute or two and then proceed using the spoon and spread the chocolate up the sides until you can get it as even as possible.
  4. Once you have the chocolate even on all sides and the bottom as smooth as you can get it put it in your freezer.
  5. Give your box at least an hour to freeze or more depending on the type of freezer you have.
  6. Once your chocolate is totally frozen carefully take your box and flip it upside down in your hand. Run the bottom of the plastic container under warm water and on the sides until the box starts to slide out.
  7. Carefully slide the box out and place on a plate and put back into the freezer.

    Love the idea for the chocolate box,just would like to know what particular kind of container did you use as I love the depth /height it gives the chocolate and it really shows off the details on the sides.Knowing what you used exactly will give me a better idea when I’m hunting down my own as I am a visual person and this would help alot. Thanks so much. HAVE A GREAT DAY!

      Hi Liz,

      I just used a TO GO container from a salad bar I had eaten at. I have also used containers from an Indian restaurant that are similar, but they held their rice in them.
