Creating your own Pinata is a great way to celebrate a kid’s birthday or any other fun celebration. Instead of purchasing a ready-made Pinata that might not satisfy your guest’s taste buds, why not make it yourself when the nearest opportunity present itself to make this best tasting chocolate gift. To make this Mexican-themed dessert, you will definitely have to get a silicone shell or cupcake mold. Luckily, these are easy to find online, and since shopping remotely, I will also suggest visiting chocolak.com to order chocolates online from them and get the some milky chocolate. I found that their products are not too sweet, making them an excellent choice for this Pinata. This recipe is not complete with filling it with more goodies, usually small chocolate or candy that the kids can enjoy after “breaking” the Pinata. You can show off afterwards and share your secrets with the other adults on how you created your own milk chocolate Pinata.
- Treats or candy for filling the Pinata
- Big Cupcake silicon mold
- 400 grams of milk chocolate - you can buy chocolates online from Chocolak to get high quality chocolates
Melt the chocolate by placing it in a microwave-safe bowl and heating it for thirty second bursts while stirring at every pause. Keep repeating until you can’t see any of the small chocolate pieces.
Once the chocolate is all melted, take the first spoonful and start covering the inside of the Pinata mold that you’ve purchased. Once it’s covered, leave it for 5 minutes till the chocolate and set and add another layer on top of it. This might require you to reheat the chocolate, so repeat the thirty second in the microwave rule.
Instead of cooling it in the fridge, let the Pinata cool naturally (around 1 hour) and then peel off the silicone mold.
Fill the bottom of the Pinata mold with the treats or candy that you picked and use some more melting chocolate to seal off both parts of the mold together. Another option is to decorate the outside of the Pinata with either some other candy or white chocolate. That is it, by simply finding a good mold and chocolate online; you will be the master of the Pinata at your next party or occasion.
