Chocolate Suckers

Created by: Sharon Garofalow, Cupcakes and Cutlery

In our home, we celebrate New Year’s Eve as a family and it’s a night we look forward to all year long. I like to come up with ways to keep the kids entertained so we can all make it to midnight!

This activity not only keeps them busy, it lets them be creative AND make a special treat. A quick stop in the fridge to set the chocolate and the kids get to enjoy their DIY suckers in no time!

  • 1 package (24 oz.) Kroger Chocolate Bark Coating
  • Sucker sticks
  • Assorted toppings: decorative sprinkles, toasted coconut, chopped nuts, candied ginger, chocolate candies, etc.
  • Quart-sized plastic zipper bag
  • Wax paper
  1. Place wax paper over several baking sheets.
  2. Lay out sucker sticks on waxed paper, making sure to leave a few inches between them.
  3. Set out your toppings so they are easy to get to.
  4. Place the plastic zipper bag inside of a glass, with the zippered side folded out over the top. (This will help you pour the melted chocolate into the bag without creating a huge mess!)
  5. Follow the directions to melt the chocolate coating in the microwave. (Microwave in approximately 30 second intervals, stirring each time, until smooth. Do not overcook.)
  6. Let cool for about a minute, then pour melted chocolate into the plastic zipper bag and close.
  7. Cut a small hole in one corner of the bag.
  8. Pipe chocolate onto the waxed paper, taking care to cover the top ½” of the sucker stick. Also make sure the chocolate doesn’t overlap with the sucker next to it.
  9. Add toppings as desired.
  10. Place in fridge to set (approximately 20 minutes).
