Chocolate lollies
You can make chocolate lollies in the same way. Make sure the chocolate blobs are nice and thick, lay a lolly stick down the centre of each, decorate, then leave to set.


  1. Ask a grown-up to tear off some big sheets of baking parchment. Draw around a glass or saucer with a pencil to make big button shapes. Turn the paper over.

  2. Spoon a blob of chocolate into the middle of each circle and use a paint brush to spread it to the edges of the circle. Don’t worry if it isn’t neat.

  3. Decorate each button with sprinkles, sweets or blobs of other coloured chocolate.

  4. Leave the buttons to cool and set really hard, in the fridge if the room is hot. Once they are hard, peel them off the paper carefully and wrap up or eat.
