Learn how to make delicious DIY candy bars!

It's World Chocolate Day on July 7 and there's no better way to celebrate than with homemade candy bars. Creating your own candy bars at home is not only easy, but super fun too, and the possibilities for flavors and decorations are endless! Learn how to create homemade candy bars with this simple step-by-step tutorial by Bree Bakes.

Making your own candy bars is as easy as melting chocolate or Candy Melts, moulding and decorating. For this fun tutorial, Bree has made four versions to inspire you – edible cookie dough, funfetti, ice cream and Oreo-flavored. Let’s get started!


How to make homemade candy bars step-by-step 


step 1

Pour your melted chocolate into a piping bag and fill your moulds with chocolate until you reach an even layer. Gently tap your mould on to your workspace to remove air bubbles. 


step 2

Place your mould on a flat surface in the freezer for 5-7 minutes until the chocolate is set and hard to the touch. Gently peel back the mould to check before removing the entire bar.


step 3

Once your chocolate is set, remove it from the pieces from the mould and grab your decorative pieces. 


step 4

Now it's time to decorate your candy bars! Use drizzled chocolate or a kitchen torch to melt the surface of the bar, then immediately apply sprinkles or decor pieces before your chocolate hardens.


step 5

To create the cookie dough candy bar, drizzle white chocolate on to the bar and apply sprinkles. Adhere the cookie dough ball on to the bar using a drop of chocolate.


step 6

To create the funfetti candy bar, use a kitchen torch to melt the surface of the chocolate and apply sprinkles and the rainbow icing decoration.


step 7

To create the ice cream bar, use the kitchen torch to adhere the sprinkles and the piece of sugar cone. Add a little of the pink chocolate to the corner of the bar to adhere the mine ice cream cone decoration to resemble melted ice cream. 


step 8

To create the Oreo-flavored bar, use a kitchen torch to adhere the sprinkles and the Oreo cookie piece. 


step 9

Time to tuck in! If you can resist eating them all, you can store leftovers at room temperature in an air tight container.
