Chocolate Heart Lollipops Ingredients
So what do you need to make these gorgeous, homemade heart shaped chocolate Valentine lollipop treats? Well you’ll be pleased to know there are only a few ingredients.
Along with chocolate pops molds you will need either some kind of white chocolate as well as coloured melting chocolate and sprinkles. Dark chocolate would work if that is what you prefer. In addition you’ll need lollipop sticks and toothpicks. A squeeze bottle or piping bag is also useful although not essential.
It’s up to you whether you prefer to use white almond bark or white chocolate chips for this Valentine’s Day treat. The reason for choosing white chocolate is the red and/or pink sprinkles really stand out on the finished chocolate heart lollipops. As for the melting chocolate, go for red, pink or both and also pick out some nice Valentine’s Day looking sprinkles.
How to Make Valentine’s Day Chocolate Lollipops
First of all, it’s not hard to make chocolate lollipops with molds! I’ve made these heart shaped chocolate Valentine lollipop treats and didn’t have any issues. Let’s take a look at the instructions.
So first of all you will need to rinse and dry the chocolate pops molds before using them. Next melt some of the melting chocolate and then fill the mold details carefully. This is where the piping bag or squeeze bottle would come in handy but you can still do this without.
Now melt another colour of chocolate and then add that on top of the first colour. Drop the chocolate pops molds on to the countertop to get rid of any little air bubbles in there.
Next, add your lollipop sticks and then you can fill up the molds, adding sprinkles too if you like. Tap the molds again to make sure there aren’t any air bubbles in this Valentine’s Day treat.
All that’s left to do now is let the Valentine lollipops set in the refrigerator.
What Kind of Chocolate Pops Molds Work Best?
I like to use fancy molds with lettering on or you might like to use ones with little hearts or other words or details on. That way the first colour you add to the molds will settle into the lettering or design, as you can see in the photos.
Use metal, plastic or silicon molds, as you prefer, and any shape or size. Of course chocolate heart lollipops are great for a Valentine’s Day chocolate treat, so use heart shaped ones if you can. I used these molds to make mine and they came out really well.
This recipe would be good for other occasions too. Once you know how to make a chocolate lollipop with molds you can try green ones for St Patrick’s Day, orange and black ones for Halloween, and so on.
5 Tips for Perfect Results

- If you’re filling small details or letters, it’s easier to use a toothpick to make sure the shapes are filled with the melted chocolate.
- Don’t rush these heart shaped chocolate Valentine lollipop treats because the more care you take the better they’ll come out.
- Experiment with different types of chocolate and different colours. If you aren’t a white chocolate fan try milk chocolate instead.

- These will stay freshest in an airtight container at room temperature between layers of waxed paper. Wrapping them in cellophane is optional.
