We love pop its, and chocolate pop it’s make them even more fun! I got our first one to entertain our youngest while waiting in the pick up line for his older siblings! Then our older two started brining them home from “treasure box” in school. Slowly we amassed quite a collection and whenever I go to put one away I find myself mindlessly popping it!
Our kids have been begging to try the viral Pop It Treats and I have to admit I find the idea of a chocolate bar you can customize intriguing so this weekend we finally tried it. The kids had so much fun filling pop it bubbles with candy and spooning melted chocolate over the top.
A quick 15-20 minutes in the fridge and they are ready to go!
As a house with a severe nut allergy I love how customizable this recipe is! My oldest son can’t have MMS because they are produced in a facility with nuts so he made a s’mores one with mini marshmallows and crushed graham crackers!
The kids are already planning the next round of treats using their favorite fidget toy!
Ingredients for Chocolate Pop it treats
melting chocolate: any flavor of chocolate chips or melting wafers work great.
toppings: toppings work best if they fit into the pop it bubbles. M&Ms ,cookie dough bites, sprinkles, crushed graham crackers, mini marshmallows, dried cranberries, and nuts all work great.
How to make Chocolate Pop it treats:
Wash and dry your pop its
Place your topping in the bubbles of your pop its. The kids really enjoyed this part and it made for great entertainment on a yucky day!
In a small microwave safe bowl melt chocolate in 30 second increments stirring between.
Spoon the melted chocolate into your pop its. If you want individual strips don’t cover the dividing lines of your pop it with chocolate. Carefully bang your chocolate filled pop it on the counter to bring any air bubbles to the pop.
Pop any air bubbles with a tooth pick and add more chocolate as needed.Refrigerate your pop its for 20 minutes or until the chocolate has set. Carefully remove your strips of chocolate. Enjoy!
Supplies for Pop it Treats:
You will need pop its for this recipe. We use these that are made with a safe silicone designed to be ok for young kids to chew on. When we want smaller treats we use these keychain ones that are normally on the kid’s backpacks!
Tips for making Pop it Treats:
Use a plate: I advise having kids fill their pop its on a plate to make clean up easier.
Remove air bubbles: you want to remove air bubbles in the chocolate and help all the pop it bubbles get filled so I recommend banging you pop it a few times to bring nay air bubbles to the surface. You can use a tooth pick to pop them and refill any areas of the pop it that need it!
Refrigerate: stick your pop it treats in the refrigerator for 20 minutes to help them set.

You can put pop its in the freezer short term to help the chocolate set but I don’t advise that you store them in the freezer.

We use pop its made of a silicone that is designed to be safe to teethe on so we felt comfortable using it to make pop it treats.
