For all the occasions you may need to use a shot glass, there are just as many where you can use a chocolate shot glass! Chocolate shot glasses are easy to make, and fun to eat. There are all sorts of recipes and drinks both alcoholic and nonalcoholic that you can use them in.

Chocolate shot glasses are great for a variety of occasions. There are tons of ways to use them, and they are always great as cute little snacks or even as treat holders. 

Even if you've never made chocolate before, I assure you that this is an incredibly easy way to make chocolate.  You just need a special mold, which we will get to in a bit.

These fun little cups are so easy to make, and even more delicious. Following is everything that you will need to get started making your own delicious chocolate shot glasses.

How to Make Chocolate Shot Glasses

Choosing The Perfect Chocolate

For your chocolate shot glasses to be perfect, you are going to need a perfect chocolate. There are many types of high quality chocolate out there, including some great products you can find over at Etsy!

Hershey's chocolate will also work.  It will have a softer consistency, so be sure to keep them in the fridge until you're ready to serve.

Chocolate Shot Glass Mold

There are a few different ways to make chocolate shot glasses, but this is very easy thanks to the mold.  I used the Wilton shot glass mold.

You can use it with ice, chocolate, and even soaps or wax to make different things.

Chocolate Melter

In order to pour the chocolate into the mold, you are going to need a chocolate melter. I recommend a Wilton brand chocolate melter for their superior quality. 

I use a Wilson chocolate melter for all kinds of recipes at home.  This one melts easier, and it's more reliable and hands off compared to using a double boiler.

The pot holds up to two and a half cups of chocolate, which can be melted in less than 10 minutes. It is also incredibly easy to clean after use. Just wait until the candy hardens and pop it out of the silicone for an easy clean.

The pot is also great for dipping as it has both a melt and warm setting. Additionally, it is very safe with rubber feet and a base that stays cool to the touch, which is perfect if you have little ones running around!

Not only is it great at melting chocolate, but it can melt all sorts of candies for any recipe or occasion.

I've burnt chocolate by  melting it in the microwave, so I don't recommend it.  Others use it often with success.

Before I got the melter, I used a double boiler.  You can also make your own double boiler easily.  Just place a mason jar or glass bowl inside a pan of water.  

Make sure the glass isn't touching the bottom of the pan.  If it is, put a mason jar ring under it to lift it.  You want indirect heat from the warm water and not direct heat from the pan.

You can also use an Instant Pot as a double boiler to melt chocolate.

Today, we are going to be making hot chocolate in our chocolate shot glasses.  Simply omit the hot chocolate if you want to just make the glasses.

Below, I'll give you other recipes that you can use for these chocolate shot glasses.
