Who says you can’t play with your food? These chocolate dominos were made to be played with – and then gobbled up! Use your favorite chocolate bars and add sprinkles for the dots as a pop of color. We love how the white chocolate looks here, but dark or milk chocolate would be just as fun and tasty!
These sweet dominos make a great last-minute treat that kids and adults can play with before they eat them. They may not be quite even enough to stand up in a winding row, but a traditional game of dominos is definitely on the menu! See our tips and tricks below.
what you need:
- White chocolate bars
- Round sprinkles (any color other than white)
- Small bowl
- Cutting board
Unwrap your chocolate bars and examine the layout of the squares. This will vary quite a bit from brand to brand, but the goal is to get rectangles that are as domino-like in size as possible. We used Lindt chocolate and they were almost perfectly sized! Shop around and see what looks best before buying too many bars.
Use a sharp kitchen knife to cut the bar into the dominos. Do this carefully on the cutting board, trying not to break any of the bar. Inevitably some will crack in directions that aren’t ideal, so you’ll want to account for this when buying chocolate bars. Snack on the broken pieces, but also but them into smaller pieces (about the size of a chocolate chip or slightly larger) and put into a small glass bowl. We’ll use these in the next step!
With the microwave on medium power, microwave the white chocolate scraps in 30-second increments, stirring in between, until melted and smooth.
Pour the round sprinkles into a small bowl, or the lid of the sprinkle jar, for easy access. Carefully hold one sprinkle between your finger and thumb and just barely dip into the melted white chocolate. Place onto the chocolate domino, forming whatever number of dots you like. It helps to look at a domino set (real or online) for reference while doing this. If you want to play a proper game, you’ll want to make 28 tiles, but if these are more for decoration you can make as many as you like.
Repeat this process until all the dominos are made. The melted chocolate doesn’t take long to harden, so they’re ready to play with (or eat!) almost immediately.
