Chocolate Candy in the Kitchen: Creative Ways to Enjoy Your Favorites from Wockenfuss

Wockenfuss Candies Chocolate Candy

Our chocolate by itself is a great indulgence but, adding it to other recipes is even better!

Popping a chocolate candy into your mouth is always enjoyable, and fans of Wockenfuss have countless chocolate specialties to choose from for a midday pick-me-up. There’s nothing wrong with indulging in chocolate candy as-is, but bringing candy into the kitchen with you is an exciting and unique way to let your creativity flow. Keep these recipe ideas in mind for the next time you get an order of toffee, chocolate pretzels, or other chocolate candy favorites from Wockenfuss!

Baking Cakes, Cookies, or Brownies? Add Chocolate Candy to the Mix!

One of the simplest ways to experiment with chocolate candy is to add it to your favorite recipes for cookies, cakes, and other baked goods. Chocolate covered nuts, chocolate pretzels, and toffee are ideal for cookies, and baking peanut butter cups or chocolate covered Oreos into your next batch of cupcakes is an easy way to add a sweet and surprising twist to a classic recipe. If you’re really looking to go the extra mile with your next chocolate cake or batch of brownies, incorporate melted dark or milk breakup chocolate.

Get Your Kids into the Kitchen

There are plenty of ways to include your littlest sous chefs in your culinary plans. Making your own chocolate bark or trail mix is a fun summertime activity for kids of all ages. Work with your little ones to create a custom mixture of nuts, dried fruits, and chocolate candy to keep you going on those summertime hikes, or spread the mixture on a bed of melted breakup chocolate to make your very own chocolate bark. Instead of going out for ice cream, make fully-loaded sundaes with ice cream and your favorite candies from Wockenfuss. Create a sundae bar with broken-up bits of chocolate pretzels, peanut butter cups, and more, letting everyone sprinkle or mix in their own toppings. You can also add chocolate candy to milkshakes! 

Dive into these Adults-Only Recipe Ideas

Chocolate candy isn’t just for kids; adults can get in on the fun, too! Plenty of frozen cocktails can benefit from the addition of gourmet candy, including grasshoppers and mudslides. Experiment with malted milk balls, chocolate covered espresso beans, and sea salt caramels. Not all adult beverages contain alcohol — try making a quick-and-dirty mocha by dropping a chocolate or two into your next latte!
