Chocolate Prank!




About: I'm a mom of 4 and I love to craft! Anything and Everything interests me and i love to create in the process of learning.

During weddings here, some of the groom's relatives would go to the bride's house the day before the wedding bearing gifts for the bride. Then again immediately after the wedding too the groom's relatives visit the bride's house. During this time usually simple and harmless pranks are played by the bride's side to the groom's visitors. The fun part is..the groom's side if caught in the prank would pretend not to be caught!
Some of the pranks have been so far to coat the edges of the drink glasses with chilli, or give a good dose of salt or chilli to beverages :-)
Well, this time I thought, how about paper chocolates?? Imagine them trying to gulp down paper! haha perhaps they would keep it in their mouth and slip it into their pockets?? What fun to observe ;-D

Step 1: ​Colors of Chocolate

Basically you need paper the colors of chocolate and all the essentials in crafting!

White chocolate color paper

Milk chocolate color paper

Dark chocolate color paper.

Paper shredder

Box cutter


Thin wire


quilling tool - optional. You can use a pin or tooth pick

For basic shapes please check this instructable

Now let's see how we are going to decorate are chocolates :-)

Step 2: ​Chocolate Sprinkles

To decorate cake, chocolate we use chocolate sprinkles, so how do we make paper sprinkles??

Using your box cutter cut your paper into 1mm thin strips.

Then using a thin wire begin by folding the top into a 45 degree angle and then twist your wire. For some it might take a bit of practice, but keep at it. You will get the hang of it soon.

Once you have formed the spiral in the wire, slip it off and if necessary twist by hand.

Make plenty of these spirals.

Then holding these spirals together snip away sprinkles with your scissor!

These looked so real that I had to get up and go have a chocolate.


Step 3: ​Chocolate Curls

To make Chocolate Curls, Twist a strip of 1mm or 0.5mm (it's hard to cut 0.5 so just go as thin as possible) paper in a Quilling tool. Make 3-4 turns and cut off.

You could also just hold a bunch of strips together, cut off every 1/2" and then twist the strip with a pin. I found this method much quicker and easier.

Step 4: Milk ​Chocolate

Now for our first chocolate.

Cut a strip of milk chocolate paper about 30" long and 15mm wide. Roll it up and let it loose forming a loose circle. Now Glue.

Press and form the shape of a rectangle.

cover the shape with glue and cover it with chocolate sprinkles. You could leave it like this or you could also decorate it with a strip of dark chocolate spiral paper.

To decorate with dark chocolate spiral. Twist a 0.5mm strip to form a spiral. Dab glue at one end and glue under the chocolate. Now wrap up about 3 times like picture and glue it down. you could also strategically dab glue in the necessary places so that it will not move.

Want to eat it?? Me too!

Step 5: White Curl Chocolate

Cut white chocolate color paper in to a strip of 30" long 6mm wide.

Roll it up , glue and form a square shape.

Cover with glue and sprinkle ' White chocolate curls'.

Decorate as picture with Dark Chocolate spiral paper.

I soooooo want chocolate!!!

Step 6: Dark Chocolate Delight

For the dome shape use normal quilling strip width which is 1/8". Take a strip about 36" . Roll up to a tight circle. The size should be approximately 2.5 c.m. in diameter. Make 2. Dome one and keep other flat. Glue the dome to the flat tight circle.

To make the oval shape. Cut a strip of paper 6mm wide and 30" long. Roll up and form a loose circle and glue it down.

Now cover both shapes with glue and decorate with dark chocolate sprinkles.

For the dome I used milk chocolate spiral. Glue the tip of the spiral to the top and gradually form the shape of a spiral. Glue in place.

I decorated the oval in White chocolate strip.

Doesn't these look real?

Step 7: Milky White Dome

Using shredded paper or quilling strip of white chocolate make 2 tight circles to measure approximately 2.5 cm in diameter.

Add a milk chocolate strip to one circle. Dome the other circle and glue on top. Now apply dots of glue all over the white dome and milk chocolate. Pour your chocolate sprinkles on top.


Isn't it just adorable??

Step 8: Prank Time

Now for the prank. Make assorted chocolates. Then mix them up with real chocolates. If the real chocolates don't look so pretty add some real chocolate sprinkles to them!

Now serve it up and observe with delight!

Thanks for taking the time to read. I would love to hear your feed back and if you tricked someone, LET ME KNOW HOW IT WENT! haha.

    Would the glue be okay to chew and be swallowed with the person's saliva (after they take out the chocolates)?

    Well...I have a very bad habit...sometimes when I'm concentrating on something and I have some paper in my hand ...I tend to eat it....I's a very bad habit. Well those papers sometimes might have glue. Once it mixes with saliva obviously the taste is you would spit it out. So far I'm alive. So I guess it's OK.

    Gosh! can't believe I'm telling this is public!!!

    I am not familiar with this custom. It sounds like fun. In perusing your instructions I could not find any information on ethnicity of the tradition. Would you mind sharing that info?

    This link is an over view of the weddings in general. It's also what outsiders see. Kind of formal kind of boring. What happens in between is the fun part. I shall inbox you later with the details :-) I don't think everyone would want to know about it over here!

    These are so pretty! How about covering them with a clear glue spray that dries hard to give some shine and the right feel? Voted! (Where can I get a filled chocolate? . . . )

    Thanks loads for the vote :-). Clear glue spray is a good idea. I didn't use it as I didn't have it!

    What dobyou mean chocolate filled chocolate? You mean chocolates like this false ones? They sell them in boxes. If not you can buy the plain ones and grate some cooking chocolate and sprinkle on top!
