Chocolate Pinata Recipe (Uncle Julio’s)

There is nothing more kids love than chocolate and making an edible pinata out of it is a great way to feed the kids. Chocolate Pinatas are an awesome dinner recipe to make with the kids. However, they take a while to make, so it’s best to do it on the weekend. The pinata can be decorated any way you would like. I would suggest keeping it simple because this dessert doesn’t contain any fancy decorations for showing off your decorating skills, it’s about the chocolate and treats inside!

What is Chocolate Pinata?

Uncle Julio’s Chocolate Pinata is a delicious chocolate treat that has been made for over 40 years. It is made with only the highest quality ingredients, including milk and cream from cows that are humanely raised on small farms in the U.S.A., sugar from sugar cane grown in Brazil, cocoa beans from Indonesia and Africa, and vanilla from Madagascar.

It comes in three different sizes: small (5 oz.), medium (7 oz.) and large (10 oz.). The small size is perfect for one person, while the medium will be enough for two people to share, or for one person to have all by themselves! The large size is ideal for sharing among three or four people.

Uncle Julio’s Chocolate Pinata is available in a variety of flavors: milk chocolate, dark chocolate and white chocolate.

What’s in a chocolate piñata?

  • A small box of chocolate pudding mix
  • 3 cups milk (or milk substitute)
  • 1 cup mini marshmallows
  • 2 cups chocolate chips
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter (optional)

How do you make chocolate pinatas?

  1. First, you need to make a mold of a pinata. You can do this by taking an old shoe box and cutting it in half. Then take the two halves and glue them together, making sure the seam is on the bottom. Once this is done, wrap it in aluminum foil until it is completely covered. Male sure to put all your candies and fruits before covering up.
  2. Next you need to fill the mold with chocolate and let it set up (about 15 minutes). You can also add sprinkles or other candy if desired (we chose coconut shavings for ours!).
  3. Once you have filled your pinata with chocolate, put it in the freezer for 30 minutes to help harden up any residual moisture from being microwaved earlier. This will also help prevent any cracking when you go to break open your pinata at party time!
  4. Once the pinata has hardened completely (this can take anywhere from 1-2 hours depending on how much chocolate was used), it’s time to break open your pinata and enjoy!
