Have you Tried Them?

Where are my cinnamon bear lovers out there? If you love cinnamon bears, have you tried chocolate dipped ones?! And if you haven’t tried either, may I suggest you do. They are delish.

Bite-sized Chocolate Covered Cinnamon Bears are an irresistible candy that combines the contrasting flavors of spicy cinnamon and sweet milk chocolate.

Cinnamon and melt-in-your-mouth milk chocolate make a truly addictive delight. These make great gifts for neighbors and friends, or a sweet snack. They are so easy to make and the Ghirardelli melting chocolate sends this sweet treat to a whole new level of yum!

How to make Chocolate Cinnamon Bears

PREP. Line baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

MELT. In a sauce pan over LOW heat melt the candy coating making sure to stir constantly. Remove from heat.

DIP. Grab cinnamon bear by the end and dip in the chocolate until it comes to the neck. Tap on side of pot to remove any excess chocolate.

SET. Place the chocolate covered cinnamon bear on a piece of parchment paper and let set.

COOL & STORE. Allow them to cool and dry completely. Store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.

Melting Tips + Tricks

Chocolate Foot: A chocolate foot is created when excess coating pools around the base of the treat. To help prevent this allow excess coating to drip off before placing on the parchment paper to set. If you do notice chocolate beginning to pool, use a toothpick to “cut” the pool away from the treat. If a foot has set, simply break/trim it off. 

Avoid chocolate foot altogether and use a toothpick: Using a toothpick is also helpful when you want to coat the entire bear. Poke each bear with a toothpick. Prepare a floral foam block by covering it with aluminum foil. After you have dipped the bear, insert the toothpick into the foam block for the bears to dry. 

Melting: Another way to melt the candy is in the microwave. Heat for 30 seconds and then stir. Repeat until the candy coating is melted and smooth. Reheat if it begins to cool and harden. 

You can also use a double boiler to melt the chocolate. A benefit to the double broiler is that the chocolate doesn’t burn and once the chocolate is hot it stays melted. If you don’t have a double boiler you can easily make your own. Simply fill the bottom of a pot with 2-3 inches of water. Bring the water to a boil, then turn down the heat. Place a glass or metal bowl on top of the pot. Add the wafers to the bowl and let it melt.

Gift ideas: These chocolate cinnamon bears are so easy and inexpensive to make. These reasons and the fact that they’re delicious mean they make great holiday gifts to give to coworkers, teachers, neighbors and friends. Some cute ideas on how to gift wrap them include: 

  • Mason jar tied with raffia or ribbon

  • Small brown paper bag. Fold over top and tie with ribbon
  • Use decorative card stock to make a paper candy box
