I love trying out new techniques in the kitchen and I’ve always seen people make things out of solid chocolate and figured it can’t be that hard to do, so I found a site that kind of outlined the process. I did mine not so thick. The couple I made it for don’t eat a ton of sweets so I didn’t want them left with a lifetime supply of chocolate. You could also stuff it with cake through the opening as well.

First you need a knife to remove the label. Then take off the cap and ring around the bottle neck. Cut a rectangle in the back of the bottle. You will use this opening to fill the chocolate and cake if desired.

Next using a double boiler, I melted a bag of milk chocolate chips.

I added cling wrap between the bottle lid and the chocolate to keep it from sticking. Coat the inside of the bottle with chocolate. I then stuck it in the freezer to cool quickly then did another layer of chocolate. If you wanted a solid chocolate bottle fill the bottle with chocolate then allow to cool.

Next use the knife to peel off the bottle.

Wrap the bottle with the label and attached the bottle cap and ring.

Here’s how I made the cork candle holders. I used a smaller screwdriver and poked it a few times till the candle fit in just right.
