This post contains a recipe on how to make pink chocolate-dipped wafers!
If you want an easy Valentine’s dessert, you have come to the right place.
Let me tell you about Pink Chocolate-Dipped Wafers.
I recently introduced my kiddos to strawberry wafers and vanilla wafers and now that’s all they want for dessert. Yes, I forgot to get the chocolate kind (sorry, Luna).
Rosie gravitated towards the strawberry wafers and Luna, the vanilla ones. So, when I asked them to help me make some chocolate-covered wafers they were so excited.
Doubly excited when I told them sprinkles were involved.
WHY MAKE PINK CHOCOLATE-DIPPED WAFERS?
I had to make the chocolate pink because these are for Valentine’s Day.
Also, you can never go wrong with a chocolate-dipped recipe. Maybe it’s just me but I think every dessert recipe needs to contain some sort of chocolate.
Lastly, I chose to use wafers because the little crunch when you bite into them is oh-so-satisfying. Does anyone else like to peel the layers apart and eat them?
WHAT YOU NEED IN ORDER TO MAKE THEM
To make these pink chocolate-dipped wafers you’ll need a tray covered with wax paper (melted chocolate can get messy).
You’ll also need a medium-sized bowl to melt the chocolates in and a spoon to help cover the wafers in chocolate.
Told you it was easy.
WHAT INGREDIENTS YOU WILL NEED
The recipe only contains three ingredients
- Wafer flavors of your choice
- Pink Chocolate Melts
The wafers come in so many flavors… I’m talking vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, banana, chocolate raspberry, orange cream, gingerbread, salted caramel, key lime, mint, you name it, they probably have it.

I chose vanilla and strawberry because white and pink are my two favorite colors and are perfect for Valentine’s Day.
HOW TO MAKE PINK CHOCOLATE-DIPPED WAFERS
First, melt the pink chocolate in a bowl according to directions.
Typically, I do it for 60 seconds at a 50% power level.
I’ll then take it out and stir it as much as I can. Then stick it back in the microwave for 10-20 seconds, take out and stir, then repeat until it’s all melted.
Dip the wafers into the pink chocolate.
I took the spoon and scooped extra pink chocolate onto the wafer to ensure I wasn’t missing any edges or cracks.
Make sure to tap the wafer on the side of the bowl to wipe off any excess chocolate. Do this gently as the wafers can be a bit fragile and flake of a bit.
Transfer the chocolate-dipped wafer to the wax-covered tray and add the sprinkles of your choice.
Let it cool down so the chocolate hardens completely. If you’re impatient like me, stick the tray in the fridge for a few minutes to speed the process up.
GET YOUR KIDS INVOLVED!
Take a muffin pan and add different sprinkles in all the separate areas.
Since my kids are 2 and 4, I dipped the wafers into the chocolate and let them sprinkle them.
Then, after the wafers cool down, let them eat as many as they want.
Just kidding… I only let them have four.
BIG BROWNIE POINTS FOR THIS MOM RIGHT HERE!
I saved the rest in a tupperware at room temperature for them to eat over the next few days.
And I may have had 1 or 2 for myself.
Overall, this recipe took us about 15 minutes from start to finish.
As a mom of two little girls, this was one of the best recipes I could do with them.
It was short, full of chocolate and sprinkles, and it tastes delicious.
I would love to hear if you try this with your kids!
