Purchase a chocolate candy mould at your local craft store. Since moulds come in many varieties, choose something special with the men in your life in mind. For instance, if they enjoy football, you might choose a mould which makes football shaped candy.
Melt your melting chocolate according to the directions on the package. Most melting chocolates provide instructions on how to melt chocolate over the stove or in the microwave.
Prepare your mould by spraying it with non-stick cooking spray. Pour the melted chocolate in the mould and allow it to cool completely. Once it is cooled, remove it from the mould and place it in small bags that you can decorate for the men in your life.
Homemade Chocolate Candy
Purchase several small frozen pizza crusts, along with various pizza topping that you know he loves.
Assemble each pizza individually with pizza sauce and various toppings.
Place the small pizzas on a baking tray and put them in the freezer. Freeze them overnight and then wrap them individually in saran wrap or clear plastic bags. Label each one with the man's name and the type of pizza.
Choose a book to use that is at least 2 inches thick and that is hard cover. The book can be about something the man is interested in, such as gardening or cars, so that it doesn't look out of place on his bookshelf. In order to keep from destroying a book he might have wanted to read, make sure that the book is somewhat out of date.
Cut a 3 to 4 inch square or rectangle out of the centre of the middle pages of the book with a razor. The secret compartment should be at least one inch deep so that it could contain a ring, watch or key.
Wrap the book just as you would an ordinary present. Once he opens it, describe how the book can be used as a secret compartment. You could also place a note to the recipient in the secret compartment of the book.
