Chocolate lollipops are a great do-it-yourself dessert for children and adults alike. They can be stuck in the top of a cake, into individual cupcakes or made as a stand-alone treat. Chocolate lollipops are simply melted chocolate poured into a mould and then loosened when cooled. There are two basic ways to decorate a chocolate lollipop: By painting it with frosting "paint" or by coating it with a topping such as crushed nuts. In addition, you can enhance your decoration by adding decorations to the stick of the lollipop.

Things you need
- Thin tubes of frosting (the kind that make a thin line)
- Crushed nuts of your choice
- Crushed M&Ms
- Paper and tape
Cover your lollipop in a candy coating. While it is still warm, roll it in coconut, crushed nuts, crushed M&Ms or a combination of these items. This will make your lollipop taste even better and give it an interesting look.
Paint your lollipop with frosting. Use a thin tube of frosting. For round lollipops, create happy faces, balls or flowers. For tall, skinny lollipops, make trees or even write names or sayings on them. Obviously, you should only do this if you have chosen not to coat your lollipop as mentioned in Step 1.
Lay the lollipops on waxed paper to dry. Sticking them in styrofoam or floral foam to dry works even better.
Decorate the stick of your lollipop. If you've made faces out of frosting on the lollipops, consider creating shirts and trousers out of paper and taping them to the sticks. Alternately, poke the stick through a frilly paper cupcake liner. This has the added benefit of "catching" any parts of the candy that may fall or drip off the stick.
Wrap them in cellophane if you are going to hand them out individually. Secure the cellophane onto the lollipop by tying a big bow around the cellophane at the neck of the lollipop. Another idea is to stick the lollipops into the top of a cake and let the children or guests pluck them out.
