How to Make Miniature Chocolate Bibles

Have you ever seen those cute little Bibles made from chocolate nuggets? I made these mini-bibles with Hershey® nuggets and everyone loved them! Here’s my full tutorial on how to make miniature chocolate Bibles, and the Hershey® nugget Bible template to go with it.

Last May, our son made his First Holy Communion. After two years of academic preparation and dedication, we were happy to celebrate with him this very important milestone in his life.

We hosted a private luncheon with our closest friends and, as always, I like to add a touch of decor and glam to my events, even if it’s in a restaurant like this time. Enter, these miniature chocolate bibles.

I searched high and low for First Communion favors ideas, and -ironically- Pinterest kept suggesting my very own DIY Baptism Favors, along with a wide arrangement of Holy Water favors, and these cute miniature chocolate bibles made with Hershey’s® nuggets.

I placed the chocolate bibles on a silver tray to add some decor to the small table with the cake. These chocolate mini bibles were just an extra takeaway for the guests, along with the Holy Water Favors.

Now for the miniature chocolate bibles tutorial.

Tools and Materials to Make Chocolate Bibles

The first thing you will need is the miniature chocolate Bible scripture.

I chose one of my favorite Bible verses, from Matthew 19:14, which I think is very fitting for a child’s First Holy Communion. It is definitely fitting for a baby’s Baptism, too!

Jesus said: ” Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of Heaven belongs to such as these”.”

— Matthew 19:14

If you like this Bible verse, you can find it here. If you would like a different scripture, you can request a custom file here.

To make these miniature chocolate bibles, you have a few kinds of nuggets to pick from:

You will also need:

1. Print and Cut the Scripture

You can purchase a custom file from my shop, and print the scripture in white sticker paper or white copy paper.

If you decide to print on sticker paper, just take the paper trimmer and cut each card along the lines.

If you decide to print on copy paper, trim the scripture into three columns, as shown in the picture below.

Insert each column separately inside the sticker maker. This crafting tool will make the back of your plain copy paper sticky.

After making each column of scriptures sticky, you can cut each miniature card along the lines. Set all your cards aside.

2. Glue Hershey Nuggets

Warm up the hot glue gun and add a thin line of glue to only one of the nuggets. Then, attach the nuggets together, caring to only attach them at the very bottom of the sides, in a straight line. If you tilt them just a bit, you won’t have a flat bottom.

Hold the nuggets together for a few seconds until the hot glue dries completely. Lay them on a flat surface. There will be a small gap between them, and that’s OK, that’s where the ribbon will go.

3. Stick the Scripture to the Nuggets

Whether you decide to print on sticker paper or choose to create your own sticky backing as shown in step 2, now you can stick the card to the top of the chocolate nuggets.

Start sticking the paper from left to right. To do this, align the paper with the bottom edge of the nugget on the left.

Continue sticking the paper around the nuggets following the shape of the surface.

Follow the path towards the center indentation, where the two nuggets meet. Avoid putting too much pressure in the indentation, or the paper can rip. The wrapped nuggets should look like this. A beautiful, open, miniature Bible!

4. Add the Ribbon

Turn book (nuggets) upside down and add a thin line of glue in the middle, just halfway. Follow the instructions below using the picture’s frames as a guide.

  • Top left picture: attach one end of the ribbon in the back.
  • Top right picture: add another thin line of hot glue down the middle of the Bible
  • Bottom left picture: drape the ribbon over the middle and attach it
  • Bottom right picture: cut the end of the ribbon in a diagonal

Looking gorgeous!

5. Add the Cover of the Bible

Turn the mini chocolate bible around once again, and add enough dabs of hot glue in the back of the nuggets.
