What is it about chocolate games that get everyone in a frenzy of excitement? Simple answer......Chocolate is just so delicious!
These birthday party games are always popular but just make sure you have a lot of chocolate as the kids are known to sneak a few extra pieces :-)
If you've played some fun chocolate games, then I would love to hear about them. Many of the birthday party games on this website have been submitted by you visitors. Click here to submit your game idea.
What you need: Chocolate bars, ice cube trays, heat source, fridge, dice
How to play: Take a bar of chocolate, melt it and pour a small amount into individual ice cube trays.
In one of the trays add a nasty surprise (we used a cardamon seed to give a harmless but horrible flavor). Then place the ice cube trays into the fridge to cool and solidify.
Using a dice, the children take turns to throw a six.
Any child that throws a six then takes a chocolate to eat. They know that one of the chocolates is a trick so it is just waiting for the moment when luck runs out!

Guess How Many
What you need: M&M's, jar
How To Play: In advance, fill a big jar with M&M's (you could use Smarties or other sweets).
The kids have to guess how many M&M's are in the jar.
The person who guesses the nearest; gets to win the whole jar.
What You Need: Smarties or M&M's, paper plates, straws
How To Play: Give each child a straw and 2 plates (one empty and one with a set number of smarties on).
On the whistle, the kids have to suck up a smartie onto the end of their straw and drop it onto the empty plate.
They have to do this as fast as they can.
If they drop a smartie before it reaches the plate, then they must leave it where it is.
When the timer is up (say 2 minutes), count the number of smarties on each person's plate and subtract the number that got dropped, to give you a score.
The winner is the person with the highest score.
Willy Wonkas Golden Tickets
What You Need: Small chocolate bars with wrappers, golden tickets (use gold shiny paper and marker pens)
How To Play: In advance, make a couple of Willy Wonka golden tickets and insert one each into a couple of chocolate bars.
You will need to unwrap the bars carefully to do this.
Then hide the bars around the party area.
Get the kids all excited and tell them they are going on a chocolate hunt to find the golden tickets.
On the blow of a whistle, the kids all rush off to find the chocolate bars.
Whoever gets the golden tickets gets a special prize.
Top Tip: Depending on the size of the chocolate bars, I wouldn't hide too many as the kids might then have a chocolate overload.
