Family game night is one of my family's favorite ways to spend time together. Over the years, we have collected all kinds of board and card games. Qwirkle is one game that not a lot of people have heard of, but is one that the whole family will love playing together time and time again. Since it is one of our favorites, we decided to have a Qwirkle-themed family game night complete with some easy-to-make Qwirkle Chocolates for us to eat (and play with)!

Qwirkle is simple game of matching colors and shapes that requires tactical maneuvers, quick-thinking and a well-planned strategy for 2-4 players. It combines the game play of Dominoes and Scrabble that teaches colors, shapes, math and the importance of strategizing. It is the perfect combination of skill and chance for both children and adults.

Players score points by building rows and columns of brightly-colored tiles that are either all the same color or all the same shape without creating duplicates. Score big by placing a tile that touches multiple pieces with matching attributes. Create a line of all six in a row, and you score a "Qwirkle"! The player with the most points when the tiles run out wins!

Making chocolates is a simple and quick treat you can make for a family game night. Start with a silicone mold with 2" squares. You can get these online (Amazon, Etsy, etc) or at stores that carry silicone molds. Mine is an ice cube tray!

Melt a package of chocolate wafers down in the microwave for 1 minute, and in 30 second increments until the wafers are completely melted. Stir well and add a small amount of chocolate into each of the molds. Tilt the mold a little in each direction so that the chocolate coats all four sides. Tap the mold on the counter a few times to distribute the chocolate evenly and release air bubbles.

Add any kind of filling you want into the molds - I have added crushed peanuts, mini M&Ms, caramel, and crushed Oreos. Scoop the remaining melted chocolate into the molds over the filling and tap on the counter again to settle the chocolate. Place in the freezer or refrigerator until the chocolates have set.

To turn these average chocolates into "Qwirkle Chocolates", we've got to add the colorful shapes to the top to resemble the Qwirkle tiles! Melt down a few red, green, blue, purple, yellow, and orange wafers (one at a time). Spoon the melted wafer into a plastic bag and cut a tiny bit of the corner off. Set aside tiles with the six shapes on it next to your work space for reference. Carefully pipe the shapes onto the top of the chocolates. Repeat with all six colors.

Keep the chocolates refrigerated until you are ready for game night. Set up Qwirkle, and play the night away with your family as you enjoy a sweet, chocolatey Qwirkle-inspired treat!
