I think you might be able to find some recipes and tips just by Googling things like "molded chocolate" and "homemade chocolate candy."  Good luck — sounds like a really cute, special idea!

We used to make molded chocolates at school as parent gifts for Christmas when I was a kid and I also made some for Christmas presents one year several years ago without any recipe and they turned out great.

At Walmart in the cake decorating aisle of the craft section, they have candy melts and they come in pink and other colors. If there is a cake decorating supply store in your area (look it up in the Yellow Pages under ‘cake decorating’), you can get the same candy melts in a larger quantity. All you do is melt them in the microwave in a glass dish or a double boiler on the stove and pour them into the molds. Let them set in the fridge a couple hours at least and then pop them out. Fill your molds with more chocolate and repeat the cycle till you’re done. Store them in a cool dark area so they don’t melt. Don’t put them in the freezer unless you want them to bloom (which is what the whitish tint on frozen milk chocolate is) and alter the taste. 

Since the candy melts, the colored ones anyway, are vanilla flavored, you can add other flavorings if you want. Wilton may have flavorings. But the cake decorating stores have various flavors that you can add a couple drops to each batch and mix it in.

I think purchasing candy melts would be the easiest option.  You can also find them at Michaels or Hobby Lobby and they are available on amazon:

Although I’m not sure about ordering chocolate online.  It looks like they are available in a number of colors if there was a specific ribbon color you were looking for.  As it turns out, we are adding a donation to our favors too and I think we are going to say something along the same lines.
