Painting With Chocolate

Jun10

by

We are painting with chocolate to celebrate National Candy Month! What a yummy month!

Butterfly Pencil Pop Supplies

Chocolate candy mold with reservoir for pencil pop, plastic pencil pops, candy coating discs, ziploc freezer bags and or plastic squeeze bottles, inexpensive paint brushes and pencils. All these supplies can be found in a cake and candy supply store.

Melt a couple of candy discs in the microwave. Melt at 30 second intervals until just melted. Paint the indentations on the chocolate mold.

Place a plastic pencil pop in the reservoir.

Melt more candy coating in the microwave (each butterfly took about 15 discs) in a microwave safe bowl. Place melted candy in a ziploc bag. The candy coating can also be placed in a plastic bottle and heated in hot water (not boiling) and kept warm on the stove. Be careful to not let any water get into the candy coating, as it will make it curdle.

Snip of the lower corner of the ziploc bag and fill the chocolate molds. Tap the mold to release any air bubbles and to help the candy settle into the mold.

Allow candy to completely harden. You can place the mold into the freezer for a few minutes to speed up the process.

When hard, the candy will slip right out of the mold. Place pencils into the plastic and you have a beautiful and yummy treat!

    I saw this and was immediately reminded of my mom’s plans to finger-paint with chocolate pudding with my daughter when she’s a bit bigger….
