Molding Halloween Chocolates with Kids

halloween ChocolateMy daughter and I LOVE molding Halloween Chocolate. Making your own Chocolate candy is easy… and if you use Candy Melts…. it’s even easier (they are quite forgiving). Just pop them into the microwave on low, stir, and it’s good to go. Halloween Chocolate Molds come in loads of shapes, witches, pumpkins, skeletons, fingers, and ghosts.

Kids and grown ups love how fun it is. My daughter really likes the gross-out factor, loves licking the bowl, and REALLY loves eating the finished product (so do I).

Molding Halloween Chocolate Candy

Use Halloween Chocolate Candy Molds to make Halloween treats for your next Halloween Party, or for Trick-or-Treat give-aways for kids you know…. or, when you want to get into the kitchen with a 9 year old.

So go, get the Kids into the kitchen! Using Chocolate Molds is easy and fun… so it’s a GREAT activity to do with kids. All ages can get involved (ok, I know, realistically you can’t let your 1 year old pour melted chocolate into a mold…but maybe paint?)

How We Made the Chocolate Witch Fingers-

It’s a simple trick…. All you need is the Finger Mold, some Chocolate Candy Melts, a few White Chocolate Candy Melts, and a bit of Green Candy Food Color.

(You can buy green chocolate melts…. I’m never sure how much I need, so I tend to get white and color it)

Mold Makes 8 at a Time

Prep Time: 5 Minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

Witch Finger Mold

Chocolate Candy Melts

Few White Chocolate Melts

Green Chocolate food Food Color

(or, get the Green Chocolate melts)

Paint Brush

Instructions

Prepare the Chocolate mold… make sure it’s clean and dry.

Melt the Chocolate… I used a Pyrex Measuring Cup in the Microwave

Spoon the chocolate into the molds… smooth to level.

Stick in the refrigerator for 10 minutes

Remove… make sure the chocolate feels hard…. Flip over and sort of carefully pop them out.

(if one breaks, you can glue it with melted chocolate.)

Melt the white chocolate melts, add some green food color and mix.

Paint the fingernails.

Let sit

Eat!

Buy Chocolate Melts

These chocolate melts are easier to use than regular chocolate or chocolate chips.

Colored Chocolate

We make “Chocolate Paint” by melting white chocolate melts, and adding food paste coloring and a little bit of shortening (the shortening prevents the chocolate from seizing… that is, stiffening up…. when water or food color get added in). Stir and you have colored chocolate, smooth enough for painting witch finger nails… or ghost eye balls.
