Courtney and I were at Michaels one day and she saw this candy mold and got all excited about it so we bought it and then when we got home I just put it away and we forgot all about it but then yesterday when I was in party mode I remembered it for some reason and decided to surprise her with some chocolate mustaches! They are so easy to make as are most molded chocolates. I had a bag of dark chocolate candy melts so you just melt those in the microwave at 30 second intervals, it doesn’t take long so watch carefully. Then, using a smaller size spoon, carefully spoon the chocolate into whatever mold you are using, being careful not to overfill. When the molds are almost full, tap the mold tray carefully on the counter several times to release any air bubbles and settle chocolate. Place a lollipop stick into the groove in the well of each mold and twist carefully until covered in chocolate so that the stick will set into the candy, then place in refrigerator until set, about 15 – 20 minutes. Remove from fridge and invert over paper towel, twisting mold gently to release candies which should just pop out. Repeat process until out of chocolate!
Here are Courtney and Jaren with their chocolate mustaches although Jaren ate half of his before I got the picture!
And here is the party treat tray ready to go! The “Happy Halloween” banner in the background is a Pinterest idea as were some of the treats too.
And, last but not least, here is my pumpkin, which is also another idea from Pinterest. I hate carving pumpkins, too messy and slimy so I opted to decorate instead and leave all the guts untouched! 🙂
