Easy Fancy Schmancy Chocolates.

I think I bought these chocolate molds about 10 years ago when I was visiting friends in Kansas City. And I haven’t used them until today. These are like miniature Jell-O molds.  Melt white chocolate, add to a piping bag (or ziplock with the corner snipped off). Pipe candy molds halfway. Refrigerate or let set. Fill the rest of the molds with regular chocolate. Set and release from the molds. (Before you set each layer, tap the molds against the counter to release any bubbles and smooth the top.)

Neon Green – Chocolate Shard

To make the shard (you can drop the bright neon icing if it’s too much to handle): Put a thin layer of cooking spray on wax paper. Melt chocolate and spread a thin layer on the wax paper. Scatter sprinkles on the chocolate. Refrigerate or allow the chocolate to set. Break the chocolate into pieces and press into your icing in visually interesting ways.

Easy Cupcake Couture

Food color your batter for effects. For the ornaments on top, melt chocolate and pipe scribbles on to wax paper. Once they set, position on top of the iced cupcakes. I purchased these intricate baking cups from a seller in Asia (check eBay and Amazon for similar styles).

Fortune Cookie

I decided to randomly open one fortune cookie, and I would use whatever it said. Luckily, it didn’t foreshadow anything terrible.

How to do these – Take fortune cookies and dip halfway into melted chocolate. (In this case, white chocolate colored blue.) Before the chocolate hardens, add sprinkles and allow to set.

Cupcake Pops

These are a bit more complicated than you’d think, and I really can’t recommend attempting them unless you’re experienced in working with chocolate. Or you have plenty of time to master the art. I would call these mini cupcake bon bons, there is no cake in here.

They are very rich tasting, and one delicious pop is probably plenty for most people. One package of Oreo cookies – put them through a food processor until they’re a black powder. In a bowl, hand mix in one package of cream cheese with the Oreo crumbs until you have a mass of dough (Playdough texture). You can halve this basic recipe with no problems. Press into a small cupcake mold (Check eBay or Amazon for “My Little Cupcake” molds.) Refrigerate until they’re firm. The bottom half of this is dipped in melted chocolate pieces by hand (candy melts, found anywhere there’s a Wilton section at places like Michaels, Hobby Lobby, Walmart, K-mart). The top half dipped in melted white chocolate. Start by dipping the bottom halves in melted chocolate. Dip the tip of your pop stick into melted chocolate to give it a little “glue,” then insert into the pop. Don’t go too far into the pop, otherwise the pop stick may push through the top and ruin your pop. After the chocolate has solidified, dip the top half of the pop into melted white chocolate (or any other color like blue/pink/yellow). Press an M&M on to the top. Then rotate the pop while adding sprinkles. You must add your sprinkles before the white chocolate solidifies, or they won’t attach. So have all of your supplies ready to go.

You will need something to support these pops while they solidify, and to serve them. You can either buy a pop stand in the Wilton section, or jam the pops into a block of styrofoam.

I recommend doing a run-through of just one cupcake pop before you do an entire batch. There are a lot of fussy parts to the process, and more supplies required than you would think. (Cupcake mold, sprinkles, M&Ms, pop sticks, two kinds of chocolate melts, sprinkles, Oreos, cream cheese)
The cool factor of doing these for your party might just make it worth the production.

Coconut M&M Chocolate Candies

I was walking through a candy aisle looking for something else and snapped this on the way by. Must be a new product, possibly modeled after the success of the coconut Oreo.
