Skull Candy

Beaulah and I have been having fun popping out
Halloween chocolates with a skull and pirate theme.

Beaulah has been helping to get the house all
haunted for the little ones.  They are so excited and
want to help decorate too.

Our friends Kathy and Gary gave us this fun mold
that has a pirate theme.  It is a silicone mold that
can be used for chocolate, ice, etc., and has seven 
different molds.

These chocolate treats couldn't be easier - 
just fill the molds with tempered chocolate,
or melted candy melts.  Use a toothpick to poke
out any bubbles, and jiggle the mold a few times
to help remove any remaining bubbles.  Pop in
the fridge or freezer a few minutes until the 
chocolate hardens.  

The silicone makes it really
easy to remove the chocolate, even the delicate
pieces on the wheel.  

Of course Beaulah and I had to glam it up a bit
with some gold dust and some googly eyes.
Use a little clear vanilla to paint on the gold dust,
and you have fun chocolates to enjoy or to give away.

This candy dish is my grandchildren's
favorite - he is animated and sings to them.

Have a little fun this Halloween and pop out
some chocolate candy!

I will be sharing these goodies with


Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.
