I'll Take You To The Candy Shop

Are you wearing a bib? Prepare to drool. You were warned!
















Drooling yet? Thought so! Just like Mr. Wonka, what we've got ourselves here is a scrum-diddly-umptious candy.  

But how does (s)he do it?! Mr. Wonka was a little secretive about his recipes... but I'm not!


What You Need:
I made these chocolate beauties using... 
  • melted chocolate, 
  • melted white chocolate, 
  • peppermint candies, 
  • and a rose mold (not the one seen in the picture - but found at Hobby Lobby).


What You Need To Do:
  • Melt the chocolate (regular or white - really just depends on your personal preference) in 30 second intervals. Use a thin, microwaveable bowl (that means not your thick, ceramic bowl - it will scorch the chocolate and that's just no fun). 
  • Once the chocolate looks semi-melted, take it out and start stirring. Melted chocolate doesn't always change shape once it gets soft, so if you don't do this, you'll overheat them because they don't look melted.
  • If you're adding peppermint (or granola? graham cracker? get creative!), dump it in the bowl and fold/stir it in.
  • Spoon into molds.
  • Freeze for 5 minutes.
  • Take the mold out, flip it upside down and pop out your candy (just like an ice tray)!

Yes, you may call me Willy Wonka.
