Delicious Eyes, Finger and Tomb of chocolate to gift on Halloween to your friends, family. Also you have fun with the little ones. We show you how to make these simple and scary candy ideas that they can also be part of a table at the Halloween party.
Step by step you have it in our video:
The materials for the chocolates are:
- White chocolate
- Dark chocolate or as dark as possible
- Dyes for food: red, green, blue and yellow
- 2 ping pong balls
- 3 plastic bags
- A glove (you should wash very well to remove the talcum that usually bring)
- A rectangular cake
- Small wooden sticks
- Strawberry sauce or syrup
The materials for the box:
- Cardboard 26cm x 21cm
- Colors or markers
- Kitchen or baking paper
To melt the chocolate you can do it in a bain-marie but it takes longer time (and it must be done by an adult). On the other hand, you can do it in the microwave in several short times to stir: first between 20 to 30 seconds (depending on the power of your microwave) and stir very well.
Return to heat 20 seconds and stir, if after mixing has a liquid consistency is because it is already in the perfect point. These recipes are great to make with children because in small quantities and using this way to melt the chocolate does not heat up much to get to burn… So, enjoy cooking and creating with the youngest of the house in this time of Halloween.
Next thing to keep in mind is that you should allow each layer of chocolate to cool in the fridge for 10 to 30 minutes depending on the thickness before adding another layer of another color. Great thing is that if you do not put it in the fridge it does not harden so quickly, so it allows you to work it out quietly. This is other point in advantage to make chocolate recipes with children.
Something that you should also take into account when working with chocolate is that wheter you use a normal liquid or gel dye (they are the easiest and cheapest to get in the grocery store) you should not apply a lot of quantity or melt the dyed chocolate again because it will become a clay and it will be impossible to work with it.
