It's not surprising to me that my first post is about chocolate. I mean, I took one look at an ice cube mold and thought - nah let's make this about chocolate instead. So here we are! To be honest, I don't think a day goes by where I don't have at least a small piece of chocolate and I always love seeing quirky and creative ways it can be served. The mold I used also had a thumbs up and a rock on hand symbol but the peace sign was my favorite. So without further delay, here's to a sweet first post and many more to come! Welcome to my blog.
- Pink Wilton Candy Melts
- Bright White Wilton Candy Melts
- Store Bought Red and Black Tube Icing (I attached a Wilton #2 tip to pipe the thickness I needed for the nail polish and outline)
- This ice cube mold
1) Pour a mixture of bright white and pink candy melt discs in a bowl to create a soft peach color. (I referenced this chart to make the lightest color on the pink row but you can create any color you like.)
2) Melt the chocolates according to the directions on the bag and then remove from microwave and mix to achieve the desired color.
3) Pour the melted chocolate into the molds (I don't like to pour piping hot chocolate into molds so I let mine cool just a bit before doing so) then gently tap the mold on the table until all air pockets have been removed.
4) Place the mold in the refrigerator until the chocolates have set. Then remove the chocolates from the mold.
5) Using a Wilton #2 tip attachment, pipe the outline in black icing and the nail polish in red icing. Let it dry and you're all set to enjoy a real sweet peace of chocolate ;)
