For some reason I am in the midst of an overwhelming urge to bake (I think it’s all the dieting…lol).
I’ve done the Wilton Cake decorating classes (and loved them) and I’ve done a cookie decorating class…and loved it even more.
I have 2 out of 3 kids with birthdays coming up PLUS Valentine’s Day so it’s time to really focus these creative juices.
I wanted to start with an easy project…and really these Valentine’s Day chocolate candy molds couldn’t have been any easier. I hope you love them as much as I do!
Valentine’s Day Chocolate Candy Molds
You just need:
1 pack of 2″ sandwich cookies (like Oreos or GS cookies)
2 sandwich sized baggies
1. Place 10 of the red Wilton candy melts in a baggie and put it in the microwave for 30 seconds. Take it out and smush it around. If they are completely melted, you’re good to go. If they aren’t yet melted, place them back in the microwave for 10 seconds at a time until they are.
2. Squeeze all of the red candy into one corner of the baggie. Cut off just the very tip of that corner so you can squeeze out just a small amount of chocolate.
3. Slowly outline the indented shape in the mold. Tap the mold on the counter to spread the chocolate around and get the air bubbles out. Put mold into freezer for 10 min.
4. While you wait, place about 30 of the white candy melts into a baggie and melt them the same way as before. Squeeze them into one corner of the baggies and cut off the tip.
5. Take the mold out of the freezer. Squeeze enough of the white candy into one of the molds to cover the bottom….just do 1 at a time.
6. Then push and a sandwich cookie into the mold. The easiest way is to put enough chocolate in initially that it comes up the sides of the cookie, but not over the edges. This will take a little practice.
7. Go through and do all of them, then put it back into the freezer for 10 min.
8. Take them out and they should pop right out.
That’s it! Super fast and easy! They are sooooo good you will have to struggle not to eat them all!
My kids are begging me to make some for their classes at school.
