Picture of Chocolate molds with household items
My girlfriend likes dinosaurs, and everybody loves chocolate... so why not combine both and make a nice gift for her!
It was christmas eve and I couldn't decide what to give her, when suddenly it hit me: chocolate dinosaurs, but I needed special items for it's manufacture. This is how I came up with this. Note that there are better ways for doing this, but if you are in a hurry and you can't go and buy silicone putty or stuff like that, this instructable could save you.

Yoy will need:
-Silicone gun
-Childrens modeling clay
-Regular food oil
-Plain chocolate, not filled or anything.
-Metal pan for the melting

Step 1: Choose your chocolate shape

She always draws this guy, and I thought it would look nice made out of chocolate.

Great idea, but I would advise caution with those things. The glue sticks are not silicone and I'm not sure if they're food safe. You might want to check here:

In that article, they explain that the hot melt adhesive is made from on base material with several additives. Somewhere in the same article, it also says that "Non-toxicity of both the base materials and additives and absence of odors is important for food packaging". That sounds good to me. I haven't made more research on the subject. If someone has something to say about this, please DO.

As for my experience, the dinosaurs turned out perfect (short term speaking).
