I stumbled apon the art of paper crafting last year & have been hooked ever since . It is an amazingly fun hobby & there are thousands of free templates to choose from online. Seeing how food is my FAVORITE art medium, I decided to experiment to see if I could make the same adorable characters out of something edible.Who doesn't love making masterpieces that can also be eaten?The end result was this little guy. He is a delicious, chocolate, snack, to be eaten sometime after midnight! This instructable will show you how to make your own chocolate mogwai, or any creature, monster, or classic character your little heart desires, using just a paper craft template & a few basic supplies.
Step 1: STEP 1: Find a Template
First choose a favorite character that you would like to bring to life. You can either create your own or find a free one online by searching "paper craft" plus your character's name & browsing the images. I chose to do Gizmo and found the template here
. You want to find one that is realitively simple in design (lots of larger pieces & simple square shapes). Then print the template out to use as your chocolate building pattern.
Step 2: STEP 2: Gather Supplies
Next you will need to gather together only a few basic items:
*your printed template
*colored chocolates or food coloring for the colors needed on your template
*a cookie sheet to use as a work surface (one that can easily fit in the frig or freezer if needed)
*some wax paper
*a sharp knife
*some quart size ziplock bags
Optional: candies for eyes or decorating
Prepare your work surface by placing your template onto the cookie sheet & covering it with a piece of wax paper. Now you are ready to begin!
