Here is step by step on how to make chocolate butterflies.  I used them to decorate a birthday cake.

You will need the following items:

-Chocolate (2 different colors) - You can use chunk chocolate or the disks
-Wax Paper
-An outline of a butterfly - I hand drew this on a piece of paper
-Zipping bags
-A cookie sheet

Step 1: Prep for the construction

If using chucks of chocolate then chop the chocolate into the melt-able pieces.

Then put small pieces/disks into the zipping baggy (freezer bags worked the best).

Put them in the microwave.  Heat for 10 seconds at a time until melted.

Note: Do not add coloring to chocolate. There is a chemical reaction and it lumps up the chocolate. Buy the already colored chocolate.
What do you do if you need to add more chocolate to the bag or if the chocolate starts to harden in the bag? I would love to try this out.
<p>Have a hot cup of water handy I suppose?</p>
