In tribute to Saint Patrick I've made green chocolate shamrocks. Who doesn't love chocolate?

Today, St. Patrick's Day, I passed these out to my friends. Next year I'll have to make more because even though i made nearly three dozen, I ran out in less than fifteen minutes.

Step 1: Supplies

-Shamrock shaped things. I made mine out of some scrap wood.
-Plastic, milk jug sides work great
-Vacuum Former. Sheekgeek has a cheap and easy was to make one How to Make Your Own Prototypes: How to Make Your Own Plastic Vacuum Former
-Heat gun
-Wax Paper
-White Chocolate
-Green food coloring
-Double boiler
-Spoon(s) and Knives
How long did it take to make?
I'm Irish are you?
I've used "Food-grade" silicone before in order to make chocolate molds. Milk jugs are obviously made of food-grade plastic, but does melting them possibly make them harmful to use in food production afterwards? Plastics are sometimes tricky when used as food molds and I wouldn't want to find out in a few years that I had been making "cancer cookies" this whole time.
hmm, this is something to celebrate here in belgium. another tradition to follow!
Mmmmm.. I melted a bunch of white chocolate, and water got in it, so it was ruined, but I ate a 1/4 lb. block of white chocolate.
Sweet xP thx for the milk jug idea
no problem. i actually think it was on sheekgeek's instructable
you should add peppermint extract.
if you don't eat these on st. patrick's day, you get pinched by Unlucky the leprechaun. (Lucky's cousin twice removed.)
Yum. Those look good, now I'm hungry for a chocolate snack! Great job!
