About 6 oz of white chocolate wafers
About 6 oz of red candy melts
1/4 cups of peanut butter
1/4 cup and
1 TBSP of Powdered Sugar (Confectioner's)
1/2 TBSP of melted butter
1/4 Tsp of salt 1 tube of Black Icing
Baymax visor template (I made mine in photoshop, or you can freehand the visor)
sandwich bag or candy bag
Step 1: Make Peanut Butter Inside
First we want to make our peanut butter inside. Combine the peanut butter, salt, butter, and powdered sugar in a bowl, and stir it all together, if it is still super sticky to the touch, add about another tablespoon of powdered sugar.
Step 2: Melt White Chocolate
Now let's melt our white chocolate wafers. I am going to melt them in the microwave. I will start with 30 seconds on HI and then stir, and then about 20 seconds stir, and then 10 seconds.
Step 3: Pour Chocolate Into Paper Cups
Now with a muffin pan holding paper cups, we will add the bottom layer of chocolate. Using a spoon, pour in about a full tablespoon to the bottom of the cup. Once all the cups are filled shake the muffing tin to level off the chocolate.
Step 4: Make Peanut Butter Shaped Medallions
Now we take some peanut butter and form it into a disc medallion shape, you can make it as thick as you want, then place it on the top of your first layer of chocolate.
Step 5: Add Top Layer of Chocolate
Now let's add our top layer of chocolate. Again about a TBSP here. Use enough to cover the whole top. Then give the muffin pan a good shake to level off the top.
Step 6: Repeat Process With Red Candy Melts
Now we will repeat the whole process with the red candy melts, this will be the base for the Baymax in armor look. 1. Melt candy melts 2. add a bottom layer to the paper cups. 3 add peanut butter disc or medallions. 4 cover the top with more red candy melts. Once you are done, put the whole thing in the refrigerator for about 20 minutes so the chocolate can set.
Step 7: Make Baymax Face Stencil
Next, I made a face stencil on the computer. You can skip this step if you like, but it is easier this way I think. I essentially took a picture I found of Baymax in his armor on the computer, then blacked out just his face part. I then made several copies of the face. Next I printed off the paper and now I taped it to my cutting board. Next I took a piece of parchment paper and taped that to the top. See you can still see the black underneath.
Step 8: Fill in the Face With White Chocolate
Taking my remainder white chocolate, I poured it into a candy bag, or your can use a ziplock back or other sandwich bag. Snip off the end, and then trace around the outside of the face first, then fill it in. Once you are finished with all of them, shake the board a little bit to level off the chocolate a bit. Next put those in the fridge for about 10 minutes to set up.
Step 9: Attach Face
Now we take the peanut butter cups out of the fridge and use a little bit of the chocolate and add some to the top of the peanut butter cup on the red ones. This will act as glue for our face pieces. Now just press on the face pieces, be careful, they are super thin and will break easy.
Step 10: Add Eyes
Now we take our black icing, and put little eyes on all the peanut butter cups. On the white ones, we add a line going from one eye to the other.
