Candy Nachos




Introduction: Candy Nachos

This sugary monstrosity is probably my silliest (and most ill-advisable) Instructable yet.  But i thought making 'chocolate chips' was a funny idea : )

Teacher Notes

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: What You'll Need

Chocolate chips
Peanut butter chips
Marshmallow Fluff
Green gummy candy
Red and Yellow food coloring

Silicone Putty

Double boiler
Mixing bowl
Knife/Cutting board

Step 2: Chip Molds

Mix silicone putty according to directions and press in chips.

Allow to sit the prescribed amount of time and remove chips.  You now have reusable tortilla chip molds which you could also use to make Jell-O chips, cookie chips, or any other mold-able substance chip : )

Step 3: Chocolate (and Peanut Butter) Chips

Time to use your new molds!
  • Melt chips (chocolate, peanut butter, white chocolate, etc.)
  • Spoon into mold
  • Tap on counter several times to remove air bubbles
  • Put in fridge to set
  • When solid, remove from mold

Step 4: Toppings

I picked up a few types of candy to simulate some common nacho ingredients, but I'm sure there are some others that could be added.
  • Cut up yellow and red Twizzlers for tomatoes and peppers
  • Dice Hersey bar for ground beef
  • Slice green gummies for lettuce
  • Cut out center of opaque green gummies for jalapeno rings

Step 5: Cheese and Sour Cream

Marshmallow Fluff* will serve as both the cheese and sour cream.  make sure to reserve a scoop of white fluff for the top.  Then add a few spoons to a bowl with red and yellow food coloring to attain that lovely unnatural orange glow of nacho cheese.

* Fun Fact: Marshmallow Fluff was invented in Somerville Masachusetts by a guy named Archibald Query in 1917.

Step 6: Assemble Using Lots of Air Quotes

Putting it together:
  • Set down a layer of 'chips'
  • Add some 'cheese'
  • Sprinkle on the 'ground beef'
  • Follow with 'tomatoes' and 'peppers'
  • Top with 'sour cream' and 'jalapenos'
Even if you don't eat any of this cute but terrifying project, just being around it may induce cravings for an apple or nice salad...

    Thanks! But just to remind people, this is more of a silly art project than actual one should eat fluff covered chocolate!

    I'm getting sick just from looking at it... No surprise that it came out of the US, though.

    Ooh I'll bet if you grate some dark chocolate into the chip molds before pouring in the lighter colored chocolate, it'll look like dark bits of corn and pepper in the chips :)

    Oh, totally...I think of it as more a sugar sculpture than something you should actually serve to people.
