For a scary halloween nights or for a monstrous chocolate cravings - we present Chocolate Skulls.
These skulls are perfect for every Halloween event. We also made a "nice" box so you can gift them to your friends (or enemies who you wish to be friends).
This instructable is so easy that you can easily do this with kids as well.
Step 1: Ingredients and Tools
You need only:
- White chocolate
- Dark chocolate
- Silicone mold
- Small kettles
And for the packaging
- "Parchment" paper for printer
- A box for the chocolate
Any box will do. In this instructable we recycle a bit and use old headphone box.
Step 2: Melted White Chocolate
The first step is to make the chocolate into a small pieces. Don't mix the colors.
Prepare the bigger one of the kettles by filling it half way with water. Let the water boil and lower the heat.
Add chocolate into a smaller kettle and put the kettle inside of the bigger kettle and melt the chocolate pieces carefully. The water does not need to be boiling at this point. When the chocolate is running enough, start to fill the molds.
White chocolate will start to turn easily to toffee if you warm it too long time. So as soon as the chocolate is running (it can have even small chunks left) fill the molds.
If you fill the molds only with a spoonful of white chocolate you will get much more interesting looking skulls. This way they don't have all white face.
If you want all white faced skulls, fill the mold about half way.
Step 3: Melted Dark Chocolate
Prepare the dark chocolate the same way as the white one. Fill in the mold and put the chocolate to fridge to cool down.
Step 4: The Packaging
Draw a horrifying picture on the paper. Or find nice image from internet and print it on the paper.
Name your chocolate skulls with a Halloween name. Ours is called Poison Bites.
Glue the paper tightly on the box and when the glue is dry cut the excess paper off from the edges.
Step 5: Boxing Day
When the chocolate has cooled down you can remove them from the mold by simply pushing them from the behind of the mold.
The skulls have now white face and solid black back.
Put some extra filling to the box (like paper strips) and put the skulls in to the box.
Step 6: Presentation
When your friends arrive to your Halloween party, you can bring out your box of surprises.
Remember to be sure that each one will get one of the skulls. These simple chocolates are deadly delicious!
