Mallary kept wanting to make hot chocolate bombs, and I finally ordered molds after Christmas. They came pretty fast and we made some the next day. I forgot I hadn't posted that video of her making them... I'll get on that...
I got the idea to do a Yoda one from a Yoda cake I saw, and finally decided to try it. I posted the first one I made farther down in the post, and it's pretty funny. Contrary to popular belief, I have plenty of fails when I experiment. These aren't perfect, but they are still a fun idea!
The eyes need some work, but they are better than the others below.
These are the molds we used:
|To make Yoda's clothes I added some chocolate chips to the white melting chocolate.|
I have a big box of these I keep in my pantry for projects like this:
|Bahahaha! This was my first Yoda. He's so funny looking!|
I used white chocolate hot cocoa because I knew it would keep a cool green color with the melts. The kids liked the green hot chocolate, and honestly it tasted good!
Then, I thought... these kind of look like golden snitches! I tried dying the melts with yellow food coloring and using a gold spray over them. I also tried spraying the gold into the molds then adding the chocolate. Similar results despite the different methods.
Just a little fun Valentine gift or activity! Enjoy!
