VALENTINE PARTY IDEAS PART 1 (below)
PART 4 BONUS: rest of the vday photo shoot coming this weekend 🙂
DIRECTIONS: This time I used about 2/3 of a cup to fill one mold tray.
I like to work with smaller batched so none of the chocolate gets scorched or too hot.
Frame 1. before microwaving
Frame 2. 20 seconds at 50%, stir
Frame 3. 20 seconds at 50%, stir
Frame 4. 20 seconds at 50%, stir
Frame 5: 10 seconds at 50%, stir
WHEN YOUR CHOCOLATE IS ALMOST MELTED, CUT THE TIME IN HALF TO PREVENT SCORCHING CHOCOLATE.
I used these SUCKER MOLDS (yea another thing available online) from Orson Gygi $1.99 each. NOT BAD!!!
SOON….You’ll see what we used the LIPS & OWLS for :)!
OWL MOLDS & **TANGERINE TANGO** chocolate
Fill the molds until the chocolate is level with the surface of the tray. Carefully pour the chocolate and insert sticks. You can insert the sticks before or right after you pour. If you have a more detailed mold like this, use a small spoon to guide it into all areas of the mold. This will help ensure a smooth surface when you pop them out of the molds.
WHEN YOU ARE DONE FILLING THE MOLDS, PLACE THEM FOR 20 MINUTES IN THE FREEZER….set a timer so you don’t forget. After trying the fridge and leaving them on the counter, the freezer for 20 worked the very best and yielded the best results. After the 20 minutes pop them out and throw them in a cute bag with a tie if you feel like it ;). I used Cello bags & twine from Orson Gygi.
I gave the boys a bag of X’s and the girls a bag of O’s and had them share a board. You could also use candy hearts or another candy for this.

Thanks for the step by step! Perfect timing! I was going to venture to make these for my dauthers’ birthdays coming up next month. I was hoping to make them ahead of time and was wondering how long they are good for. Do you happen to know?
Wish I was still your neighbor so I could have come to your party. Looks fun!
