We are getting ready for Valentine’s Day like everyone else. Most years we have fun making & sharing edible Valentine’s from the kitchen. This year my daughter wanted to find something we haven’t done in the past & we accidentally stumbled upon chocolate molds in the form of a mustache & with the latest mustache rage still making a big hit with the kids, who could resist?
We found ours at the local craft store & with our coupon, the mold was under $5.
What do you need for this entire project?
* Free Printables (see below)
*Scissors or scrapbook cutter
* Card Stock
* Mustache Mold
* Melting Chocolate
* Cake Pop/Candy Sticks
* Candy/Cake pop clear bags
This project is really very simple. Print the free printable(s) below, we have a blue & and a pink for you to select from & there are four on each page. Cut the printed Valentine’s into fours, glue each one to colored card stock & cut them so that just small amount of the colored card stock extends to show. It’s easier if you have a scrapbook cutter, but scissors can do the job.
Melt the chocolate, pour it in the molds, let it begin to set, add the sticks & make certain they are covered with chocolate. Let the chocolates set until they have fully hardened and then remove them from the mold. Repeat this process until you have the number of mustaches needed for your class.
Cake Pop/Candy Sticks: We found our sticks for $1.99 a pack at the local craft store and with a 40% coupon they are very reasonable.
Chocolate: We purchased our chocolate melts on sale for $1.99 and decided on milk & dark chocolate, but you can use other colors if desired.
Last year we made a Tic Tac Toe game with a free printable to share. If you want to see the entire process & grab that free download you can click here. And, several years before we made Hot Cocoa Cone treats & you can find all of the instructions for this food craft by clicking here, which are always a big hit for the winter break & perfect for Snowy day fun.
