Marshmallow Chocolatete Skull Tutorial by claremanson Marshmallow Chocolatete Skull Tutorial by claremanson
I wasn't going to buy anything new this year for Halloween but then I saw this silicone Halloween Ice Cube Tray mold at the 1, I couldn't resist.

The possibilities you can do with chocolate in silicone molds are endless, you can use different types, flavours and coloured chocolate and if you have big deep molds like I do then you can go even further and add all sorts of fillings such as raisins, crushed biscuits, sweets etc! It is so simple and great fun.

I haven't written any quantities as naturally everyone is going to need a different amount, you can easily judge it by eye, put a square or two in one of your molds and that should give you an idea of how much you may need.

Be careful though! Once you start buying molds, you will not stop, no matter how hard you try! Trust me!

The skulls came out fine, i just kind of peel them back a little then tap them, the crossbones broke but I think that was because there was too man marshmallows in them.

This is actually perfect for that ^^ It takes only 10 or maybe even 15 minuets.. the rest of the time it in the fridge, you don't even have to watch it. I made some while at school >3< This is why I love chocolate..

I love the colour on the final sweet. I didn't realise refrigerating chocolate made it go that colour!

It was a normal milk chocolate colour but daylight was fading so I had to take the photo at a different place and angle than I normally would making the light reflect off of it.

Oh I see, lol. I thought it was something amazing that happened to the chocolate, like when chocolate bars go white because of the milk in the chocolate or whatever it is that makes them go white.

It's actually because of the silicon tray.Silicon completely strip the chocolate of any shininess. I normally dont like that, but it looks good here.

claremanson Featured By Owner Oct 5, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
It definitely lost it's shininess but it was brown, the colour is just the light reflecting off it.

Oooooo. Didn't realize that. I'm curious, do you follow any youtube chefs? One I follow made something like this where she arranged some regular sized marshmallows in a tray, then mixed together chocolate, Peanut butter and some butter and poured that over the marshmallows. The chocolate coating was like a ganache.

No, I have never watched any such video, I only listen/watch music videos on youtube.  I like to find out how to make things by experimenting, I find it much more fun.

Then you also get to use all the chocolate you dislike from trick-o-treating

Trick or treating isn't very big around my parts, not at all where I live.

Oh... where do you live then o-o
(Trick or treating is really big here... I mean we have neighbors who make haunted houses and things. It turns into a compition :XD: some people use it for charity too.)

In the center of a small town i the UK, all bt one of my neighbours are strangers, no one says hello when passing each other in the street, I do not like it here.
