Apparently my Halloween this year is "not very scary!" To be honest I did hold back- usually it's out super early with our living room, front yard and kitchen decorated to the nines. Well this year I am boring, I guess.
But since we have several weeks till the grand holiday we are slowly working on some new fun decorations and treats! Most will be super easy and kid friendly- so I hope you try them out! And if you need help-please give us (or saige) a call- she LIVES for projects.
Spooky Chocolate Teeth
What you will need:
Microwave safe bowls
Candy jar, these Halloween ones, or this one would be funny like there were dentures in a cup
Take a cup or two of of the white chocolate and melt it in the microwave using this method. Trust me its easiest, fastest, and for me the safest.
Take your teeth mold, check it out, doesn't it remind you of all those impressions from the braces days? (Yah me too. Trust me no braces wax needed today. ) Gently squeeze the white apeels into the teeth cavities on the mold. Remember-WHERE EVER YOU PUT IT YOU WILL BE ABLE TO SEE IT! I was not too worried, they are for Halloween things that are not perfect are great for Halloween and letting Saige do all the chocolate was wonderful for her.
After you have filled the white chocolate in all the molds, place in freezer. Not for very long but long enough for the chocolate to harden. If you were to pour the pink on melted white they would bleed together. Just trust me.
After the white has hardened and the pink is all the way melted, pour the pink chocolate into the mouth cavities. We used about 1 1/2-2 Tablespoons for each one. After you have filled them all, place them in the freezer until completely hardened. For this to work best- make sure your pink chocolate is still pretty warm/hot. It will help to adhere the white to the pink and make it so when you go to pull them out there isn't two pieces.
Also, we attempted to make just the white teeth part- out of 8 teeth ONE turned out. They really need that extra support from the pink so they won't crack.
(These would still be cool in a plastic bag and given as a favor!)
And remember they don't have to be perfect! Let the kids help, play along and they will be so excited for their addition to the Halloween Decor!
After you let the helpers try them out (it is kind of a lot of chocolate so the kiddos shared one) fill them in your favorite or spookiest candy jar and let your friends and guest check out your dental display.
***For the record, other than melting the chocolate and pouring it into the squeeze bottle, Sagie did everything! But after the novelty of making chocolate teeth wore off for Saige I was able to make some without the white spreading out. Just pay attention to where the white chocolate is being put (which the squeeze bottles help a ton here) and remember if they separate when you are pulling them out of the mold, throw them back in your bowl and melt them down again. Or eat them.
