After my last post, I was working on Cocoa Bombs for the Ugly Sweater Boutique when I came across this Christmas tree pan that my Sister-in-Law Geri sent me a few years ago.
Actually, there are two of them. Anyway, I thought some peppermint cocoa bomb trees might be fun!
I filled the molds just like I do with my regular bombs.
Pull the chocolate up the sides and leave a cavity in the middle.
I used Andes mint chips to fill them with the peppermint flavor and I also added peppermint marshmallows.
Next, add the Nesquik, then cover them with chcolate.
When they are hardened, pop them out of the pan. Oh! I forgot, you must spray the pan liberally with a cooking spray. They were a beast to get out, I am on the lookout for silicone shaped tree molds.
I have also been going crazy trying to find the cherry chips that I use for Cherry Cordial Cocoa Bombs. They were one of the most popular flavors last year, but no one seemed to be carrying the chips this year. But, finally I found them at Albertsons!
I got right to work making my bombs because the craft show is right around the corner! Here are some photos!
. I didn't take a picture, but I wanted to tell you about the candy cane Candy Melts that I found to use to decorate my peppermint bombs! Perfect, right? I will post more pictures as I get all of the bombs bagged and ready for the show.
Also, while browsing the internet, I found these: http://princesspinkygirl.com/diy-peppermint-candy-spoons/ They are pepperment candy spoons dipped in chocolate that would be great to go with Pepperming Cocoa Bombs. But, I can't get the photo to load here. So go and check them out. I want to get that mold and try them!
I am off work this week for Thanksgiving! Hopefully I can blog again soon! So much to do....
