The Partiologist: DIY Chocolate Favors!

DIY Chocolate Favors!

 Wait 'til you see what I've done with a few chocolate treats provided by Sweet Works...I think you're going to like them.  Now you can be the sharpest tool in the shed!

Chocolate Tools!

 And so simple to make with the already made chocolate tools by Sweetworks.  I just added the colored fondant to the handles just like real tools.  Would you believe me if I told you I had a tool box?  Yep, I use the hammer and nails all the time to pound holes in the wall for hanging my party stuff.  (I can tell you cuz the hubby doesn't read the blog)

They're so cute, I can't stop looking at them.  Okay, enough admiration.
 
(Contrary to popular belief, I may be the sharpest tool in the shed!)
 
Here's how I made them~
 
Started with the Milk Chocolate Tool Kit from Niagara Chocolates and the perfect size box from BRP Box Shop.
 
Roll out colored fondant for the handles.
 
Here's the trick - make sure the fondant is super soft and fresh!
 
After rolling out a thin piece of red fondant, I covered the bottom of the screwdriver and pressed the fondant into the mold of the chocolate handle and trimmed about 1/4" around. 
 
Then I tucked the excess fondant under the tool. 
 
Same for the saw - after laying the blue fondant on the saw handle, I cut a diagonal to fit and then pushed the fondant into the mold of the chocolate. 
 
I used the ball tool from the Wilton fondant Tool set to press the design. 

Continue making the rest of the tools. 
 
After wrapping the hammer with the yellow fondant, I used a wood grain impression mat to press over the yellow fondant.   
 
Ready to give to any Mr. Fix It!
 
Another way to give edible tools would be the cookie kind.
 
Originally, I was going to decorate each tool, then ran out of time. 
 
So I decided upon a tool box cookie and dip set, just dip the tool in the frosting and top with a Sixlets or two, tucked inside another perfect size "tool" box from BRP Box Shop.
 

Last, but definitely not least, is the sport ball packages!
 
Showing only the golf, tennis and baseballs, Sweet Works has any other chocolate sport ball you could possibly need! 
 
The tags I made were for father's day, with a little change in text, I think they would be super duper de doo for any sport party! 
 
 Chocolate - For Father's Day!
