Every year I have the opportunity to make not only cookies, but anything else I come up with for two very sweet little girls birthday. Last year it was a 50's Theme party and this year it's 70"s! How exciting for me because I totally lived the 70's, disco ball and all, in fact, I was "The Dancing Queen". To start the party I made...
Both the Peace Sign and Smiley Face toppers were made with OREO cookie molds.
Only I didn't use OREO's I made brownies and topped them with candy melts. Here's how~
Get your chocolate cookie molds ready.
Start with colored candy melts and to make more vibrant colors, add candy coloring, make sure your don't use food coloring.
For the Peace Sign, I drizzled a little of each color in the mold.
Then I popped it in the microwave for a few seconds and swirled with a toothpick.
Let harden in the refrigerator and turn the mold over and they pop right out.
The Smiley Face was so simple, just add enough candy melts to the bottom of each mold.
Let harden in the refrigerator and turn the mold over and pop out.
Make a 9 x 13 pan of brownies and freeze.
Take the brownies out of the freezer and let thaw just enough to cut a sharp circle out of the brownie with a cookie cutter.
Measure the candy melt topper with the right size cookie cutter and cut enough brownie rounds for your project.
Top with a little chocolate ganache or frosting.
Because I had all the neon candy melts ready, I decided to continue with my psychedelic creations, leading to more smiles...
Ready to get the skinny on it?
Neon colored candy melts.
Wilton Smiley Face Chocolate Mold
Lollipop sticks (Straws to cover sticks if you like - me like!)
After melting the colored candy, pour in the mold with a lollipop stick.
Let harden and pop out of mold. You could leave them as they are, but I decided to add the black smiley face with fondant.
More smiles to come...
HAPPY Chocolate Covered Oreo's - I'm pretty sure that's why they're smiling!
I'm not sure, but I think this mold was for ice cubes.
And because I like chocolate better then ice, I filled it with yellow chocolate candy melts and added a MINI Oreo to the center, covered it with more candy melts.
Let harden in the freezer and pop them out of the mold.
Next week I'm going to share a few more funkadelic favors and I'm psyched, can you tell?
Catch you on the flip side!
