Chocolate Stars

Easy recipe for chocolate stars using a candy mold

by Kerrie McLoughlin

Now that Thanksgiving is over, let’s concentrate on our holiday baking, shall we? For years now I have not had time to mess with this recipe for chocolate stars, as much as I love making things for people and sampling the chocolate fun! But this year will be different! This year is as easy as 1, 2, 3 … (okay, and 4)

ONE … buy some milk chocolate melts from your local baking store or online someplace like Kitchen Krafts.

TWO … melt them in a double boiler or modified Double Boiler as I have made below.  I just add water to a bigger pan and boil the water. Then I put a smaller pan inside it and add the chocolate (or whatever flavor you like) melts and stir them until they are smooth.

THREE … spoon chocolate into a mold like stars or Christmas trees or skulls or whatever floats your holiday boat. You can get molds at your local baking store or online at a store like Wilton.  Smack the mold on the counter lightly to get the chocolate to settle and to get air bubbles out.

FOUR … pop the mold into the fridge for a bit until the chocolate sets up. Then pop the chocolate creations out of the mold and … into your mouth, of course. And then the next batches can go into nice holiday boxes or bags to give to neighbors, coworkers, teachers, the mailman, friends, family and your mouth again. ENJOY!
