For Halloween body part chocolate candies, you can either make your own or buy what you need.
It sounds so funny to say you're looking to buy body part chocolate candy, doesn't it? :) So ghoulishly delightful!
If you are simply looking for some pre-made, foil wrapped chocolate body parts for Halloween, you can pick them up at a couple of places online if you can't find them locally.
On the other hand, if you want the fun of making your own, I've got some great Halloween body part chocolate candy recipes just for you.
The easiest method is to use Halloween chocolate molds in the shapes you want.
Making molded chocolates is really very simple, but you can get creative with colored candy melts to bring your Halloween chocolates to life.
You can make oozing chocolate brains with chocolate and marshmallow creme filling. Sound difficult? It's really not!
What about chocolate eyeballs, skeleton fingers, lips, feet, etc? There are molds for lollipops, molded chocolate pretzels, and stand alone Halloween chocolates, so take your pick.
You'll find everything you need at Candyland Crafts. Not sure you can do it? Don't worry! Keep reading to learn exactly how to make your own creepy chocolate eyeball candy.
Maybe filled with gooey filling? It sounds icky, I know, but imagine how the kids will react. Here's what you'll need...
You can find the eyeball chocolate mold at ChocoMold.com. You may already have some of the items in your own pantry, but everything else is available at Candyland Crafts.
All you have to do is melt each chocolate separately. You can simply use the microwave if you like. Only melt for 10-30 seconds at a time, depending on the amount of chocolate you are melting. Stir after each heating and don't overheat.
Start with the dark chocolate and paint in the pupil. Let it set. Then
pain the iris and the red veins, letting it set again.
If you don't let the different layers harden, you'll most likely end up smearing the layer below and ruining the look. You may even want to use a dabbing motion for the iris to avoid smearing the pupil.
Next you will pain a couple of layers of white for the eyeball, pausing to let it set between each layer. Fill 3/4 of the way with your chosen filling and then top it off by filling it with melted white chocolate in the squeeze bottle. Tap the mold gently on the counter to even it out.
Once your new Halloween body part chocolate candies have set, pop them in the freezer for about 5 minutes to make them easy to remove from the molds.
Want to make a chocolate brain? It's a similar process but uses a different Halloween chocolate mold.
If you don't want to use a mold, you can still make chocolate eyeballs for Halloween. Look at these Halloween recipes for a Halloween peanut butter eyeball candy recipe.
