dark chocolate candy bars (larger, thicker bars work best)
Special Equipment Needed:
disposable pastry bag or a zip top bag
drinking straws (don’t use bendable straws with ridges, you need a smooth surface)
glass filled with a few inches of sugar
wooden skewer or long toothpick
optional: candy bar candy molds (I used a 6-1/2″ by 4-1/2″ rectangle mold)
Reheat the white candy melts in the microwave on defrost for 10 second intervals, stirring after each, until melted. Use a bit of melted candy to attach the frame pieces and a few pieces of candy chalk to the chalkboard.
To make an apple, color some white modeling chocolate with red candy coloring. Pinch off about a teaspoonful and roll into a ball. Flatten and shape it into an apple shape. Color some modeling chocolate brown to create the apple stems and some green for the leaves. Attach decorations with melted confectionery coating/candy melts.
These chocolate chalkboards can be personalized for any occasion and will make great gifts for teachers, students, and faculty members.
