UPDATE: I can’t even believe this but hours after I posted this, guess
who knocked on my door. Yep, Christmas Carolers. Students from the
middle school that is at the back of our neighborhood came around
singing songs. So cool. It made me so happy. I treated them with some
chocolate to thank them for stopping by my house.
I used dark modeling chocolate to create the eyes and hat and milk modeling chocolate to make the hair, but you can simply
color some white modeling chocolate with black and brown food coloring instead. Or if you make dark and white modeling chocolate, just blend some of each together to create brown.
modeling chocolate and color it black for the hat, eyes, and mouth (or use dark.) Color some brown (or use milk.) Leave a small amount white for the hat band and color the rest peach
(skin toned) for the caroler’s face. For detailed coloring instructions, go here. This is where I wear those food handling gloves, otherwise my hands turn a rainbow of colors.
white, peach, and black (or dark) modeling chocolate to 1/16th of an
inch thickness. Use the egg shaped cookie cutter to cut out peach
colored modeling chocolate for each face.
templates shown in the picture above before cutting them out
of paper, or hand cut your own templates. Set the hat template over
some black modeling chocolate and cut out around it. Cut
the hair out of brown modeling chocolate.
pastry tip to cut two small circles
for each of the eyes out of black or dark modeling chocolate.
To do this you’ll want to press the pastry tip, tip side down, into
the modeling chocolate cutting a small circle, then turn it upside
down and tap on counter and the circles will drop out the larger end
of the tip. I usually cut a bunch of circles, before turning the tip
upside down. To make his eyes moon shaped, use the tip to cut off a
small amount from each circle. Cut round noses out of peach modeling
chocolate using the same technique. Use the #10 tip to cut out each mouth, then press the circle in between your thumb and finger to make the circle a bit larger and somewhat more oval.
together using water. Example: brush the back side of the hair with
water and press it onto the middle of the peach egg. Top it with the hat.
