  • 16 ounces white chocolate or confectionery coating, melted (and tempered if using pure white chocolate)
  • 18 1/2-inch candy eyes
  • 18 1/4-inch candy eyes
  • edible red luster dust
  • 6 ounces red modeling chocolate
  • 2 ounces blue modeling chocolate
  • 18 cupcakes baked in tall cupcake liners (see blog post for notes)
  • 4 1/2 cups chocolate frosting
  • 18 Pocky Sticks
  • 1 cup colorful dehydrated marshmallows
  1. Use a food-use-only paint brush to brush white chocolate in a thin layer over the top of a plastic spork.

  2. Wipe away any chocolate that drips down the the backside of the spork.

  3. Chill in the refrigerator if using tempered pure white chocolate or in the freezer if using confectionery coating (candy melts) for about 3 minutes until hardened.

  4. Allow the spork to come to room temperature then brush on a second layer of white chocolate.

  5. Chill until the white chocolate hardens.

  6. The chocolate should retract from the spork so you can pop it off.

  7. Attach one 1/2 inch candy eye and one 1/4 inch candy eye to each white chocolate spork.

  8. Brush rosy red cheeks onto each Forky using edible red luster dust.

  9. Roll red and blue modeling chocolate into thin ropes and create a mouth, eyebrow and arms for each Forky. See the blog post for detailed instructions.

  10. Attach the mouth and eyebrow to the white chocolate spork using water.

Assemble the cupcakes
  1. If desired, fill the bottom of each garbage can with candy.

  2. Place one jumbo cupcake into each 9-ounce disposable cup.

  3. Set the cupcakes down into the garbage cans.

  4. Add a scoop of frosting onto each cupcake and spread over top.

  5. Break off about 1/3rd of each Pocky Stick and insert the longer piece into each cupcake about an inch from one edge.

  6. Sprinkle dehydrated marshmallows over the frosting.

  7. Set the trash can lid over the Pocky Stick allowing a small opening near the front of the trash can.

  8. Insert one white chocolate Forky into the cupcake at the very front edge of the garbage can.

  9. Wrap a red modeling chocolate arms/hands around the spork and press the hands onto the top edge of the garbage can.
