Recently I was invited to go to a Candy Making Workshop with the Dove Chocolate Discoveries Team The Bon-Bon Bombs. Fellow Hungry Housewife Amy Holt (and the FIRST Manager in WA state!) was a sweetie and let me take some pics of these adorable treats! I broke it up into three posts so stay tuned…these are GREAT for last-minute ideas and easy enough for the kids to do!
Candy Cane Sleighs
- Mini candy canes
- Shortbread style cookies
- Dove Chocolate Discoveries chef series dark chocolate (melted)
- Assorted decorations
Spread melted chocolate onto the top of the cookie then sprinkle candies on top. Placing a little bit of chocolate on one side of the long end of two candy canes, attach to the bottom of cookie to make sled legs. Let dry completely on a wax piece of paper before moving.
- Maraschino Cherries; dried and de-stemmed
- Dove Chocolate Discoveries chef series white chocolate (melted)
- Shredded coconut
Take a single Maraschino Cherry and roll it into the melted chocolate then immediately roll into a bed of shredded coconut. SO easy and VERY YUMMY!!!!
Thank you to the Dove Chocolatiers for letting me hang with you! Was super fun- can’t wait until next year!
