The stinky pine tree coughed on the brave pig, or Chocolate letters.

Today we made chocolate letters. Here's what you need: 1 large, high-quality chocolate bar (not milk chocolate) and sprinkles or mini-candies.
  1. Place the chocolate bar in a sealable plastic bag and microwave on high for one minute at a time until the chocolate melts.
  2. Snip a tiny hole in the corner of the bag and then squeeze the chocolate onto wax paper. Decorate with sprinkles.
  3. Refrigerate the letters until they harden.
Zachary and Corey had fun with this, but I think next time I'll try to get them to make thicker letters:

I would have loved this more than my kids ever would have. Of course 'I' would have had to tell them that it was not edible and that 'I' would have to do all the cleanup.....

savor, savor, lick, lick, yum, yum..... Oh the dream I having!!!! Snap out of it Shari!!!

Thanks for such a fun idea. Just think, you could have them make letters for cupcakes and cakes, on cookies too. It would be a lot of fun.
