After eating the yummy candy eggs last weekend, we thought to try our hand at making candy bars … The result? It could have been better …
Bought some meet break-apart molds from Amazon. Wash ’em, rinsed ’em, and filled ’em.
Pretty nice molds, there they are in their packaging ^^
I melted the rest of the “melts” (not actual white chocolate) I had left over from my last candy thing.
And poured ~
Then poured some more ~
I did his before work yesterday in hopes that they would be hard by the time I came home … That didn’t actually happen though …
Through no fault of the melts or the molds I made a mistake … I don’t own a double boiler and the microwave did a less than excellent job melting stuff last weekend so I thought I’d do it on the stove …
Had the fire on low, stirred a lot, but it seemed super dried out! Using the stove without a double boiler … That was mistake one … The second mistake was adding water!
I turned my melts into … Chewy stuff!!?? Like super chewy, like half melted candy corn chewy or gummy worm chewy (the vegetarian ones of course).
So, that was a fun experience! I’m gonna get a double boiler now … Totally see the need for it! Hehe 🙂
Ah, I apologize to anyone who read down this far earlier! I let this post go up before formatting the pictures. I usually write posts up on my phone, schedule them, and then log onto WordPress through my computer to rotate and scale the photos. It’s all fixed now though!
