Use this step by step tutorial to make beautiful snowflake cupcakes. All you need is white chocolate and a mold. Perfect for Winter or Christmas parties!
Since this chilly winter refuses to go away, I made these Winter snowflake cupcakes.
It gave me a chance to use my snowflake chocolate mold.
I ordered it a few days ago from Amazon for only 2 bucks!
I have always been fascinated with snowflakes!
This must be the biologist in me talking but have you ever looked closely at snowflakes and checked out those tiny little details?!
Each one is so different from one another… It’s just incredible!
I love using chocolate molds for cake and cupcake decorating.
They are very easy to use and clean and super cheap too!
And there are so many designs out there.
To make these snowflake cupcakes, you will need the following INGREDIENTS/ SUPPLIES:
These are the INSTRUCTIONS:
Place candy melts in a squeeze bottle and heat in the microwave until candies are fully melted.
Don’t overheat! I was heating at 30 second increments.
Now, start squeezing melted candy into the center of the cavities until most of the cavity is covered. Do not fill the corners yet.
Now, start tapping the side of the tray gently until melted candy spreads into the corners of the cavity.
Place your tray in the freezer for 15-20 minutes until the chocolate hardens.
Then, turn over your mold onto a smooth surface lined with wax paper.
Tap the top of your mold and the snowflake candies will just fall out!
And you are done!
Oh… Here is a little Tip:
Make sure to avoid over-filling the cavities…
I over-filled this one and notice how it looks like an ugly blob…
When that blob hardened, it looked like the awful snowflake on the left.
The snowflake on the right was made from a cavity that wasn’t overfilled and looks perfect!
You can use these chocolate snowflakes immediately on your cakes and cupcakes.
Or you can keep them for later.
Store them at room temperature in a sealed container, away from heat.
Make sure each piece is on a small piece of wax paper or else the pieces will stick together and get messed up!
And there you have it… Easy snowflake cupcakes for Winter!
Well, that’s all for today.
Until next time, tata my lovelies!
