Chocolate medals

In celebration for the Olympics starting tomorrow we decided to make some sweet treats to enjoy ourselves and to give others as presents. These chocolate medals have been great fun to make and so simple. All you need is 

  • Two blocks of cooking chocolate or one depending on how many you want to make 
  • Decorations
  • Mould 
  • Laces

Break up the chocolate trying not to eat any

Melt the chocolate in the microwave.  Little Boo enjoyed putting the time in.

Place chocolate into moulds we just used the cupcake ones.

Place decorations onto the chocolate (we were able to sprinkle these above the cases as the chocolate is still quite warm so be careful)

Place into the fridge to set

I put holes into the chocolates using a skewer.  

Thread the medals with strawberry laces

Decorate the medals with squeeze icing (add numbers 1st, 2nd, 3rd)

Little Boo enjoyed this bit we did some with
numbers then the others we just made pretty.

Store in the fridge and eat and enjoy!  Sorry about the unhealthy nature of the post.  I just thought they would make great gifts for people to enjoy during the opening ceremony.  Get us thinking about all those medals!
