I love it when I can use a product for more than one project … guess what I used to get the impressions in this candy.
If you guessed texture tiles that were designed for fondant or icing … you were right! I found these at Michael’s and are from Duff … of course! The two tiles (5-1/2″ x 7-1/2″ each) come in one package and are pretty
cheap inexpensive. This is what they look like …
This is what you will need …
- Candy melts (I used white, dark chocolate and orange)
- Texture tiles
- Rice Krispies cereal (optional)
- Skull candies (Wilton)
- Rubber or silicone spatula
Decide which side of the tiles you will use … I almost used the wrong side of the “words” tile … the words would have been backwards! Scoop some melted dark chocolate on the spider webs … and spread it around …
Using a spatula, scrape off excess chocolate (it can be reused). Let the chocolate firm up …
As you can see … it is not scraped perfectly clean …
Now repeat using orange melted candy on the words tile. Then mix some Rice Krispies into the melted white chocolate … you could leave it plain, add nuts or whatever you like. Pour the white chocolate on top of the spider webs and gently spread around …
Pour dark chocolate on the words tile and spread it around … then put the tiles in the fridge or freezer for a few minutes to firm up …
The candy will remove from the tiles very easily. The edges are not smooth … but I think that’s OK … it adds character …
To decorate … I used melted orange chocolate and M&M’s to create spiders …
I used more melted chocolate to “glue” the skull candies …
This is one of those “flexible” projects … change-up the colors … use different decorations … use the whole tile or just a small part … use your imagination!
absolutely adorable! I live them. They are so creative! I will definitely be trying to do this. Thank you!
This is something that I had been thinking about doing for some time … it was easier than I thought it would be. Thank you for stopping by!
Those are fantastic!
Thanks Gwen! Soooo easy too.
Neat! Awesome! Cute! Fun! Cant wait to try this with my 5 yo!!
Have fun !
Oh goodness…we might have to try this!! thanks for the cool idea!
Give it a try … I found it to be very easy.
Thank you so much for this idea. I found the tiles at Michael’s on clearance for 2.99. I used white and black candy melts and crushed oreos on the back. they were super easy and turned out great! I so appreciate your sharing this excellent tutorial!
Oreos are a great idea! Isn’t “clearance” a wonderful thing?
Wow, I’m so impressed….very clever! This is my first visit to your blog, and I think I’m going to like it here!
Welcome! I hope you like it here.
