[Bugs] in making!

7:55 AM Saturday, July 30, 2011

I said that I will tell you how to make the bugs in my previous post. I did see it somewhere on the internet, but never made a note of it, but here is my version of it.

::You'll need::

1) little chocolate sweets such as M&M's, smarties or any sweet that you want to use for making your little bugs.

2) baking parchment / wax paper; and

3) a dark coloured pencil

::How to::

1) Draw the bodies of your bugs on the baking parchment (make sure that you check the size of your sweets to more or less decide how big they should be).

2) Once finished, turn the paper over and put it on a white sheet on a baking tray.

3) Melt some chocolate bits in a zip-lock bag in the microwave for 30 sec (or until it's melted)

4) Be careful as spots can be really hot. Make a very small hole on one end of the bag and push the chocolate slightly to the corner and use this as you would with a piping bag and 'draw' the chocolate bug-bodies.

5) Make 2-3 at a time and add the sweets on top of the chocolate and push a little bit to set in the chocolate.

6) Once finished put the tray in the fridge for 10 minutes until chocolate has set completely.

7) Remove the bugs carefully and add them to your cakes or cupcakes.

Kids, especially boys just love them. ENJOY making them.

See you soon.
