Things you need
- Melting chocolate or chocolate chips
- Double boiler
- 1 tsp vanilla, almond, peppermint or orange extract (optional)
- Skull mould
Fill the bottom of a double boiler with approximately 1 inch of water.
Place the bottom pot on the hob and set to high until the water boils. Turn the heat down to low to maintain a gentle simmer.
Place the top pot over the bottom pot and add the chocolate.
Melt the chocolate. Stir it as it melts to maintain a smooth texture. Add your extract of choice while the chocolate melts and continue stirring.
Pour the melted chocolate into the moulds. If you have a two part mould, fill both halves before snapping the mould together.
Cool and harden the chocolate completely before removing from the mould. For ease, place the filled moulds in the refrigerator for five to ten minutes before removing the chocolate skulls.
