Products and Tools Used:
- Wilton Candy Melting Pot
- Wilton Bright White Candy Melts
- Gold Luster Dust
- Wilton Brush Set
- Disposable Pastry Bags
- Clear Extract
Make the Cookie Dough:
Melt the Candy:
Melt a bag of Wilton Bright White Candy Melts in a melting pot. If you do not have one available, you can use a microwave safe dish, and using 30 second cycles, melt them in the microwave. Be sure to stir well after each cycle and continue to use 30 second cycles until fully melted and smooth.
Transfer your melted candy into a disposable pastry bag and snip off the tip. This makes it super easy to fill the mold!
Fill the Mold:
Next. start filling the bottom and sides of the mold. Do not fill in the tail of the mouse at this time. Get a good thick coat on the sides and bottom.
Then pop the mold into the fridge for about 15 minutes to let the candy harden up.
Filling the Mice:
Next, take your mold out of the fridge and place some of the Pumpkin Pie Spiced Edible Cookie dough in the center.
Be sure to leave room to add more candy to seal off the bottom!
Finish Filling the Mold:
Now, finish filling the mold with more candy melts. Be sure to not overfill the molds or your mice won’t sit flat.
Last, fill in the tail of the mice. Give the mold a couple taps on the counter to remove any air bubbles then pop the mold into the fridge for an hour or until set and hard.
Remove the Mice from the Mold:
To remove the mice from the mold, turn the mold upside down on a flat surface. The tails of the mice are a little fragile, so I just let them release on their own.
Add Gold Color:
The last step is to add a little gold luster dust to the eyes of the mice. This step is optional, but I love the detail that it adds!
Mix a little Gold Luster Dust with some clear vanilla extract in a small bowel. Using a food safe brush, paint the eyes of the mice.
You can store these chocolate mice in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a couple days!
