Melt at least Two different types of chocolate into separate bowls.
Blow up a balloon and tape it to a bowl. Pour 1st layer of melted chocolate over the balloon. Set the balloon in the refrigerator to harden the chocolate. After the chocolate has hardened, pour the next layer over the 1st layer. Set that in the refrigerator and let it harden some more. Once it is solid, remove from the refrigerator and “pop” the balloon. Carefully remove the bowl and the balloon and Voila! You have a most delicious chocolate bowl to hold those halloween treats.

How to Make Chocolate Dipped Cupcakes

How to Make Chocolate Dipped Cupcakes

This bakery makes it look oh-so easy!

Anything that comes close to the experience of eating a DQ chocolate-dipped ice cream cone immediately has my attention. About once-a-month, my husband and I go out for a “cheap date” and we often end up going to Dairy Queen for dipped cones or Dilly bars.

“Cupcakes Take the Cake” in Seattle’s trendy Wallingford neighborhood held an exciting cupcake meet-up  (April 2012). Trophy Cupcakes bakery demonstrated their chocolate dipping process with these high hat cupcakes. It seems pretty straight-forward, doesn’t it?

This recipe for chocolate peanut butter cupcakes will give you instructions and the chance to try the dipping process. Note the flavor bonus is reminiscent of Reese’s!

1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Line muffin pan with 10 cupcake cups.

2. In medium bowl combine flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.

3. In larger bowl combine sugar, buttermilk, oil, egg, and vanilla until smooth. Add dry mixture and whisk until smooth. Spoon batter into cupcake cups, dividing evenly.

4. Bake 25 minutes or until center is just set. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes and then transfer cupcakes to wire rack. Cool completely.

5. While cupcakes are cooling, prepare the buttercream frosting. Combine sugar, egg whites, and salt in bowl of electric stand mixer.

6. Set bowl over pan of simmering water. Gently whisk until mixture registers 160 degrees F on instant-read thermometer.

7. Immediately transfer bowl to electric stand mixer. With whisk attachment, whip on medium-high speed until mixture resembles consistency of shaving cream.

8. On medium speed, add butter one piece at a time, until combined and creamy.

9. Whip in peanut butter and vanilla, and beat until smooth.

10. Transfer buttercream to pastry bag fitted with a plain 1/2-inch tip (#808).

11. Pipe 1/3 cup frosting onto each cupcake. Chill cupcakes in refrigerator until buttercream is completely firm, about 1 hour.

12. Once the cupcakes have chilled, make the chocolate coating. Place oil and chocolate in a medium bowl and melt over a pan of gently simmering water.

13. Stir until chocolate has melted and mixture is smooth. Transfer to a large coffee mug.

14. Holding cupcake by the bottom, carefully dip into the chocolate. Be sure to submerge all of the buttercream.

15. Pull up and hold for a few seconds to let excess chocolate drip off. Transfer to cooling rack and repeat with remaining cupcakes.

16. Before serving, let cupcakes rest a few minutes so chocolate can set.

Yield: 10 cupcakes. Active time: 1 hour. Total time: 3 hours

Fantasy Tie Dyeing DIY

DIY Fantasy Tie Dyeing - You can create some fun and interesting designs simply by being a little creative with your approach. Most of the technique is in the way you wrap the fabric

Overview:

You can create some fun and interesting designs simply by being a little creative with your approach. Most of the technique is in the way you wrap the fabric, use rubber bands to define space and use objects to create circles and odd shapes. A more advanced approach will be a later post. You can use colored fabrics and use a contrasting dye color to arrive at some beautiful combinations.

Ingredients:

• a tub or sink that can be in use for a few hours

• a selection of dyes – these can be found at Arts and Crafts stores or Dept. Stores

• various sizes of rubber bands

• a good pair of rubber gloves

• some marbles and other various size round objects

• access to tap water

• select some t-shirts, cotton shorts, old jeans, etc.

 Preparation:

Sketch out a basic design or simply start by tying objects into the material

Rubber band your garment according to the design you want. There is a long list of designs to choose from.

Some basic designs are as follows:

By placing a marble in the fabric and securing with a rubber band, it will be a circle or starburst depending on how large the marble

You can create lines by rolling the fabric and placing rubber bands at intervals

Alternating rubber bands and marbles creates a layered effect of starbursts and lines

Wadding the fabric and tying with large rubber bands gives a more “free and wild” look


Try various methods on old pieces of fabric until you have the combination you like and then apply to your chosen fabric.

Put on your rubber gloves to mix the dye in with the water. Follow the instructions on the box. Rit makes a series of dependable dyes that are easy to use and to clean up after. There are other brands available that have a variety of colors.

It normally takes about 15 minutes to 20 minutes for the dye to set. It will darken the longer you keep the fabric in the dye, so keep on an eye on things until it is just the right color. Then, remove and rinse with cold running water. When the excess dye has been flushed, remove the rubber bands and other objects.

Hang the fabric out to dry in the sun or in a warm place until dry.
You then can repeat the process by selecting a small area of the fabric you’ve just finished, and place a rubber band or marble with a rubber band around it and let that area hang over the edge of the sink into a different colored dye.  It’s easier if you can secure a hanger or piece of strong string to hang the fabric above the tub allowing the desired section to dip into the dye.
This is a fun project for all ages.
