The winter weather has started to settle in here in the Pacific Northwest and the gloom was starting to get us down. Chef Mitchie of Mitchie's Munchies in Las Vegas swooped in with the sweetest solution! These delicious, shimmering white chocolate seashells have got us dreaming of summer days by the seashore!
Take a look at how she made these and bring a little touch of summer into your own winter doldrums!
Mitchie started these seashells by casting melted white chocolate in chocolate candy molds. Once set, the shells were released from their cavities and Chef Mitchie used our Sugar Blade to trim off excess from edges of shells.
Next Mitchie got out her Sugarworks Artists' Brushes and an assortment of pearl Luster Dusts.
Separating out small quantities of all the colors you plan to use onto a plate, paper towel, or work surface allows for easy access and blending and eliminates the risk of cross-color contamination in your jars.
Our Artists' Brushes are ideal for working with dry dusts. Dry dusting candies like these chocolate seashells allows the color to blend into the chocolate without the potential for streaking you might get painting on liquid colors.
The dry dusts make it easy to get soft and natural looking gradations to your coloring.
Chef Mitchie used edible lacquer spray to seal color onto chocolate. Then she finished off her project with some edible sand.
These seashells are great for sumptuous table centerpieces as well as individual party favors.
