Edible (Chocolate) Art Party

There is nothing more fun than art. Wait, I take it back, there is. EDIBLE art is better than plain old art. And what’s better than chocolate?!

Edible Art for Kids

My homemade version is the “healthier” chocolate. I wouldn’t say total health food per se because kids and chocolate still are something that, when combined, often equal total excited, messy, craziness. But it’s better than any processed or store-bought version. (Wink.)

So, I’m not only sharing my recipe with you today, but also my family photos—taken a year and a half ago—of us making chocolate art and freezing it until hardened. The result was better than any shrink plastic arts and crafts—no toxic odors when baking and no questionable plastic. We had edible funky chocolate chips, chocolate hearts, chocolate letters, and more.

Let your imagination run wild!

All you need is a pan, the ingredients, waxed paper, and a frosting/decorating bag.

RECIPE:

Ingredients

  • 1 cup raw cacao powder
  • 1/4 cup + 2 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup organic raw honey
  • 1 tsp organic almond extract (alcohol free)

Directions

In a pan on the stove, I warmed the oil until clear. On low, I added the honey, chocolate, and extract. I mixed it together until thick and smooth and homogenous.

Then, I put the mixture into a frosting/decorating bag.

The kids had a blast squeezing their designs on the waxed paper.

I put everything in the freezer for at least 20 minutes before eating (it becomes hard like candy).

That’s it—easy, fun, and TASTES so good (oh, and it’s not bad for you either).

Enjoy!
