Pimp My Snack Cock


In a flash of Easter-inspired experimentation, I had a go at casting a cock out of chocolate. I think it worked pretty well. And I had a lot of fun eating it. Hehe.

Anyway, I'm a lady who likes to share, so here's how. You wouldn't get this kind of quality instructional entertainment on Blue Peter.

CREATING A CHOCOLATE COCK


You will need to make a cardboard support for the mould. An easy way to get the basic shape is to use a water-based pen (or anything washable) to outline the rim of the mould before pressing down onto sturdy cardboard.


Cut out the shape, trimming for a snug fit. Wash the mould thoroughly and dry well (especially inside) before inserting into the hole. Use a deep jug or similar vessel to rest the cardboard on.


Slowly melt the chocolate in a bowl over hot water.When melted and smooth, allow to cool (as much as possible without it setting) before spooning intomould. Squeeze the mould to ensure even filling.


Squeeze the mould gently to remove any air bubbles. Level off the surface with the edge of a knife and wipe the edges clean with a damp cloth or moist kitchen roll.

Place the filled mould in the refrigerator for as long as possible (preferably overnight).When fully set, gently peel back the mould. Wash the mould and dust with cornflour to protect it.

ENJOY!
