These cookie cutter chocolates are a great activity to do with kids! Melted chocolate is poured into cookie cutter molds and topped with all sorts of fun toppings!
Grease each cookie cutter. Spray cooking spray onto a paper towel, and rub along the inside of each cutter.
Line a large baking sheet, or two regular sized baking sheets, with parchment paper. Place cookie cutters on parchment paper. Make sure to choose cookie cutters that have a relatively flat bottom. If it's too lopsided or bent out of shape, chocolate can leak out from the sides.
Prepare all of your toppings, and place them in small bowls around the baking sheets, so you have easy access to them all.
Place the chocolate, chopped in pieces, in a microwave safe/double boiler safe bowl. Melt the chocolate over a double boiler, or in the microwave in thirty second increments, stirring well after each, until melted.
When the chocolate is melted, pour about an ounce of chocolate into each cookie cutter, while holding the cookie cutter steady with the other hand. If the chocolate doesn't spread into all the corners, use a spoon to spread the chocolate out.
Immediately start topping the chocolate with the different toppings. Gently press the toppings into the chocolate to make sure it sticks.
Allow chocolate to cool and harden. You may want to place it in the fridge to help it harden quicker. Once completely hardened, gently press the chocolate around the edges and pop out of the cutter. If it doesn't come out easily, try warming the sides up with your hands, to slightly melt the chocolate.
Store in a cool place, or in the fridge in a sealed container.
The number of cookie cutters your chocolate will fill will depend on their sizes.
I advise against using cutters with lots of small angles or sharp corners, as they don't come out of the molds as easily, and may break apart.
You can easily change the amount of chocolate you use, depending on how much you want to make.
