I’m sure that you have asked yourself this question at some point…how many cool things can I make with chocolate-covered almonds? Or more specifically, how can I make cupcake decorations and toppers for cupcakes with delicious chocolate coated almonds? I know that I recently pondered that profound question. And yes, please feel free to ask…why did I ask myself that question? Maybe you have already guessed the answer, particularly if you have a child in school who at some point has suddenly brought a rather large cardboard box (with a nice handle) full of smaller boxes of chocolate-covered almonds and has announced that they must all be sold as an important school fundraiser.
Yes, we have chocolate covered almonds for sale! I’m afraid that last time we went through this, we bought the whole box and ate them all. For sure I don’t want to do that again, so I started looking around for ideas to use these candies….as decorations on cupcakes. Surely there are many other ways to use them, but I’m only interested in bakedy bake baking stuff right now….so I checked around. And I made a list. Yes, I am weird that way. And one day baked the cupcakes, and finally finally got around to testing out all the fun ideas. All 13 of them!
I wanted you to have some cute ideas, so that you’ll buy chocolate almonds from us and we’ll get rid of the whole boxful. Or better yet, order some cupcakes from me, and I’ll make sure that they have some chocolate almond toppers!!
And there you have some ideas for having fun with chocolate covered almonds. I had fun yesterday, can you tell??
Some of my favorites…If you would like the how-to for any topper, just let me know. They were all made with chocolate covered almonds, some had chocolate chips on them and some had nonpareils (for eye pupils). They were all put together with candy melts, or melted chocolate. Pretty easy!! About half of them, like the mouse and the choco cat, were my own brainwaves…oh, and the ugly moose…he needs some work! Below I listed the ideas I saw as photos pinned on Pinterest. You can find the pin or blog link that I found each idea at by clicking on the highlighted words (none of them have instructions FYI):
bees, there are some really cute ideas on this blog
penguins, there are a lot of pins for these penguins, but I found the blog source! there are a lot of other great ideas here too.
