Did you hear about the chocolate letters hack? I had no idea what it was until my mom told me about it at my birthday party. Her inspiration came from chocolate covered strawberries with letters, and she decided to apply that to cupcakes in a unique way.
Initially, she debated whether to do chocolate initial letters or spell out my full name, but it turned out to be less complicated than she anticipated. My mother is so creative. If you want some cool hacks by Janet, check out how she turned a cantaloupe into Mr. Potato head, her tie-dye spinach dip, and this swamp water drink! So cool, right?
How to Make Chocolate Letters
Easy as pie, my mom made cupcakes from a box mix. Then, having cooled the cupcakes, she applied store-bought icing since she was in a hurry and just wanted to do something fast.
During this time, she melted chocolate in 30-second increments in the microwave.
I highly recommend the candy melts Janet used; it wasn’t difficult for her to work with, and you can order it here!
After the chocolate had melted, Janet placed the chocolate in a piping bag.
With the chocolate, she spelled out my name Cassie on parchment paper.
Place the chocolate in the refrigerator for 20 minutes to harden.
It’s easy to peel off the parchment paper and then stick it into the icing on top of the cupcakes. It’s a fun idea that is so easy to do.
You finish with some sprinkles for added decoration, and you’re done! Finally, you have a beautifully decorated chocolate letter cupcake!
