Candy Bowls- Beachwood Camp

Candy Bowl

Candy Bowl

We had such a great week in cooking camp. The last thing we do to end camp every week is have ice cream. This year we made candy bowls to have our ice cream in. I got several bags of the melting disks used to make candy. They come is assorted colors and I got orchid and green. I melted them and the kids put some of each in styrofoam bowls and used a spoon to spread it  inside of the  bowls. We placed them in the freezer or fridge to harden. Once chilled the kids popped them out and had pretty bowls. Most wouldn’t eat them. They wanted to take them home to show their parents. We used to make the bowls by dipping balloons in melted chocolate, hardening them off and popping the balloons. After a few balloon exploding incidents we opted for the safer bowl method. We also had some mint candies to decorate the bowls. Here is what they made.
