It won’t be long before we are knee deep in the traditions and events of  the holidays.  And as a maker, this means lots of opportunities for you to let your creativity and skills loose on special projects and making gifts for family and friends.

With chocolate sand casting, you can create edible items molded in unique shapes – shapes as varied and far out as your imagination will go.

In this project we’re going to follow the steps of sandcasting – molding metal objects by pouring molten metal into a mold made out of sand.  But since sand and molten metal are a little hard to digest, we’ll make chocolate objects using molds created with brown sugar.
