Zoo Chocopops

Heading down to the mothership today for Halloween festivities at Yaboo! where I will get to see some of my co-workers kiddies all dressed up.  Thought I'd make a few kid friendly treats for the occasion.

Stacey's Zoo Chocopops Ingredients:
Guittard white chocolate couverture
Guittard milk chocolate couverture

Hardware:
Zoo mold
Lollipop sticks
Chopstick

First I tempered the milk chocolate.  For some reason I've found that if you go dark to light when applying chocolate, it will remain tempered but if you try and go light to dark (i.e. put white chocolate down first, then put dark chocolate on top of it), the lighter chocolate will become untempered and will have fat bloom.  In any case... I used the chopstick to apply milk chocolate for a giraffe's spots and a lion's mane.  Then I used all milk chocolate for a monkey and an elephant (applying the sticks to these).  Once I poured in the white chocolate to the giraffe and lion, I put the sticks there too.  I jiggled the mold as I was filling to make sure there were no air bubbles.

Once everything had dried and cooled overnight (you really only need a few hours), I inverted the molds.


The lion is my favorite. :) Rowr!
