I was inspired by Hungry Happenings St Patricks Day cups to make these candy dishes for my St Patrick's Day table. I tried to improvise and make my own cups, but it didn't work too well. I think I should have tried using the inside of the cup, but it was a "pressed for time" day and I didn't have any cups the size that I needed.
So instead, I used the base of the soccer ball candy cup that I shared HERE. I used green chocolate melted wafers from Jo-Anns.
For the hat rim, I used the lid from this snack container that I got from Walmart. It was the perfect size and there weren't any dips or divets in the lid so it worked great.
Then I made some Modeling Chocolate using the directions at Hungry Happenings. I free handed a shamrock and a strip to wrap around the rim of the hat.
I think the next time I do this, I will make the rim strip a yellow color for some contrast, but I like how it turned out. I plan to fill these with pudding for dinner tomorrow for a fun treat.
I was thinking how fun it would be to do this in black chocolate and fill with yellow pudding so it looked like a pot of gold. Or how about filling it with Skittles candies so it looked like a rainbow? So many possibilities.
