We are so excited that the Olympics are starting this week! Are you ready? We have a great edible craft project that will be perfect for watching your favorite Olympic events!! It takes just a few minutes to make and they are so much fun to eat. You can see someone had a little bite out of ours before photographing. Your kids will love making and eating their Olympic craft just as much as ours did.
We actually made these during the summer during my daughter's dance camp. It was gymnastics day and for their crafts they got to make these fun gold medals. I think this would also be a fantastic pirate party idea. You could make chocolate gold coins easily by not making a hole in the top of the chocolate.
You will need one bag of chocolate chips, Wilton's edible gold spray (you can find these at craft stores or at baking supply stores. (aOur local Joann's, Michaels and Hobby Lobby had it in stock).
You will also need a muffin tin (use mini muffin tins for smaller medals or regular sized muffin tins for larger medals) and straws. We recommend plastic straws.
You will also want some red, white and blue (or whatever country you are from) colored ribbon to loop it through the medal.
