This one isn't so much a recipe as a method- one I did not think of, mind you. This all came from the creative mind of the wonderful BF. We have some silicone fingertips- used for crafting and other little things that are hot and use your fingertips (hot glue, in the kitchen, etc.)- really quite handy for gripping things, etc.
The first time, the BF did not use cooking spray, and it still worked, but it was easier the second time when he did. Make sure to put enough chocolate on the inside of the finger mold so that it won't just crack on you, then pop it in the freezer to harden it up. Peel/slide off the silicone, then have fun with it! The BF used them to make a rock-on hand sign for a friend at work who had a birthday coming up, and the other one is a middle finger because that's where he cut himself pretty badly at work- like I said, we like baking, we're silly, and we get through things by laughing. These are pretty fun, and so was the process- so give it a shot, and take the idea and apply it to other things as well- I'm thinking of doing this with some mini silicone cupcake molds and making little chocolate cups and putting... I don't know what in them, but it can't be bad!

|Aren't these fun? Not too hard, and could come in handy (puns!) at some special times- I'm thinking of some great Halloween ideas- have fun with this!|
|The two hand-cupcakes, but I encourage you to have a laugh with us at these, and then go and do something fun and creative with this idea- make it your own!|
