stuck in the moustache.

We decided to indulge our sweet tooth and our imaginations and whip up these little ditties.
I've seen a chocolate moustache mold around, but decided to expand on the idea a little bit-- "How can I make this idea better?!" I always ask myself.
The flexibility to choose your own moustache style! Because, we all know that every moustache is as different and interesting as their wearer.
I know you are dying to make your own-- I'll divulge my most secret chocolate moustache recipe that even Willy Wonka would be jealous of.
Here is the recipe-- just good ol' melting chocolate bark. (I used the Wilton brand--)
That's it. Melt it down in the microwave, and pop it into a large ziploc freezer bag.
Cut the tip a teeny-tiny bit so you can pipe it onto a plastic wrap covered cookie sheet.

Just make your outline and fill it in! If you use real chocolate, you might have to refrigerate your moustaches-- but if you use the chocolate bark like I did, just a little time on the counter top will be sufficient for hardening.

Here we have the Einstein... all we need is the white frizzy hair.You can't talk moustaches with out the trucker special somehow worming his way in there.
The connoisseur has a special place in my heart. This one is curly and wild.
The abra cadabra is just as magical as it sounds-- and if you're lucky, a little will rub off under your nose, perfect for licking.
See, even you can make the perfect chocolate moustache with a few simple ingredients and some creativity. In no time you will have the perfect moustaches to share with friends!

This is the cutest thing ever! The pictures are so great too :) Emily, Thanks for the encouraging words on the job hunt. It is a different feeling, but we are being blessed and I am waiting patiently for things to turn around. I've been slow on blogging these days, but hope to do more of it again. Time has taken other priorities. Thanks for doing your blog. It always brings a smile to my face. Also, how do you get your pictures so big? I have been trying to figure that out for awhile

Emily, I just found your blog (not sure how lol). I'm all the way down in Brazil (I lived in the US for a few years and my husband is American)!
I'm completely in love with your blog! It made my day. Love the pictures, the recipes, the way you describe things! It is all so tasteful!
My little girl is only 19 months but I already got some ideas from your blog to have lots of fun with her! And help my husband miss the US a little less with some of recipes!:)
Thank you for doing this!

This is brilliant! We (my kids and I) are SO going to make these soon! You could use white chocolate and make a Santa Claus-inspired beard, or a bunch of other stuff!!!
