Surprise Pencils

1 large pencil mould 250g milk chocolate Pink and White marshmallows
Bulldog clips
Mini Astros
Cellophane for packaging
Thin strips of pastel ribbons

Cut your mould so that the half pencils are separate. Cut out each pencil shape with a 1cm border around the edge. Cut out the bottom of each pencil and then clip both sides of the pencil together with bulldog clips to get a full pencil. Stand the pencil upright in a mug or jar - with the cut out bottom of the pencil facing up (facing you). Melt your chocolate very gently either in a double boiler or in the microwave. Now pour your chocolate into the pencils and fill them to the top. Leave the chocolate to cool. When the chocolate has cooled enough you will see that it has set around the edges of the pencils. When that border around the edges is about 2mm thick you can empty the rest of the chocolate back into the pot. This will leave you with hollow chocolate-coated pencils. Now place the moulds into the freezer for about three - five minutes to set. Once set, you can fill the pencils with mini Astros. With a pair of scissors cut a marshmallow to fit into the end of the pencil as a plug. Dip the marshmallow into melted chocolate and then insert it into the end of the pencil. Leave to set. Then gently remove the bulldog clips and the pencil from the mould. Wrap the pencil neatly in a piece of clear cellophane. These pencils are wonderful party gifts for your children's birthdays.
