double boiler or microwave and microwave safe bowl
Non-stick cooking spray
white paper strip to write a message on
Melt the chocolate in a double boiler or in the microwave. Watch it carefully, and stir it occasionally.
Put some tin foil over the small end of the funnel, closing it off. Spray a little non-stick spray into the funnel. Place the funnel into the coffee mug to hold it upright
Pour the melted chocolate in, and put into the freezer for about 45 minutes to harden.
Take a strip of white paper and write your Valentines message on it
Remove the chocolate from the funnel, and wrap it in tin foil, tucking the message in near the point. Leave some of the message sticking out.
This project can also be made using 'Rice Crispie Treats' (rice cereal and marshmallow, recipe is on the box). Spray some non-stick cooking spray into the funnel, then press the rice/marshmallow mixture into it. Once it is firm, you can give it an optional coat of melted chocolate, and wrap with foil.
