Pilgrim Chocolate Sucker Recipe

These Pilgrim suckers make great table favors.  Put a personalised label on the back with something you are grateful for. I like to package them in a cello bag and use colorful fall ribbon to tie them closed.
The recipe below is from the Autumn chapter of my book Chocolates By Imagination Fall and Winter. Enjoy!

2 cups white coatings      1 girl pilgrim mold

    2 cups milk coatings   1 boy pilgrim mold

¼ cup dark coatings       12 six inch paper sticks
12 three inch cello bags

and holiday ribbon
Melt the white and milk coatings together in a large microwave safe bowl as on page 20. Stir well. You should have a tan color of coatings. Using a spoon, fill the pilgrim favors with the tan coatings, being careful not to overfill. Tap the mold on the counter to remove air bubbles and level the coatings. Place a six inch paper stick into each favor making sure the stick is at least two inches into the coatings. Roll the stick with your finger so the top portion is covered with coatings. Refrigerate 15 to 20 minutes or until the pilgrims release easily from mold. Repeat until you have the desired number of favors.
Melt the dark coatings in a small microwave safe bowl on 50% power for 30 seconds. Stir. Repeat until melted. Using a medium skewer apply the dark coatings for the eyes. Let dry completely. Package with a cello bag and holiday ribbon.
