Make This: Edible Confetti DIY


Today is my birthday (I’m officially 29) and it didn’t seem right to let a b-day go by without some yummy sweets to share. That’s the best part of birthdays anyway, right? So I’m branching out, just a little today, with a sweet food related DIY that I hope you’ll enjoy. Learn how to make edible confetti with store-bought chocolate in two easy steps. You can use it for parties, cake & cupcake decorating, and whatever else you can dream up.

Supplies: chocolate bars – I used milk chocolate and cookies and cream // tiny cookie cutters (like these or these)

How-To: Unwrap chocolate bars and let them lay out at room temperature for a few minutes to soften them up a little bit. Push cookie cutter through the chocolate, all the way, and punch the cut chocolate out of the cutter with your finger or a toothpick. Sprinkle or cakes, plates, etc. That’s it. Couldn’t be any easier.







These would be so fun at a kid’s birthday party. You could sprinkle some edible confetti on the cake and cake table, on top of kid’s plates, etc. Note: If you’re looking for a healthier option, you can use fruit leather instead of chocolate. Works great.
