White Chocolate Sugar Skulls

These white chocolate sugar skulls offer a more pleasing edible version of the traditional sugar skull. That’s because they are made from white chocolate. They look pretty and will make a nice addition to any Dia de Muertos festivity.


1 tray of mini-sugar skull molds
Measuring cup
1 bag of Wilton White Chocolate Melting Chips, or other brand (Available at craft stores or cake decorating stores)

Microwave safe mixing bowl
Mixing spoon or chopstick
Wax paper
Assorted tubes of Frosting Doodle or other mini-tubes of colored icing
Sugared flowers, edible glitter, candy sprinkles

Directions for White chocolate sugar skulls:

Put one cup of chips into the mixing bowl.

Microwave on high for 15 seconds. Remove and stir.

The chocolate melts only when you stir the mixture. It’s crucial to keep stirring, otherwise your pieces will scorch. Keep heating and stirring in 15- to 20-second intervals until the chips have melted to a creamy consistency. Spoon the mixture into the molds.

Using both hands, lift the tray about six inches and drop it to help the mixture settle and remove any bubbles. Let cool until firm. Flip the skulls onto a sheet of wax paper. Knead the tube of frosting until the contents are of an even consistency.

Decorate the skulls with the icing, sprinkles, etc. Wrap the finished skulls in small cellophane bags with ties and keep refrigerated.

Variations: Make multicolored skulls – the melting chocolate comes in hot pink, purple, red, green, yellow, brown, orange, blue and several other colors. Write the names of your friends on the foreheads of the skulls.
