This original topic was just about chocolate, but we've expanded it to include other ideas for using candies as an art medium. For more FOOD related lesson projects, look for lessons and ideas in the Bible Lesson Forums, or here in the general "Cooking Workshop" forums.

I was inspired today while watching the Food Network. They showed famous paintings that had been copied using melted chocolate instead of paint. They didn't share the technique, but I assume you could color white chocolate for the colors needed. I thought it might be especially useful during Easter since many kids get chocolate bunnies, and there are lots of great works of art to show the kids for inspiration, but I'm sure the idea cold be applied to other lessons. I'm going to experiment with how long the chocolate stays melted, and if adding corn syrup might help to make it more like paint. I'm also wondering if the bakery will sell that edible paper they use on photo cakes and how expensive it is. I'll keep you posted on the results!
