Melt white candy melts (from craft store) as per the directions. Spoon a small amount onto some wax paper or Sil-Pat Mat forming a circle. Dip a cleaned & dried & blown up latex baloon (the pear shaped kind) about 1/3-1/2 down into melted chocolate. Place onto the chocolate stand, let dry completely (the just time is trial & ere). Carefully with edible markers make a face. Nice to serve pudding, ice cream or moose in.
