Make: Projects Skull Truffles

Our favorite maker holiday, Halloween, is right around the corner, and Make: Projects community member Marc Brownlow shared his awesome Skull Truffles how-to with us just in time. In true maker spirit, just making the truffles wasn’t enough — he uses polymer clay to sculpt little skulls and then food-grade silicone to make the mold. The result? Tiny white chocolate skulls with bittersweet chocolate filling and walnut braaaains! You don’t have to be a zombie to appreciate these.

Goli Mohammadi

I’m senior editor at MAKE and have worked on MAKE magazine since the first issue. I’m a word nerd who particularly loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon as a whole. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for the ideal alpine lake or hunting for snow to feed my inner snowboard addict.

The maker movement provides me with endless inspiration, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. The specific beat I cover is art, and I’m a huge proponent of STEAM (as opposed to STEM). After all, the first thing most of us ever made was art.
