How-To: Skull Truffles with Custom Mold and Walnut Brains

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.

I'm a word nerd who loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon. I was an editor on the first 40 volumes of MAKE, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. In particular, covering art is my passion — after all, art is the first thing most of us ever made. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for untouched powder fields and ideal alpine lakes.
