Chocolate Food Art Starry Night

This might be the yummiest painting ever! Edible chocolate paint in cute homemade silver paint tubes. Plus a solid chocolate palette and thin white chocolate paper. What masterpieces will your guests create and then eat?

After I posted the chocolate pencils recipe recently, I asked what artwork you would most like to see in chocolate. Amazingly, over 200 people requested ‘Starry Night’ by Van Gogh. While it looked deceptively simple at first, I quickly realised just how many brush strokes and beautiful colours went into this famous painting. Make sure you watch it being painted in time-lapse at the end of the video.

  1. How long do the paints last and how do you store them? (i.e. Fridge etc)
