Fireplace Candy Bar Craft

"Oh, the weather outside is frightful, but the fire is so delightful...especially when it's made of chocolate!!

Don't you love it when you can have your fire and eat it too?! Well, today you can as I make the last-i think-of my Kit Kat crafts.

Christmas just isn't Christmas without a fireplace, so how about a platter full? I think Santa would appreciate these on Christmas Eve with a nice, tall, cold glass of milk.
 To make my fireplace crafts, I used:
Full size Kit Kat bars
Fondant:black, white, and red
Decorator Icing Tubes:black, orange, and yellow
Decorator Icing Tips:Ateco #17, and a small round tip *not pictured
Stocking cutter-1 1/2 inch-I've had mine so long I don't remember where bought it, but this one looks very similar.
Fondant cutter-you can also use a sharp knife
Fondant roller *not pictured
These Wilton Santa Claus icing decorations are so cute, but I ended up not using them for this craft.
 We'll begin by cutting out out fondant pieces.
Roll out black fondant and cut out a 1 inch by 1 1/4 inch rectangle for each candy bar fireplace.
Ohh, let's make some adorable, tiny stockings!

Roll out red and white fondant. Cut out white stockings and then red stockings. Cut off just the top from the white stocking and attach it to red stocking with a dab of water.

I decorated my stockings with Christmas sprinkles and sparkling sugar.
 I piped black decorator icing with a small round tip for my "brick mortar".
This sweet little fire!

After attaching the black fondant piece to candy bar, tip #17 was perfect for piping the fire.
I piped the orange first and then topped that with the yellow.

It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas!
Let's hang those stockings by the chimney with care..with just a dab of frosting!
These roaring cozy!

Wishing you all a sweet and Merry Christmas!

Stay warm, Karen 😊
