Transportation Shaped Candy in honor of St. Christopher

The following post was submitted by Erin Yerian. Thank you Erin!

St. Christopher’s feast day is no longer on the calendar, but can still be celebrated as a memorial on July 25. That is especially good to know if you have a child named Christopher or just about any 2 year old boy who loves transportation. St. Christopher is the patron saint of all kinds of transportation, thus inspiring this super simple dessert for his memorial day. I went with just a quick simple filling in of the candy mold so my son could help me, but as the candy mold wrap suggests, it could be done with much more detail. Cookie cut-outs could work too!

Melt chocolates or candy discs in microwave, 30 seconds at a time, stirring each time until melted (or according to package directions). Add a drop of flavoring (I used maple extract), pour into molds, and let set.

St. Christopher, holy patron of travellers, pray for us!
