I've got stars in my eyes!  I have been looking forward to making ocean-themed candy ever since I saw a display of white chocolate shells in the local market last year.  I tracked down a cake and candy supply store while I was in Florida last year, bought several different chocolate molds and had my first success this week.  Peanut Butter Starfish!

I felt like a genius when I realized that the Wilton peanut butter candy melts would be the perfect color to make realistic starfish!  I just had to melt the discs in the microwave, pour them into the molds and wait for them to set in the freezer.  Voila!  They are perfect, if I do say so myself.

I think Jacques Cousteau would be proud.
