Faux Chocolate Jar Topper

Save calories and gain creativity by making a Faux Chocolate Jar Topper from Candace Jedrowicz. Fake food crafts are a great way to try something new without using edible ingredients. This is an easy way to turn a plain mason jar into a delicious-looking craft.



  • Cool2Cast
  • Aleene’s Collage Pauge Matte
  • Aleene’s Super Thick Tacky Glue
  • An insert from a chocolate box – I used one from a Mrs Fields candy box
  • Water
  • Scoop
  • Quart plastic bag
  • Brown acrylic paint
  • Candy paper cup
  • Decorative paper
  • Drill with 1/16″ bit
  • Focal bead
  • Headpin


  1. To mix the Cool2Cast, scoop 2 parts Cool2Cast to 1 part water into the quart bag.  Seal the bag and shake and smoosh the bag until all the lumps are gone and the mixture is smooth.
  2. Cut a small bottom corner of the bag and fill the mold(s).  Allow the Cool2Cast to set for an hour, carefully unmold and allow to dry overnight.
  3. Sand off any unwanted lumps and paint with chocolate brown paint.  Allow to dry and repeat if necessary.
  4. Glue the chocolate in the paper candy cup.
  5. Holding the chocolate by the bottom, paint the chocolate with the Collage Pauge and allow to dry.
  6. Cut a circle of the decorative paper and glue to the top of the lid.  Allow to dry.
  7. Drill a hole in the center top of the chocolate.
  8. Slide the focal bead on the headpin, dip the end in glue and insert into the hole.  Allow to dry.
  9. Glue the chocolate to the lid.
