  • Hostess Twinkies Snack Cakes
  • Wilton Candy Eyeballs
  • Black frosting
  • Frosting (or use Nutella, peanut butter)
  • Modeling Chocolate IngredientsWhite and Milk Chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup light corn syrup (add more if needed)


  1. Begin by preparing your modeling chocolate (recipe below). While the chocolate is cooling unwrap your Twinkies. Once the chocolate is cooled you have a nice chocolate clay to work with.
  2. Roll out black and white modeling chocolate to about 1/16″ thickness.
  3. Using a sharp knife gently cut the wings from your white modeling chocolate. Once cut to desired shape, place them into the fridge for about 10 minutes to allow them to harden.
  4. Cut strips about 1 1/2″ long from the brown and roll them with your hands to make thin logs. Curl up one end to make antennae. Once you have reached your desired shape place them into the fridge for about 10 minutes to allow them to harden.
  5. While the wings and antennae are hardening, use a knife or Pastry Wheel to cut 1/2″ wide by 5″- 6″ long strips from the brown. You will need approx. 3 strips per bee.
  6. Gently shape these around your bee to make the stripes of the bee as pictured. Cut off excess at the bottoms as needed.
  7. To finish decorating your bees, use a dab of frosting to attach the wings and eyes. Use a toothpick to poke two holes in between the eyes and the first stripe. Then stick an antennae in each hole. Paint on a black frosting smile.
  8. Modeling Chocolate DirectionsMelt chocolate in small saucepan or in the microwave using 30 second intervals.
  9. Allow the chocolate to cool to about 91 degrees, stirring often. If you don’t have a Candy Thermometer, test the temperature of the melted chocolate by putting a drop on your finger. It should feel cool. If it’s hot, let it cool longer.
  10. Pour in corn syrup.
  11. Stir slowly until well mixed. This chocolate mixture will become thick very quickly, so be sure to scrape the bottom of the bowl to incorporate all of the melted chocolate.
  12. Pour mixture out onto a flat surface, using powdered sugar if needed to help shape the dough
  13. Knead until glossy and smooth. If your hands are warm us a Dough Scraper to knead the modeling chocolate.
  14. Wrap the modeling chocolate in plastic wrap and place in a zip top bag or airtight container.

The first step for your Honey Bee Mine cakes is to prepare the modeling chocolate. You can use a double boiler or simply microwave the chocolate using 30-second intervals and stirring between each interval.

Once the chocolate is melted and cooled to the right temperature (approx 91 degrees), pour in the corn syrup. The mixture will become thick quickly so be sure to stir and scrape the bottom of the bowl to incorporate all of the chocolate.

Pour the mixture onto a flat surface to begin kneading and shaping the dough. Use a dough scraper if your hands are too warm. Flatten into a disk, wrap in plastic wrap, and place in the refrigerator until you are ready to use.
