Materials

Heavy paper
Parchment paper

Method
Clear some space in your freezer to put in folded letter or A4 size card stock.
Fold a heavy piece of letter or A4 paper in half.
Cut a piece of parchment paper and place over the piece of paper.

Place a handful of chocolate chips into a Ziploc bag. Put hot tap water in a bowl and place the bag of chocolate chips in it. When the chocolate is melted, squeeze it down to one corner of the bag and cut a small hole in the tip.

The waxier,cheaper chocolate chips will hold their form better.

We found it easier to work with small amounts of chocolate as large amounts will harden. If your chocolate does harden, simply replace the water and set the bag into the hot water again. You will need to ensure the cut tip is clear of chocolate.
Squeeze chocolate in a butterfly pattern on the parchment paper. Use the fold as the center line and try to make the wings symmetrical. Make sure the swirls are connected so that the butterfly will stay together.

Try your hand at dragonflies too!

Allow to set briefly and then fold the cardstock up to lift the butterfly wings.
Position your butterflies in the freezer so that the cardstock and butterfly wings stay in position. We used other frozen stuff to prop them up.
Allow to set in the freezer for approximately 15 minutes
Remove from the freezer and peel away the parchment paper. If it does not fall away easily, place them back in the freezer.
Set onto your cupcakes or cake to complete your decorating!

It takes about 30 minutes, including prep, to make 10 butterflies. The limiting factor to how many you make will be the amount of space you can create in your freezer!
