The Forky Park Recipe From Disney Family Is Perfect For Weekend Family Bonding
In Toy Story 4, Bonnie made Forky to help her cope with her first day of kindergarten. Today, we’re bringing you a special recipe compliments of the culinary minds over at Disney Family so that Forky can help you with your social distancing.
Best of all, this recipe is fun, creative and easy to make even for little helpers. It also uses a lot of miscellaneous items we’re hoping you have around the house.
So roll up your sleeves and let’s get cooking:
Forky Bark Recipe
Ingredients: Here’s what you’ll need to make this Forky-inspired confectionary treat come to life.
- Thin, red liquorice lace
- Medium-size candy eyes
- Small candy eyes
- Blue chewy candies
- Thick, red liquorice laces
- Vanilla taffy
- Vanilla wafers
- Chewy candies, in rainbow colors
- 16 oz. white chocolate or melts
Step 1: Let’s start by creating Forky’s rosy cheeks! Use an edible red marker to draw 2 spots on the backside of each spork. Smudge the spots with a cotton swab to give him that blushing glow!
Step 2: Now let’s give Forky some character by creating his eyebrows. Cut out three 1-inch segments of thin, red liquorice lace. Bend and pinch the pieces s to create arches that resemble Forky’s eyebrow.
Step 3: Next Up, let’s give Forky some eyes. You can use small and medium candies and a black food marker to create this look. If you want to make him wide-eyed, just make the dots in the center bigger!
Step 4: Let’s give Forky a big friendly grin! Use blue chewy candy and roll it into a thin strip. Shape the strip into Forky’s mouth!
Step 5: Now its time to give Forky a hand (literally!) You can make his arms and hands using 6-inch pieces of red liquorice. His fingers can be made by making three-inch loops at the end of your piece. Be sure to pinch the loops into the base so they’ll stay put!
Step 6:You can make a base for Forky by cutting a piece of white taffy in half and shaping each piece into a rough triangle.
Step 7: A great way to make Forky’s feet (signed by Bonnie of course) is to take a vanilla wafer and cut out the center portion for each foot. You can use the green food marker to write “Bon” on one foot and “nie” on the other.
Step 8: Next you can brighten up your Fork Bark by creating some adorable little rainbows. Take your favorite multi-colored chewy candies and role them into an oval. Stack the ovals with the red on the bottom and use a knife to cut through the strips of stacked candy. You can then cutomize these into mini rainbows for your candy treats!
Step 9: Last, but not least, you can gently melt the white chocolate and spread in a thick layer over a 9 x 13 inch sheet pan that is covered with crumpled parchment paper.
Step 10: Carefully place all of your little Forky elements and other colorful accents and let the chocolate harden completely. Then break or cut into pieces and enjoy!
