DIY Race Day Food – Chocolate Race Cars
For some families it’s football, basketball, baseball, or maybe soccer, but for my family—it’s all about car racing.
Whether it’s Indycar, F1, NASCAR, or even MotoGP, racing has brought our family closer each other, and allowed us to visit awesome places, meet awesome people, and more importantly, create incredible memories. But when we’re not traveling to races, we’re at home watching them on TV, and that’s when yummy snacks come in handy…
Behold these cute and delicious chocolate race cars! They’ll make an incredible companion to your race day nachos, or whatever other dish you’re known for, but even better—they’ll be the talk of the party, and even city block!
With the season opener for many racing series around the corner, and the 100th running of the biggest spectacle in racing —the Indy 500, there are plenty of reasons to create these delicious little racers!
