Love + Chocolate

All you need is love and chocolate.

Chocolate dessert, chocolate candy, chocolate chocolate chocolate! We all love some kind of chocolate from time to time, and so does the world on Valentine’s day! So here’s a little something special you can share with your loved ones today.

For these cute home made edible chocolates, all you need is chocolate and a filling of your choice. I used fresh strawberries for the white chocolate and salted caramel sauce  for the dark chocolate treats.

 Ingredients:

2 Large blocks of dark cooking chocolate
2 Large blocks of  white cooking chocolate
3 Fresh Strawberries (Thinly sliced)
1 1/2 Tbsp Caramel Sauce
Silicon Chocolate Moulds

Each tray makes 15 chocolates which is about 1 cup of melted chocolate (for both the white and dark)

Method:

Start by chopping up the chocolate into smaller pieces, place into a small bowl then melt in the microwave for a maximum of 2 minuets, while stirring every 30 secs.  Once the chocolate is fully melted and smooth, use a teaspoon to fill the chocolate moulds half way up. Let the first layer cool for about a minuet then add your chopped fruit or caramel filling and set in the fridge for a further minuet.

While the chocolate sets in the fridge, melt the dark chocolate for the top layer, then pour it over the strawberries. Finally put the chocolate filled moulds in the fridge to set for at least 15-minuets or overnight. If there’s any left over melted chocolate you know what to do with it. Once the chocolate is fully set, pop them out of the moulds and store in cute jars to give your loved ones.

 

Tip: Try not to eat all the chocolate while making these or you won’t have any left to give out 😀

Happy Valentines!
