These homemade love heart chocolates will make the perfect favours for your guests if your planning a wedding around Valentines Day this year. Not planning a wedding? Well why not give these choccies a go anyway and surprise your loved one this Valentines Day!? They are super easy to make and you can choose your ingredients based on your sweetheart’s fav treats!
What you need:
White, Milk & Dark Chocolate (I used Green&Blacks)
Silicon Love Heart Chocolate Mould
Toppings of your choice (I used freeze dried raspberries, sparkly and love heart cake toppers. Chopped nuts, honeycomb and fudge would also be super yummy!)
Using a teaspoon, carefully spread a thin layer of each of your toppings into the bottom of you chocolate mould.
Take one of the bars of chocolate and break it into small pieces into a bowl. Pop the bowl in the microwave and set it to a medium setting. Blast the chocolate in 20-30 second bursts, taking it out and stirring in between. It’s really important to do this VERY slowly as it’s super easy to burn the chocolate and it will then just be grainy and unusable. Once the chocolate is mostly melted with a few lumps left, remove it from the microwave and stir until it’s all melted.
Using a teaspoon, slowly and carefully spoon the chocolate into the mould over your toppings.
Continue this process with each bar of chocolate so that you are left with a row of milk, white and dark chocolate hearts. Depending on the size of your mould, you may not need to melt the whole bar of chocolate. We used half a bar of chocolate for each row.
Pop your mould into the freezer making sure that it’s level. Leave it for about an hour and your chocolates should then be set. You can then carefully push the chocolates out of the mould. Some of the topping will probably come loose when you do this but don’t worry too much as you should still be left with a good layer on top of the chocolates.
You can now divide your choccies into your gift bags and attach your gift tags.
And it really is as simple as that. Both beautiful and yummy, these chocolatey beauties are sure to impress!
