Valentines Day is just around the corner. If you are still stumped on what to give your other half (or even yourself!) and fed up of buying over priced boxes of chocolates, then why not make your own chocolates this Valentines Day?
If you are a chocolate lover, Valentines Day is probably your favourite day of the year, because it is the one day where it is 100% acceptable to eat chocolate everything, all day. Whether you’re making them for a significant other, a group of friends, or just yourself, these chocolates deserve to be eaten. So go wild.
Homemade chocolates are a great gift because they are thoughtful, take only minutes to make and they are cheap.
What You Will Need:
- 1 big bar of dairy free/dark chocolate (whichever you prefer)
- Various fillings of your choice – I used desiccated coconut, chopped hazelnuts and honeycomb (recipe will be included)
- Fry Light (or similar)
- An ice cube tray
What To Do:
- Break the chocolate into small pieces.
- Melt the chocolate in the microwave in a microwave safe bowl/jug.
- Spray a tiny amount of Fry Light into the ice cube tray to line it.
- Fill the individual slots 1/3 full with the chocolate. Then tilt the tray in order to coat the sides of the individual slot with chocolate.
- Place in the freezer for 1-2 minutes.
- Add your toppings. Choose any that suit you. You can go as wild or as simple as you like.
- Cover the toppings with the rest of the melted chocolate, to fill the individual slots.
- Place in the freezer for 1 hour.
- Remove from the freezer and turn the tray upside down to remove the chocolates from the tray.
If you try these, let me know how they went and what you filled your chocolates with!
Have a happy Valentines Day!
Peace & Love, Sian
