Life - If There's No Chocolate in Heaven I'm Not Going12:47:00 pm
I always love recieving chocolate at Christmas but I would be over the moon to recieve chocolates that have been homemade. Thats why I have decided to write this post, how I turned a simple bar a chocolate into lovely homemade treats. This is super simple to do so not a very technical cooking but is great fun and can also be done with children.
This is not the usual post from me, Iv never wrote about any cooking or home baking on my blog before but its something I enjoy and might start to post more regularly about in the future. I hope you enjoy this post I would love your opinions good or bad.
What you Need
Bowl - for melting chocolate
Pan - to boil water to melt chocolate
Silicone Chocolate Mould - £1.99 Lidl
Hazelnuts - £1.29 Sainsbury's
Pink Sparkles - £1.20 Sainsbury's
Assorted Chocolate 17p - 35p Lidl
First of all crush a few hazelnuts, with a wooden spoon, into tiny pieces. Add these tiny pieces to some of the hearts in the silicone mould.
Also add some of the pink sugar sparkles to some of the hearts in the mould.
Your mould will now look like this, I have left some hearts empty so the chocolate will be non nutty and sparkly.
Now break the Milk Chocolate into the bowl and place over a pan of boiling water. Keep the water on a low heat and stir the chocolate until melted. This should only take 2-3 minutes.
Pour the melted milk chocolate into the mould over the nuts and over some of the sparkles. Place these in the fridge for now. I only half filled some of the hearts as I will add different chocolate to these to give a layered effect.
Now melt the white chocolate in the same way. Remove the mould from the fridge and add the white chocolate and fill the mould. I also added some whole hazelnuts to the middle of a couple of the chocolates.
Place in the fridge for 2-3 hours so they can set, once set just pop them out of the mould, the silicone makes this very simple as it just peels away from the chocolate.
To make these into presents for stockings I would add 6 to a small clear bag, add some ribbon to tie the bag and they will look good to go.
I hope you enjoy this post
Lots of Love
