Recipe - Valentines Day Home-Made Chocolates
Did you know you can make delicious chocolates at home with just an ice-cube tray…?!
This is a really simple and fun way to make a thoughtful home-made Valentine's Day gift for a friend, partner, kiddies or teacher.
Pack them up in a cute box and tie with heart ribbon, to finish the gift off perfectly.
Here are the steps
Grab a silicone ice-cube tray. We used a heart shaped one, but there are lots of fun shapes available.
Melt your chocolate - we use good quality like Whittakers Dark Chocolate. Put around teaspoon of chocolate in each cube-hole, and use the spoon to spread up the sides (make sure there are no holes), then chill in the fridge until set.
Once chilled, fill each shell with a filling of your (or your valentines!) choice - don't fill right to the top. Try Nutella, peanut butter, raspberry jam, or peppermint creme (just mix icing sugar, peppermint essence to taste and a drop or two of water, to make a smooth consistency).
Top with more melted chocolate over the filling, make sure it's all sealed without holes or bubbles. Bang the tray on the bench to smooth the top, and chill again.
Once they are fully set, pop your choccies out of the ice-cube tray (silicone makes this very easy!) and enjoy with your valentine!
Happy Valentine's Day! xo
