This Week me and my son decided to get creative in the kitchen and make these fabulous chocolate hearts ready for Valentines day.
Homemade Chocolate Hearts make the perfect gift – whether as a romantic gesture or a show of affection for anyone who you love.
We start collecting the weekly magazine called ‘Something Sweet’, with issue1 which was 99p and can still be found in some shops, you got this great heart shaped mould to make these chocolates. Don’t worry if you missed it, they are plenty of chocolate moulds around in the shops for Valentines day, you may even have one lying around from last year!
Ingredients to make the Homemade Chocolate Hearts
300g Chocolate (white, dark or milk)
Gift box to present them in
Heart shaped mould
How to make the Chocolate hearts
Break the chocolate into chunks into a mixing bowl and perch it on top of a saucepan that’s half filled with water. The base of the bowl should not touch the water, as this would heat up the chocolate too quickly. Bring the water to a gentle simmer and don’t let it boil.
Once the chocolate is melted, pour the chocolate into the heart shaped mould, this part got very messy in our house! It’s lots of fun and licking the bowl or spoon is our favourite part
Transfer the finished mould to set in a cool, dry place to set for approximately 1 to 2 hours.
Once the chocolates have set remove them carefully from the mould and decorate with foils if desired!
