Easy Homemade Chocolates


With Valentine's Day and Mother's Day just around the corner, I'm going to share my super easy homemade chocolate recipe. It can also be plastic-free and vegan depending on the ingredients you choose. For not much effort you can create a lovely handmade gift, and who doesn't love an edible present?

You will need a silicone mold tray to make them in, I've had mine years and I think I purchased it in a home store.



SALTED CARAMEL CUPS

Dark chocolate

Dates

Salt

Silicone Mold


METHOD

1. Soak the dates in hot water for 1 hour.

2. Melt the chocolate and fill the mold 1/3 with melted chocolate and place it in the fridge until solid.

3. Drain the dates and blend with a pinch of salt and a dash of water or oat milk until smooth in consistency.

4. Fill the mold to 2/3 with the date mixture and freeze for 30 mins.

5. Fill the mold to the top with melted chocolate and place it back in the fridge.

6. When the chocolate has solidified you should be able to pop the chocolates straight out of the mold.


Store them in the fridge between snacks!

* I didn't quite use enough chocolate when I made these, hence the rustic appearance. Make sure you cover the sides of the mold in chocolate to seal in all the filling.
