I whipped up a quick batch of choccies for Steve to celebrate our 9th wedding anniversary today 💖
I have recipes where I make chocolate from scratch but I was short for time and this is a quick and simple version that is yummy (and eco friendly too without the wrapping 💚🎁).
This mixture fills one silicone 'heart' shaped ice cube tray.
- 140 gram chocolate buttons (I use 72% vegan chocolate)
- optional: slivered almonds
Over a double boiler (or using short bursts in the microwave) gently melt the chocolate buttons in a heat proof bowl.
** I use a Pyrex glass jug so I can pour the mixture easily into the moulds once it has melted.
- Whilst the chocolate is melting, add a few slivered almonds to each silicone mould.
- Once the chocolate has melted, pour it into the tray of silicone moulds and place in the fridge to set for 2-4 hours.
