Ok…so this sounds mushy at the very best..but I did make some Chocolates for my hubby this Valentine’s 💓😍 lol! And he found them cute too 💃🏻
Well…to be honest…I wouldn’t really call it ‘making’ them…unless that’s what we are calling using ‘leftovers’ these days 😁😜
Why leftovers you may ask….well. I had some odd, broken pieces of Morde’s white Compound in my refrigerator post icing my Eggless Red Velvet Cupcakes. Also had some coloured sugar sprinkles lying around…so thought of using these along with my silicon chocolate moulds to make something quick! 😬😬…hence these Treats😊 Let’s get started….these take approx 30 mins to get ready …actually ready to eat!! Cool..ain’t it!?
A few pointers to keep in mind…
Do not try to melt the Compound Chocolate in the microwave…it could burn it as the chocolate is very delicate. Use a double boiler as far as possible.
Do not stir the the chunks of Compound Chocolate while it melts…that can make the melted chocolate very grainy.
Yield: 7-10 pieces
Equipment: a deep saucepan, a heat proof bowl (preferably borosil/ Pyrex), measuring cups/ spoons, silicon Chocolate moulds in any shape.
1/2 cup chopped Morde White Compound
sugar sprinkles or sugar balls as needed
Heat water in the saucepan until it starts to boil, then place the heatproof bowl over the saucepan in such a way that the base of the bowl does not touch the boiling water below in the pan. Next, keep the chopped compound chocolate in the bowl and maintain the flame on it’s lowest possible level. Let the compound melt slowly and do not stir it.
While the compound melts, place the sugar balls/ sprinkles in the chocolate moulds, just a thin layer covering the base only.
Next, check the compound chocolate that is melting, it should be almost melted by now. Remove the bowl from the top of the saucepan. Stir the melted compound chocolate just once. It must be smooth and lump free.
Next, add 1-2 tsp of the melted compound chocolate over the sprinkles placed in the moulds. Fill the moulds to the top. Do the same for all the moulds and place them on a tray. Place this tray in refrigerator or the freezer for about 10-12 mins. They will be completely set and hard by then. When you break the chocolate in half, you should hear a ‘snap’! That’s the sound of a perfect homemade chocolate.🤓🤓😬
Follow the same recipe for Dark chocolate compound or Milk chocolate compound too. 😊
They keep well for 3-4 days under refrigeration.
I made a small batch of 7-8 pieces! Do try these out…
