Revolutionary chocolate that takes the internet by storm. All you need is love … and what’s the best aphrodisiac if not chocolate?
Which is why for this valentine’s day I have prepared for you this last minute recipe that requires only 3 common ingredients. Let us make a love chocolate!
If you were planning to make a special Valentine’s Day dessert, but something did not work out or going out is not an option than keep or reading as this is a recipe for you.
– Chocolate or several chocolate bars, depending on the size of the tin. My mold was very large and in my case I needed 4 chocolates.
– Your favourite nuts. I used a handful of pistachios but I was also tempted to use cashew nuts.
– Additional ingredients and spices, although unnecessary, will be appreciated. I used frozen dried strawberries and a tiny bit of chilli – highly recommended, but you may also add additional type of nuts, dried fruit, jelly beans, dried flower petals or even honeycomb crumbs.
Cut or crush the chocolate into small pieces and melt it slowly on a small fire – remember to keep slowly steering the chocolate to not let it boil. Dissolve chocolate in a water bath, i.e. boil the hot water and then put in it your smaller (pot, bowl) filled with chocolate. This will control the melting process. It may sound complicated but trust me frying the chocolate directlly over the hob will jeprodize the process. Alternativelly you could use a microwave.
Pour the melted chocolate into a heart-shaped mold, garnish with nuts and let it cool. if you want to speed up the process, put the mold in the fridge or freezer, of course, after it has already cooled down to not damage your appliances.
P.S. if you don’t have a mold, just cut the heart out of the cardboard, wrap the tape and put out the climbing film. That’s what I did!
Enjoy the result!
