Homemade Chocolates

Making little chocolates is a really lovely activity to while away the time, and this recipe is as simple as melting some lovely chocolate and adding your favourite flavours and textures to liven it up a bit. It’s great fun to do with children, and makes a welcome gift for loved ones.

There are many sweet little moulds you can use but if you don’t have any, you could also grease some spoons to use as moulds and serve a big plate of them to wow your family and friends, or simply spread out little rounds on a sheet of non-stick paper and make buttons instead.

makes approximately 15-18 chocolates

INGREDIENTS

200g dark raw or organic chocolate, broken into small pieces (I really like this one from Ombar)

Your choice of flavours & textures:

A little sea salt
Chia seeds
Cacao nibs
Orange zest
Some little fresh mint leaves
Chopped nuts of your choice (pistachios look lovely)
Goji berries or chopped apricots
Puffed rice or quinoa


STEP-BY-STEP

Melt the chocolate very gently in a bowl over barely simmering water. Set aside in a warm place.

Add a little of your favourite textures and flavours to the bottom of each mould (this will be the top when you turn them out).

Pour over your melted chocolate.

Put them into the freezer to set.

Enjoy!
