If you’re looking to make your Valentine a sweet treat, what says I love you more than edible gold foil?! These melted chocolates are possibly the easiest dessert you can whip up and they’re equal parts delicious and fun. Here’s how:
You can buy any color of candy melts you want, same goes for the shape of the mold. I found both of mine at my local party store, but Michaels and Amazon have a pretty decent selection. A heart shaped mold would be super cute for Valentine’s Day, and well, everyday if we’re being honest.
Make sure all of your utensils are dry before beginning. Water causes the chocolate coating to harden and steak. You can either melt your chocolates in the microwave (stirring every 30 seconds until melted) or with the double boiler method on the stove.
Once your chocolate is melted, pour into your mold. It helps to run the back of a knife across the top to smooth the bottom of your candy out. Tap the mold on a hard surface to get rid of any air bubbles (important step!) and then set in the freezer for 10 minutes. Your chocolates should pop right out once you remove them from the freezer!
To complete, apply gold foil to your chocolates by placing the sheet on the surface and smoothing with your finger. Easy as that! Store at room temperature (don’t put back in the fridge) and keep away from heat and light.
