The Bunny Chocolates and The Candy Fun And Awards

In my last post I had shared the snaps of  my homemade chocolates and candies. You can view it HERE.Now the time has come to share the easiest and fanciable homemade chocolate recipe. Making chocolate at home is a real fun which I enjoy very much with my daughter most of the time after our dinner. And home made chocolates are also a best way to save your money and to gift your near dear ones. Without wasting much time let me go straight to the ingredients and method. And here they are-

Ingredients:-
Baking Chocolate bar/chocolate morsels
Chocolate mould

Note: Always remember that a single drop of water may scathe your chocolates.

Method:-
1. Slice the chocolate bar in to small pieces.
2. For the first timer I would recommend to go for a double boiler to melt the chocolate. Take two container one big and another small so that the small one should sit on the big one. Pour water on the big container with a fixed measurement so that when you will put the small container it should not touch the water. Boil the water. Take off the stove. Put the chocolate slices on the small one and put the container on the big one. Use a spoon or a spatula to keep on stirring the chocolate. When the chocolate is totally melted take it down from the steam.

3. Take the mould. Slowly pour the melted chocolate on the mould.
4. When it’s done, tap the mould on a hard surface to get the bubbles out and to set properly.

5. Keep in the refrigerator till they set for half an hour.
6. To serve the chocolate, take a plate. Reverse the mould and with a slight tap let the chocolates come out of the mould.

7. If you are confident enough then microwave is the easiest and fastest option for chocolate making. Just make sure that your chocolate should not over melt.

Now to prepare the coloured candy or  candy lollypop, you can use coloured candy melts or you can use white baking chocolate or chocolate morsels and colours. For the Lollypops you need Lollypop moulds and Lollypop sticks. The process will be same. Only what you have to do is to divide the chocolates in to parts and add different colours in them. Give your Candies desired colours and enjoy the fun along with your family. You have to add the sticks just before putting the ready mould in the fridge.



Tips:-
To make coloured candy or Lollypop you can use the decorating bags. The bags make your designing more easy and creative.
Variations:-
If you don’t have any mould then -
1. You can use the Ice trey. I have also made few on it here is the snap. I added chocolate rice for extra taste. You can add vanilla essence or any other essence to enhance the taste.


2. You can add chopped nuts in the melted chocolate and one by one, fill a spoon and cast on the plate. Then put in the fridge to set.
