Hello, my beautiful ladies!
February is a wonderful month. It is the month that is devoted to LOVE. Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays. It ranks right next to Halloween! Then I would have to say Christmas and my birthday would be number two. Yes..my birthday is a holiday…in my book anyway! (As it should be in everybody’s book!)
So, I decided to try something new for myself and make chocolate pops! YUMMY, right?! I gathered all my supplies. I had big grand plans on what I was going to do. And it didn’t turn out that way. They turned out beautifully, but not without managing to get chocolate behind my ear and in parts of the kitchen I didn’t even go anywhere near. All my letters were jumbled together, and on top of that…for me writing letters backwards is just as hard as trying to make them look perfect. It was messy, but fun!
You will need the following items to help make your chocolate hearts!
- Heart shaped candy/sucker pan
- Melting chocolate
- Sucker bags
- Icing bags
- And a dump truck full of patience.
It is pretty easy, but if you are making a lot of chocolate hearts, it is very time consuming. All you do is melt the chocolate, decide what color you want in which spot in the mold, put melted chocolate into decorating bag and pipe to your heart’s content. I only have one candy mold, so it took me forever just to do 8 chocolate pops. I was going to get creative and melt the white chocolate with some food coloring, but once I discovered chocolate on the stove and on my ears, I realized I was making a HUGE mess and had to clean it up.
Stick the pops in the fridge for about 10 minutes or until they are ready to pop out of the molds and be stuck into a sucker bag and tied off with beautiful ribbon. Make sure you put the stick in the chocolate before it hardens. We don’t want chocolate pops with out something to hold on to!
Ladies, I hope that you got something wonderful from your loved ones. From a handwritten card, to flowers, to chocolate, to jewelry, and to a card that you can barely read, but know what it says because your child made it for you. I also hope that you went out and got something for the loves of your life. Although I am single, this Valentine’s Day, my love is still going to be handed out with these beautiful pops! My co-workers especially love it because they get all the goodies!
Remember ladies…chocolate is an aphrodisiac – love it, enjoy it and have fun! (But don’t eat too much! You’ll get a tummy ache!)
Love my Doves,
