This is one of the easiest things you'll do, and they turn out so nicely. My more artistic friends will think of ways to dress these up- drizzle them with something, pop them into a little cellophane bag tied with a bow, or nestle them into a cute little box.
Easiest Valentine's Chocolates
You will need:Chocolate chips, your favorite kind
Microwave safe bowl
Silicone candy mold
1. Melt chocolate according to package directions. To make the chocolate a little smoother and easier to pour, you can add a bit of shortening or coconut oil (about a teaspoon per 6 oz. of chocolate).
2. Pour chocolate into molds. Do not overfill over the brim, or the chocolates will not come out quite as nicely and smoothly. Gently tap the mold on the counter two or three times to shake any air bubbles up to the surface.
3. Refrigerate molds until chocolate is completely set and solid.
4. Pop chocolates out of molds, and you're done! Store tightly covered. If your house is warm, you may want to keep the chocolates refrigerated.
Notes: I wasn't quite sure whether to oil the molds or not. Most sources I consulted said it was not necessary. I very lightly oiled the molds for the first batch (put a little oil on my finger and lightly went over the insides of the molds). For the second batch, I washed and dried the molds and did not oil them at all. I couldn't tell any difference in how the chocolates came out.
