White Chocolate Sweethearts


With Valentine's Day right around the corner and the kids needing something to keep them entertained during half term I set them to work making these super easy but very yummy White Chocolate Sweethearts.

All you need to make them is three simple ingredients and a heart shaped silicone chocolate mould, I got mine from Aldi yesterday.

Ingredients

White chocolate
Smarties or M&Ms 
Sprinkles


I used pink Smarties because they go with the Valentine's theme and I thought pink, white and red sprinkles would look cute and tie it all together.


All you need to do to make them is pop a few Smarties in the bottom of each heart mould, we put about three in each and then fill in the gaps with sprinkles until the bottom of all the moulds are covered.


Next you melt the chocolate either in the microwave or in a bowl over a pan of boiling water, I used around 150g of chocolate and it was just the right amount. Let the chocolate cool a little so it thickens a bit this way it's not too runny and also if the kids are helping out it's not going to burn them, then gently spoon it into the moulds over the Smarties and sprinkles until each mould is full. 

As you can see I placed my chocolate mould on to a baking tray before I started so that it could be transferred easily into the fridge otherwise it's a nightmare to move as it's so floppy. When all the moulds are full of chocolate give the tray a few gentle taps to dislodge any air bubbles and place in the fridge for around an hour to set.


Once the chocolate is totally set the chocolates should easily pop out of the moulds and you'll have some super cute Valentine's treats to share with your husband, boyfriend or you could just eat them all yourself lol.


My kids loved making these and the fun thing is you can mix up the sweets and sprinkles to make them work for any occasion.
