valentines day chocolates

Dear Diary,

There is seriously something wrong with me.  Valentine’s day is coming up, and instead of being excited about the romance, flowers and rom-coms… my only concern is the candy.  That’s right, the question of whether I will or won’t be getting chocolate candies from my boyfriend is the only thing I’m worried about… you all know about my chocolate addiction, but this takes it to a whole other level.  Of course my sweet better-half will be getting me some sort of candy… but not wanting to risk it, I decided to take matters into my own hands and create my own chocolate treats!

Like all my recipes– I kept this one as simple and healthy as possible!  These peanut butter and hazelnut hearts covered in dark chocolate are so delicious, they didn’t last long in my home… but they’re so easy to make, I’ll make sure to make a second batch before valentine’s day!

Making chocolate candy was not nearly as difficult as I thought!  The most important thing you need to get is a candy mold– I got this great heart shaped molds at sur la table for less than 5 bucks!

HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED:

half a bag of dark organic chocolate chips

natural peanut butter or natural hazelnut spread (I used the brand “Justin”)

And that’s it!  See… told ya it was simple!

HERE’S WHAT YOU DO:

  • place a glass bowl over a pot of boiling water (have oven mittens close by because the bowl will be hot!)
  • place half a bag of chocolate chips in the bowl and stir until completely melted and shiny.
  • cover the edges and the bottom of the heart molds with chocolate (I used my finger in order to guarantee a smooth surface)
  • then place the mold in the freezer for 10 minutes, just to slightly harden the chocolate
  • then using a small spoon, scoop half a spoonful of peanut butter or hazelnut spread into the center of the heart (not too much so that it will not over flow)
  • then take the remainder of the melted chocolate and cover the top evenly over the filling
  • place the finished molds back in the freezer for at least 20 minutes!
  • pop out of the mold and enjoy SFG’s!!!!
