ice + chocolate=ice chocolates
who wouldn’t be smitten with these sweet little morsels
and silky while
melting in your mouth
they’re good for you
did I mention..
this recipe only requires
two main ingredients
begin with a great 70% dark chocolate
perhaps Lindt Swiss chocolate
then add half as much
we all know that a little dark chocolate a day is good for you
and coconut oil has its own health benefits
and let cool slightly
gently separate your foil candy cups onto a small tray
pour in the chocolate
of course all sorts of other surprises
could be added..
a few drops of peppermint flavoring
crushed peppermint candy cane
perhaps a sprinkling of
Wilton Sparkling Sugar..
mixed nuts, raisins, craisins
snippets of marshmallow
would add texture..
but the lovely feature of this chocolate is its ability to melt instantly in your mouth
- 200 grams 70% dark chocolate
- 100 grams extra virgin coconut oil
- foil candy cups, the smallest you can find
- peppermint extract
- crushed candy cane
- Wilton sparkling sugar
- nuts, chopped
- dried cranberries
- miniature marshmallows, etc
- Combine broken pieces of chocolate and coconut oil in a large pyrex measuring cup with pouring spout.
- Microwave in 40 second bursts until chocolate is melted, about 3-4 times.
- Meanwhile, separate your small foil candy cups on a tray.
- Take the chocolate mixture out of the microwave and stir well. Set aside to cool somewhat.
- If using, add a few drops of peppermint extract or any other flavoring to taste.
- If adding, sprinkle a few pieces of nuts, raisins, dried cranberry or marshmallow into each cup.
- Stir the chocolate mixture again then gently and slowly pour into the foil cups.
- Place the tray in the fridge for a very short while. Remove and top with peppermint candy cane or sparkling sugar as you wish. Return to the fridge to set.
I’m so enjoying my Christmas Scandinavian theme this year!
