homemade chocolates leftover chocolate

Who does not love chocolates? Do you have a lot of leftover chocolate just sitting it the refrigerator? Now, how often does that happen, chocolates never last! I had a lot of cooking chocolate and other chocolates leftover from making eggless chocolate brownies, eggless chocolate cake etc. I decided to make these cute heart shaped homemade chocolates leftover chocolate.
They really are very cute and most importantly melt in the mouth. To be honest, this is not a recipe at all but just an interesting way of using up chocolate. These homemade chocolates leftover chocolate are sure to turn out good.
The key lies in tempering chocolate (melting to get the right gloss). I am no expert in tempering chocolate but there is something about working with chocolate in the kitchen. It is magical, it is therapeutic 🙂

Chocolates hate moisture and humidity. It is a sensitive product but it does not get to stay on shelves for long and thank God for that!
You can add any kind of flavouring to these chocolates, orange, mint, vanilla, coffee or even a hint of chilli! Any nuts like almonds, cashews, raisins, cherries or any nut of your choice. I have added toasted hazelnuts here. Add any you like! Make these your own. Use any mould or just turn them into chocolate bark.
Do try these homemade chocolates leftover chocolate and share them 🙂

Method

  10. Now start spooning melted chocolate into these moulds. Work quickly
  11. Place a nut or two of your choice
  12. Place the mould sheet in the refrigerator and let it set. Takes about half an hour or so. If it feels wet keep it for some more time

Notes
Chocolate can also be melted in a microwave oven. Melt in 20s bursts and mix in between, it takes only about a minute to melt all chocolate

Add flavouring when chocolate has melted. Just a drop or two would be enough

You can even chop up the nuts and mix them in melted chocolate

Make sure it is not warm and humid where you are working and also keep way water sources
