Valentine Chocolate Lollipops

Valentine Chocolate Lollipops

I made heart shaped chocolate lollipops to go along with my son's Valentine's cards. If you've been reading my blog for a while, then you might remember I made some chocolate lollipops before for my daughter's birthday but in pink colored white chocolate.

This time around, I melted milk chocolate chips in a double boiler (you can use the microwave if you prefer) and filled the cute heart-shaped chocolate/candy molds. I then placed the filled molds in the refrigerator until it was set and then popped the chocolates out of the mold. Easy peasy.

It really is simple and for those of you who seem intimidated by chocolate molds, don't be. I remember being apprehensive about trying it out. It's a lot of fun. You can make it more difficult by painting different colors of chocolate but I'm just as happy with one solid color.

Hope you all have a delicious Valentine's Day.

That is so sweet - and they are so professional looking! (Great photography!!!) Nice mold. Not so easy to find. Your little boy will feel very proud to give those to his friends. What a wonderful memory from mommy.
(I still haven't had the courage to use a mold, but have collected quite a few... another one of my numerous "weird" flaws!)

Valerie: you can find molds at Michael's Crafts, Bulk Barn and I've even picked up a few at Walmart.
