One month and counting to get ready for Valentines Day! Believe me, time goes fast. “February is the month of love, romance, and of course chocolate! Nothing says ‘I love you’ more than decadent and indulgent chocolate. At least, it always works on me! These chocolate candy boxes are super simple and easy to make. They’re the perfect way to say ‘you’re sweet’ this Valentine’s Day.
When using chocolate for molds like this, always temper the chocolate first. Chocolate that has been tempered has a really nice sheen or gloss and has a great snap when you eat it. Chocolate that has not been tempered can look dull, streaky, and blotchy and have a kind of sponge-like texture. Tempering may intimidate some people, but it’s really simple and easy to master. It’s basically the act of heating chocolate to a specific temperature, then cooling it back down so that the structure of the chocolate forms evenly.”
