Our Hearts Are Tied Together

Two hearts tied together with a ribbon ... and it's CHOCOLATE !  No mold needed, only a basic kitchen baking tool....

This was unbelievably easy to make. Let me show you how:

I know, I know - as soon as you had seen the two heart shaped cookie cutters, you have put it together, right? Well, for me, it was a first!  

Place the two cookie cutters on a piece of aluminium foil as shown in the above pic - melt chocolate and carefully pour in between the two cutters {as this was my first go at it, I made it a little thick and I did not want to break the hearts when removing them} - Chill for 2 - 3 minutes in the freezer compartment.

1.) Remove the outer cookie cutter carefully
2.) See the cutter had come away clean from the chocolate
3.) Whilst the inner cutter is still in place - break off the excess chocolate which has seeped through - then remove the cutter.

I made big hearts and smaller ones as well.
To finish I drizzled Caramel Chocolate over and tied a Valentine ribbon around two of the hearts.

Happy Valentine's crafting/baking and cooking!

Ciao for now,
