Candied Peanut & Sea Salt Chocolate

Candies Peanut & Sea Salt Chocolate
This was supposed to have a mixture of Fruit and Nuts as a topping, but typically me,.. I found these delicious Candy coated Peanuts, so back on the rack with the Fruit and Nuts and here we are with the Candied Peanut and Sea Salt Chocolate.
Super easy – no mold, yes, my heart shaped cookie cutters again!  As some of us in our household like our chocolate with a bit of Sea Salt and others don’t, I made half with the Salt and the other half without.
Candies Peanut & Sea Salt Chocolate
You will need:
A good quality Chocolate, melted
Candied/Sugared Peanuts
Different size Heart cookie cutters  {or just one size}
Sea Salt {optional}
Sprinkles – I used “lips”  {optional}
Candies Peanut & Sea Salt Chocolate
Place your chosen cookie cutters on a piece of aluminum foil {flat plate underneath}
Pour the melted Chocolate into the cutters {to your thickness preference}
Place in the freezer compartment until half set (about 1 – 2 minutes, depending on the thickness}
Candies Peanut & Sea Salt Chocolate
Top with the Candied Peanuts whilst still half set – add the Sea Salt and Sprinkles {if using} now as well.
Place back in the freezer compartment for another 2 – 3 minutes until fully set.

Gently break off the excess chocolate which has seeped through {see arrows}.
Tap out your chocolate heart from the cookie cutter {I found to push it a little upwards first and then out downwards works best}
Perfect as a teacher or friend gift. Use paper lunch bags with a nice Valentine’s ribbon as packaging.

  1. I wish I had seen all the cookie cutter ideas before Christmas, such a great idea! I'm very curious about salt in chocolate. Since I like my sea salt…a lot sounds like its something I would like. I need more hours in the day to cook.
