Chocolate hearts are a tasty way to show someone that you love and care about them! Make this recipe as a gift for Valentine’s Day, Birthdays, or any other special occasion! You can also use the chocolate for dipping pretzels, cookies, and cake pops.
This recipe makes both dark and white chocolate hearts.
- 1 bag of Nestle Toll House Simply Delicious semi-sweet morsels
- 1 bag of Nestle Toll House Simply Delicious white morsels
- Variety sprinkle pack
- 2 Tablespoons vegan butter
- 2 pinches of salt
- 2 shakes of vanilla
- 2 dashes of cinnamon
I also used this heart chocolate mold from Hobby Lobby, but any chocolate or ice cube mold will work!
I start with the white chocolate, and you will see why in a bit.
I don’t have a double boiler, so I just put some water in a big pot, bring it to a boil, and place an empty smaller pot in the water.
After the water is boiling, reduce it to a simmer and put 1 tablespoon of butter into the empty pot.
After the butter melts, dump the entire bag of white chocolate into the butter pot.
Stir the chocolate with a wooden spoon as it melts.
After the chocolate is completely melted, stir in a pinch of salt, a shake of vanilla, and a dash of cinnamon into the mix.
Next, spoon the mix into the mold.
If you are lazy like me, you will just wipe out the pot a bit and reuse it for the dark chocolate. You won’t be able to notice, since the dark will overtake the light!
Repeat these same steps with the dark chocolate.
Once your molds are filled, put in the sprinkles! If you want them in the front, be sure to put the sprinkles in the mold before you pour in the chocolate.
Now let them freeze for a bit! I like to give them at least 35 minutes.
After that, they are finished! For stylish gifting, put them in decorative treat bags.
These are the chocolates I made for a Valentines Day gift. Half of them are facing up, and the other half are bottom-facing to show sprinkle designs.
I hope you found this recipe useful!
