I always thought that if I wanted to make chocolates, that I needed to buy a chocolate mould - which of course, I never got around to doing. Then I realised that I could make my own chocolates at home using a mini muffin tin and some matching patty pan cases - easy! When you make your own chocolates in a patty pan case, you also get the pretty ridges up the sides of your chocolates - so they taste delicious and look good too!
This is an easy recipe that uses every day ingredients that you may already have inside your pantry already. These chocolate bites don't need any expensive essences or liquors, just simply flavours that you already know and love. Why don't you give this recipe a try this weekend? You won't stop at one...
5/ Place the last cup of Nestle Choc Bits into another microwave-safe bowl and microwave at 30-second intervals until smooth. Spoon 1 teaspoon of melted chocolate over the top of each one, then spread it over the top to cover the ingredients underneath.
6/ Place in the freezer for 2 hours until set. Remove the mini muffin tin and peel the patty pans off the chocolates. Put aside the ones you would like to eat and defrost for 10 minutes prior to serving. Place the rest in a container to store in the freezer.
The best part of this easy recipe is that you can mix up the ingredients to your taste. As long as you have melted chocolate on the top and bottom, you can experiment with other jam flavours, nuts and spreads. Enjoy!
