Chocolate Candies with Cocoa Butter
Chocolate makes people happy! It can be even more fun when you make it yourself. Silicone Chocolate molds are inexpensive and make for an impressive presentation. Homemade chocolates are easy to fill with a variety of raw ingredients including macadamia nuts, pistachios, chopped almonds, unsweetened coconut or even chia seeds. You can also easily fill the chocolates with prepared caramel sauce, chocolate chia pudding, coconut macaroon or nut butters. The combinations are limitless!
Truvia and liquid stevia were both tested. Liquid stevia seems to have a very bitter aftertaste when combined with the chocolate. Truvia can be challenging to dissolve in the heavy cream since the cream is high in fat, however, it results in better flavor. The key is to heat the heavy cream until it is very hot. Continue to stir until all the granules of Truvia have dissolved.
