Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching, so I wanted to share this Homemade Chocolate Raspberry Heart recipe with you. I eat chocolate pretty much every day of the year, but these little candies are so easy to make and can be a little sweet treat for your special someone next week.
You only need a couple of bars of your favorite chocolate for this recipe (I used this brand), along with some raspberry flavor and a mold to form the candies. I used a heart-shaped silicone mold I got off Amazon, and you can buy the raspberry flavor there too.
To make this recipe, you simply melt your bars with the raspberry flavor, and pour the mixture into your molds. You can even be super messy like me!
After 30 minutes in the freezer to set, you have homemade chocolate hearts with the lovely flavor of raspberry:
Here’s my printable recipe:
- 2 3.5-ounce bars of chocolate (I like these)
- 1 teaspoon raspberry flavor
- seeds of one vanilla bean or ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
- Break the chocolate into small pieces and place in a small saucepan over low heat. Add the raspberry flavor and vanilla beans.
- Use a whisk to stir everything together as the chocolate melts. Be careful not to overheat, you just want the chocolate to melt enough to pour into your molds.
- Once the chocolate has liquefied, carefully pour the mixture into your molds. You can use a spoon to fill the molds if that is easier.
- Then, place the molds into your freezer for at least 30 minutes to set.
- Serve chilled or at room temperature.
