These Chocolate Mint Hearts can be made in about 15 to 20 minutes, and they look beautiful. I bought this new silicone heart mold at Michael's for Valentine's Day. The inside of the mold was so pretty, that I had to give it a try. It is a Wilton mold and had directions to make chocolates in it by just melting three Candy Melts in each heart. Well, I must tell you, we were all impressed when they were done. These hearts were made for Valentine's Day, and I made three dozen, and they are gone. I will need to make more for Valentine's Day, but they are so easy that is not a problem. (By the way, Vince and I ate a few, but my Hubby ate all of the rest.
Chocolate Mint Hearts
1 bag Chocolate Mint Candy Melts
Wilton Silicone Mold
1. Place 3 candy melts in each heart.
2. Place the mold in your microwave, and turn the microwave on at 40 percent power for 1 minute.
3. Pull the mold out of the microwave, and check to see how the chocolate is melting.
4. Place it back in the microwave and repeat step 2.
5. Pull the mold out of the microwave again, and check to see if the chocolate is melted. It may take one more time in the microwave. Repeat step 2 again.
6. Once the candy is melted, drop the mold on the counter several time to release the bubbles in the candy. You'll see them rise to the top and pop. I do this maybe 6 to 7 times.
7. You can then let the candy cool and harden on the counter, or I put it in the freezer for 7 minute to harden quicker.
8. Next, just pop the chocolate hearts out of the mold and the candy is ready to eat.
9. Repeat this process until you have the amount of chocolate hearts that you want.
I bag of Chocolate Mint Candy Melts will make approximately 3 dozen heart pieces.
