Easter Chocolate Treats

Servings 30 Bites

Ingredients
  

  • 12 ounces chopped semi-sweet chocolate or chocolate chips
  • ½ cup Easter theme or pastel color candy sprinkles
  • Optional Toppings:
  • dried fruits, (berries ginger/orange, cherries, coconut flakes, craisins…)
  • nuts or seeds, (almonds, pecans, pistachios, pumpkin/sunflower…)
  • Special Equipment:
  • 2 (15 well each) silicone ice cube trays, washed and dried

Instructions
 

  • Melt chocolate using double-boiler or microwave method.
  • Double Boiler- add a couple of inches of water to the bottom of a sauce pan and then place a bowl on top (making sure that bowl does not wobble and that the water does not touch the bottom of the top bowl). Place the chocolate in the bowl and slowly heat the water. Stir until the chocolate melts.
  • Microwave- place chocolate in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave at 35% power, in 30 second intervals, stirring thoroughly after each interval. Carefully continue until chocolate is completely melted and silky.
  • Divide melted chocolate into each silicone well and top with sprinkle candy sprinkles or toppings of choice. Gently press toppings with a small piece of parchment or wax paper. Let set at room temperature for 1 to hours.
  • Pop chocolate cubes out of mold and store in an air-tight container. Enjoy!
  • ** Note: Ice cube trays can be used instead of silicone mold, however, chocolate will be harder to pop-out.
