Heart-Shaped Chocolates Recipe

IMG_8932

 

I helped put on my daughter’s school Valentine party on Friday and was put in charge of bringing the food. I love being in charge of food for my kids’ school parties because it allows me to know exactly what ingredient is in each snack or drink. I only bring what my kids can have and it allows them to be able to eat everything together with their friends, which honestly is very rare!

“Love Day” (as she calls it) is my daughter’s favorite day so she requested everything to be heart shaped. I ordered two types of heart-shaped silicone molds from Amazon (here and here) and made gluten-free banana muffins in one and these chocolates in the other.

*You can make them with or without the nut butter.*

Homemade Chocolate Hearts

3/4 c. Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips 

1 TBSP almond milk

1/3 c. almond butter

 

Place the chocolate chips and almond milk together in a microwavable bowl and heat on high in the microwave for 30 seconds. Take the bowl out and stir the mixture until it becomes a very smooth consistency.

Split the chocolate mixture in half, and fill the bottoms of the heart-shaped silicone molds with one of the halves of chocolate. Take little dabs of the almond butter and evenly place on top of the chocolate in the heart-shaped mold.

Finish by placing the last half of the chocolate mixture on top of the almond butter in the molds.

Place in the freezer and once they are hardened, enjoy! Store the remaining heart-shaped chocolates in the freezer to keep firmed up.
