Who doesn't love chocolates at Christmas?! These handmade chocs are great fun to make and can be adapted easily to include your favourite flavours ie. alcohol! Gift wrap them as presents or eat them all yourself on Christmas Day. These little balls of luxury will make you feel like a master chocolatier! They're cheaper than you'd think - I made these 23 chocs for £4.56!
Large glass bowl to melt the chocolate in
Small saucepan with about an inch of barely simmering water
Baking tray lined with baking parchment
This video is more for demonstration purposes as you may be making larger quantities. You can start by cooking-along, then continue alone to make as many as you like, or watch the videos first then cook without them. If you're going to cook-along, have your pan of barely simmering water on the hob. Have the dark chocolate and glass bowl next to the hob and click here!
