Fill each heart cavity 1/3 full. Use a tooth pick to push the chocolate up the sides of the mould. Place in the fridge to set. Add drops of Flavoured Food Colouring or Flavoured Oil to the Fondant Creme. Fill each chocolate shell 2/3 full. Top with melted buttons and place in the fridge to set. Attach lollipop Sticks with a dot of melted buttons.

Toffee D’or, is a delicious ready to use caramel. Simply spoon or pipe directly into the chocolate shell then cover with melted buttons. Place into the fridge to set.

Step 2 - Foil Wrapping
