Ingredients

  • 300g Roberts Melting Buttons Dark, Milk or White – melted
  • Roberts Flavoured Oil – Orange, Peppermint or Strawberry
  • 150g Roberts Fondant Creme – Strawberry or Plain
  • Roberts Flavoured Food Colouring - optional
  • Roberts Caramel Toffee D’Or - optional

Materials

  • Roberts Heart Chocolate Mould #HH
  • Roberts Eye Droppers
  • Roberts 14” Piping Bags
  • Roberts Sculpting Tool #3
  • Roberts Foil Wrapping
  • Roberts Acetate Box G or J – optional
  • Glass Jar – optional


Option 1 - Flavoured Solid Chocolates

Refer to the back of the mould card for detailed instructions of how to flavour and make heart chocolates.

Option 2 - Soft Centred Chocolates

Fill each cavity of the Heart Mould with melted buttons. When the chocolate begins to set around the outside edge and forms a 1 - 2mm shell, tip the mould upside down over a sheet of baking paper to remove excess chocolate. Clean around the edge of each shell using Sculpting Tool #3.
Place the mould into the fridge for approximately 15 minutes to set.
Pipe a small amount of Strawberry Fondant Creme filling or Caramel D’Or into each chocolate shell filling two thirds full.
Alternatively, create your own flavour by adding drops of Roberts Flavoured Food Colouring to the Plain Fondant Creme.
Top with melted buttons and refrigerate until set.

Foil Wrapping
Cut the foil into 9 x 9cm squares. Place a square of foil, colour side down over the mould cavity.
Place a heart upside down on top of the foil. Gently press it into the mould. Fold and smooth the foil over the back of the chocolate.
Remove the heart from the mould and smooth the front with your fingers.

Arrange chocolates in an Acetate Box wrapped with colourful ribbon or a decorative glass jar.
