Chocolate Adventure #1

With February fast approching, I thought it would be a great idea to practice making some chocolate treats. First thing I thought of making were Chocolate Lollipops but not just any ordinary Chocolate Lollipops - I wanted to make some Belgian Chocolate Lollipops. 

It's important to start with the right ingredients so I decided to use some good quality Callebaut Belgian Chocolate

I melted the chocolate over some simmering water until I achieved the right consistency.

I didn't have a pastry bag so I improvised by using a Ziploc bag which worked quite well. 

The Ziploc pasty bag made filling the mold fast and easy. I didn't make a mess ... 

After filling and tapping the air out of my chocolate mold, I put them in the refrigerator to set for 10 minutes. 

Voila! Homemade Belgian Chocolate Lollipops! Pretty good for my first try.

I'll be posting more Chocolate Adventures soon ...
