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 http://www.callebaut.com/.
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 ...
