There's a story behind this instructable. Well, isn't there always, I suppose.
See, I had a plan. A best laid plan. Which was slightly foiled by the realities of dealing with that cantankerous substance known as chocolate. So even though these didn't exactly come out the way I envisioned them at the start, they came out even better and more chocolatey in the end, so it all works out.
My original plan was was inspired by the molded crayon stub instructable
- those looked like they should be edible, so let's make an edible version. And punch it up by adding dots, stripes, and layers in the mold, too.
So I'm including how to do that in this instructable.
However, I had a slight issue -- not thinking I stuck the molds in the freezer, and ended up with chocolate bloom (that dusty looking layer that you find on chocolate when the cocoa butter separates and rises to the surface). So they really were not that attractive - though still tasty. Chocolate is just tricky to work with.
So this became the Instructable on chocolate dipped chocolate hearts! And now they are very pretty and even chocolatey-er than before!
So experiment on your own, and don't be afraid of chocolate!
