Introduction: DIY Chocolate

Don't know what to give to that aunt who you never see? Well, trust me on this: chocolate is the go, so why not make some yourself?

Follow these easy steps, and you'll be a sure favourite this holiday season.

Step 1: What You Will Need

Ingredients:

  • 25g of milk powder
  • 50g of cocao butter
  • 50g of sugar
  • 13g cocao powder

Tools :

  • Medium saucepan
  • Glass or metal bowl
  • Spatula
  • Sieve
  • Chocolate mould

Step 2: Making the Chocolate

Step 1.

Half fill the saucepan with water and place it on medium to high heat

Step 2.

Place bowl over the saucepan, making sure no water is touching it.

Step 3.

Put the cocao butter in the bowl and melt it.

Step 4.

Once the cocao butter is melted, sift in the powdered milk, until it is fully dissolved.

Step 5.

Add the sugar and cocao powder to the bowl and stir until a glossy mixture is formed.

Step 6.

Pour the chocolate into a mould and leave on the bench for 15 min. Then move the chocolate to the fridge to set.

Step 3: Presentation

Presentation is key, so spend that last 5 minutes, and make your chocolates sing. Here are some great ideas:

  1. If you have made small chocolates, put them all in a glass jar, cellophane bag or a beautiful tin.
  2. If you made a block, then put it in a cellophane bag, a paper bag, or wrap in aluminium foil and some festive paper.
