Introduction: Lego Chocolate
This is an instructable on how to make Lego chocolates for your sweetie on Valentine's Day.
Step 1: Gathering All the Tools
You will need the following:
- ice cube mold in the shape of Lego bricks or minifigs
- stirring implement (preferably non-metallic)
- microwave (not pictured)
Step 2: Melting the Chocolate
Melt the chocolate in your microwave in 30sec increments at full power or 1min increments at half power. Stir during each break to make sure the chocolate is getting nice and melty. It's better to stop too frequently than to burn your chocolate. I used a wooden chopstick for stirring which I could leave in the microwave with the chocolate.
Step 3: Putting Chocolate in the Mold
I spoon my chocolate in the mold which is a little messy. There are probably neater ways to do it, but I just used what I had readily available.
Step 4: Setting the Chocolate to Shape
You can either put your mold in the freezer (~10mins) or in the fridge (~20-30mins) to harden the chocolate.
Step 5: Popping Out the Chocolate
If you got a silicone mold then the chocolate will just pop out of the mold and be ready to share and eat!
