Valentine Chocolate Suckers

I posted a few melt and pour Valentine suckers. I hope they give you some lovely ideas.

This is a classic white chocolate sucker. I simply added a few white candy pearls.
Taking a few minutes to paint these chocolate balloon hearts pays off in big cuteness.
So many styles to choose from. I have a hard time picking just one.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Valentine Mini Cupcakes

Super cute chocolate cupcakes. The bottom of these cupcakes are mini peanut butter cups. The tops are molded white chocolate coatings. Yes, I put the tiny hearts on with tweezers, but it was worth it.

See my website for supplies and my cookbook Chocolates by Imagination Spring and Summer, which has a more detailed recipe for the chocolate Mini Cupcakes.

Chocolate Coatings Melted

Here is a rare peak at my work station. I like to call it my painters pallet. Obviously, this is for Valentine's Day chocolates. Red and Pink. I keep my chocolate coatings on a warming try while I work, sometimes all day. It's much better than reheating the coatings constantly. With Easter and Spring coming, this pallet will transform to pastels.
