Hiya! Do you remember my last post about the way to make lots of heart shaped miniatures? In today’s tutorial, I am using the same technique to make some heart shaped chocolates for Valentine’s.
This time, I used a 5mm diameter straw, which I think is a pretty standard size, to make the heart shape cutter. If you missed the last tutorial, here is the link on how to make a heart shape cookie cutter out of a straw. –> “DIY miniature heart shape cookie cutter”
I rolled out some chocolate color clay.
And cut out heart shapes. (It’s easier if your clay isn’t too think. If you have a hard time getting your hearts cut out, try making your clay thinner.)
They look ready to go in my mouth.
After hardening the clay, I decided to decorate some of my chocolate hearts.
I used these different types of glue to make caramel, red glaze, and white chocolate.
Now I’ll explain how I made the paper cups to fit the individual chocolates in.
I used a piece of tissue paper for gift wrapping.
I pressed down a straw to leave circles on the paper.
And cut the circles out with scissors. If you have a good size hole puncher, this process would be a lot easier, I think.
Place a circle tissue paper on a silicone, or anywhere soft. You can even do it on your bed. lol
And press down in the middle with something like the back of a paint brush or a pencil.
They don’t look so bad, do they?
I used some glue to glue on my chocolate hearts onto the paper cups.
Once I fit them all in a box, it’s a nice Valentine’s day gift! I will show you how to make a heart shaped box with a lid in the next post.
I like eating these chocolates in a big heart box all by myself while being lazy on my bed….mmm
