Homemade Chocolate (Easy method)
Makes: 24 chocolates (depending upon the size of the mould)
150 g good quality cooking chocolate, chopped (here I used Rich’s Premium Choco Dark Compound (Rs152/ 500 g). Cooking chocolate and chocolate moulds available @ CurrimBhoys, Anna Nagar East (near Airtel office and opp K4 Police station)
2 chocolate moulds (silicone chocolate mould or good quality plastic mould)
2 teaspoon butter or oil (to grease mould)
Grease chocolate moulds with butter or oil and keep it ready.
Melt chopped cooking chocolate in a double boiler until smooth and creamy. Double boiler -a pair of saucepans, one of which fits above and partly inside the other: chocolate is melted in the upper one by water boiling in the lower and it helps even cooking and smooth in consistency. Stir continuously until it reaches a creamy texture. Keep aside to cool for 15 minutes and then fill in each mould with the help of a teaspoon. Store in refrigerator once it reaches at normal temperature. It may take 1 to 1 1/2 hours to set completely. Gently remove from the mould with the help of a sharp needle. Wrap moulded chocolates in colourful gift paper. It can be used as a perfect homemade gift for all occasions.
