Ingredients

Chocolate / Carob Coating

Filling

Instructions

  • Melt cocoa butter or alternative over very low heat. (This is important. If you heat the oil too high, your nice chocolate coating will end up as a gloppy mess.  Still edible, but not pretty. Not that I ever did that or anything :-).) 
  • Transfer the oil to a bowl, add other ingredients and mix well.  I used my Bamix immersion blender to do the mixing.  It works great and is my new favorite kitchen tool.
  • Spoon a small amount of the melted chocolate into your molds.  Just enough so you have the thickness that you'd like the chocolate coating to be.
  • Place mold in fridge to harden while you make the filling.
  • For filling, combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well.
  • Place filling in freezer to firm.
  • When filling is more firm, remove from freezer and shape into tiny balls.
  • Place one small ball of filling into each mold, on top of the hardened chocolate.
  • Spoon the remaining chocolate all over the filling and fill the mold.
  • Level off the mold with a knife, if desired, for a nicely shaped candy.
  • Chill until firm and store in fridge or freezer (if you can keep out of them that long).
