Chocolate heart with edible flowers
A real eye catcher and the best way to spoil your loved one! Because who doesn’t love chocolate? Mix your favorite chocolate, add some colour and add edible flowers as decoration.
What you need to make your chocolate heart with edible flowers:
- 600 g FunCakes Chocolate Melts White
- 100 g FunCakes Deco Melts Pink
- Edible Flowers
- FunCakes Acetate Foil 5,5 cm x 20 m
- Wilton Parchment Paper
- Dr. Oetker Heart Springform 25x7cm
- Scrapcooking Thermometer
Place a sheet of parchment paper on the bottom of the springform and draw the rim around it. Stick a strip of acetate foil along the inside edge with some water.
Melt 500 g FunCakes Chocolate Melts White in a microwave-safe bowl in the microwave or au bain-marie. When melted add the remaining 100 g chocolate and stir until it is incorporated into the hot chocolate (off the heat and out of the microwave).
Let it cool, stirring occasionally, to a processing temperature of 28/29 degrees, use the thermometer for this. This process is called tempering. If your chocolate is not tempered properly, it will look dull, feel sticky and not give a snap when you break it.
Melt the 100 g FunCakes Deco Melts Pink as indicated on the package.
Pour the white chocolate into the springform and pour the pink Deco Melts on top. Stir through it with a cocktail stick to give it a swirl. Sprinkle a variety of edible flowers along the edge.
Place the chocolate heart in the refrigerator and let it set for at least 2 hours. Continue to store outside the refrigerator.
