It sort of looks like I'm turning this into a food blog lately. It's not my intent but I just haven't had any other decorating things to blog about lately. I have a new project I'll be working on this weekend. It's something wonderful that I just found at the thrift store! Hopefully I'll be able to share it with you soon! Anyway, when it was mega-hot last weekend I decided to try my hand at making chocolate shells. Remember when I made my fondant seashells awhile back? I used that same mold only this time I used melted white and semisweet chocolate. I melted the chocolate in the microwave. After you pour it in the mold you have to pop it in the freezer for a bit before you can unmold it. They turned out great and they taste a lot better than the fondant.
1 Tbsp. butter
1 oz. sugar
12 oz. semi-sweet chocolate, broken into small pieces
Heat heavy cream, butter and sugar a saucepan. Stir frequently and bring the mixture to a boil.
Set chocolate in a stainless steel bowl. Pour hot heavy cream mixture over the chocolate. Allow to sit for 5 minutes to melt the chocolate.
