So Valentine's day is quickly approaching. A little more than a month away. Yes, we just got over Christmas and New Year and we're sick of food. But can one really ever be sick of chocolate? I've heard there are those people out there who do not like chocolate, but for me that is something that doesn't compute to my taste buds. So here is the most simple chocolate recipe for those of you, like me, who never ever get enough of it.
Here is what you will need. Just 4 simple ingredients: Butter, baker's chocolate, confectioner's sweetener, and vanilla, as well as a candy mold or some mold to put them in. If you don't have a candy mold you can use mini muffin tins, or whatever you have. My molds gave me 20 pieces of candy.
This is made in the microwave, so it's very simple. In a small bowl you just add diced unsalted butter:
Then add the chopped chocolate:
Add the Swerve confectioner's sweetener or another brand of confectioner's sweetener to your liking. It must be one that goes well to sweeten chocolate likely erythritol based.
