How cute are these heart chocolates? These heart chocolates are amazingly easy to make and are the perfect sweet treat for when you get those chocolate cravings.
Dairy Free & Sugar Free
They are completely dairy-free and sugar-free. The coconut milk powder in this recipe acts similarly to how dairy would in a chocolate recipe. Coconut milk makes the chocolates nice & creamy! The honey in these heart chocolates lends the perfect amount of sweetness without overdoing it. Of course, you can always decrease the amount of sugar that is in these chocolates by adding a little less. For me, I found 1/4 cup to be just the right amount.
For this recipe, you will need some silicone heart shaped molds to achieve the heart shape. You can find heart shaped molds at Michaels or on Amazon. I definitely suggest getting a couple of these when making these chocolates, so you can freeze all your batches at once. It will just make the process that much quicker for you, instead of having to freeze each batch separately.
Heart Chocolates for Valentine’s Day
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and these little heart chocolates would be the loveliest addition to your Valentine’s Day festivities. Do you celebrate Valentine’s Day? If so, what are your plans?
I don’t get overly excited about Valentine’s Day, as I feel that every day of the year we should be showing people our love & appreciation for them. However, I always find it fun to create recipes inspired by the holidays. Also, I am a sucker for anything heart shaped! Too cute.
My partner and I have been snacking on these nonstop. I tend to get chocolate cravings in the evenings, so these heart chocolates are saving me from having to run to the grocery store to get my evening chocolate fix!
