Chocolate Cherry Bombs by The Little Blog of Vegan

Prep Time

10 minutes

Difficulty

A little tricky

Serves

4 bombs

Like little bundles of joy! The Little Blog of Vegan has done it again with their Chocolate Cherry Bombs - made to shimmer, sparkle and put you in the mood for L-O-V-E.

INGREDIENTS

150g of dairy-free white chocolate

Pink food gel

20g of dairy-free dark chocolate chips

Vegan marshmallows

Limited Edition Chocolate Cherry Brownie Hot Chocolate

200ml milk/dairy alternative

Decorations (optional)

Freeze-dried raspberries

Edible glitter

Top Tip

Pipe some of the melted chocolate around the rim of your serving glass and press on freeze-dried raspberries.

METHOD

  1. Finely chop the white chocolate and place 3/4 of it into a heatproof bowl along with a tiny drop of pink food gel. Too much food gel can make the chocolate solidify, so be careful. If this does happen, add a tiny bit of coconut oil to loosen the mixture.
  2. Create a Bain-Marie to melt your chocolate over a low heat. Temper your chocolate. Check out this tutorial video to show you how.
  3. Using a food-grade brush, brush a thin layer of tempered chocolate into silicone moulds then place into the freezer for 5 minutes.
  4. Paint a second coat of chocolate over the first and pop into the freezer for 5 minutes.
  5. Remove the chocolate hearts out of the moulds. They'll be shiny and firm to touch. Fill half of the hearts with 2 teaspoons of Chocolate Cherry Brownie hot chocolate, a small handful of mini vegan marshmallows and a couple of dairy-free dark chocolate chips.
  6. Pipe or dip some melted chocolate around the rim of the chocolate hearts and attach the second heart on top, pressing together gently to seal in the fillings.
  7. Add some of the melted chocolate into a piping bag, snip off the tip and drizzle over half of the heart then decorate with a sprinkling of hot chocolate powder, freeze fried raspberries and a dusting of edible glitter (decorations are optional).
  8. To make your hot chocolate, heat your dairy free milk. Pour into heatproof mugs and drop in the chocolate bomb, then watch it explode with marshmallows and hot chocolate powder.
  9. Stir with a spoon to combine everything into a smooth drink – delicious!
    (Oh, and be sure to store the chocolate bombs in the fridge afterwards!)
