How to Make Valentine Chocolate Japanese 2016

Hey everyone! So, this year I broke down and went forward with making homemade chocolate for Valentine's Day. As you may or may not know, in Japan, Valentine's Day is a day for a girl to give her love chocolate. She will get a return gift on White Day if the affection is returned, etc. Anyway, I really wanted to try to make my own, so I did.

I bought the silicon mold and the chocolate "pens" from Plaza. I bought the chocolate from Caldi. It really wasn't all that difficult. I thought I would share photos from the process beginning to end. I apologize for the poor quality pics. I used my cell phone.

 To start, the pens are actually solid chocolate stuff. So I put them in the pot with warm water to melt them. Once melted, cut off the tip. I didn't expect a miniature explosion, but that happened. Once the pens are melted fill in the mold with the details. I used strawberry flavor for the nose, and regular chocolate flavor for the ears and eyes. The stuff hardens back up pretty quickly.


Once the colorful stuff was done, I moved on to melting the chocolate. I used white chocolate. I don't own a double boiler, so I boiled a pot of water and then melted the chocolate in a metal bowl on top with the heat OFF. Don't get water in the chocolate. At all. It was a warning I found on the internet. Anyway, stir a lot. Like non stop. It took about five minutes to completely melt.


 Mmmmm.... melted white chocolate goo.


I just used a spoon to fill the mold. I followed some web advice and filled the molds up halfway, and then lifted the tray and gently tapped it on the counter, to prevent bubbling. I then proceeded to fill the mold up completely. Then tapped it on the counter again.


I put the chocolate in the freezer for about three or four minutes for it to solidify a bit. I then took it out and left it on top of the fridge for about ten minutes.

Here is the finished product! Some of the middle chocolates weren't completely hardened so they got a bit squished when I popped them out, but almost all of the chocolates turned out great. And they tasted amazing. Of course I did a taste-test. Can't give the man nasty tasting chocolate.

And that, is my chocolate making escapade. :D
