Today our monthly recurring item : Birthday party treats. This time it was our middle son who became 9 years old and he had a strong desire: Chocolate lollipops . The treat takes some time to make, but it is certainly not too expensive. Especially when you already have a chocolate mold. The mold will cost you around 3.50 Euro. Lollipop sticks and bags 3 Euro. To chocolate we spend 4 Euro. All in all just over 10 Euros for 20 treats. And shape, sticks and leftover bags can subsequently be used for another birthday.
Recipe: Chocolate lollipops
Supplies (20 pieces)
- Chocolate lollipop mold;
- Lolly sticks;
- 300 grams of milk chocolate;
- Optional 100 grams of white chocolate or a colored chocolate;
- Optional bags and tape.
Heat the chocolate au-bain-marie , put the chocolate in a bowl that you hang above boiling water, but the bowl may not touch the water. When you work with an opposite color you first melt that color, do it in the form at the desired spots and let hard for 15 minutes in the refrigerator. Then put 1 tablespoon melted milk chocolate in the form (on top of the first), push the stick into it and pour the rest of the chocolate in until the mold is filled. Allow 1 hour to harden in the refrigerator and take out of the mold.
