Ever wanted to make your own chocolate .. well let me show you how.
3/4 block of copha (1 block is 250g) This is also known as vegetable shortening
* Cocoa butter is much better than copha but it can be hard to find and a little expensive .. but well worth it!! You can also just use coconut oil.
1 cup of icing sugar
3/4 cup of cocoa powder
1/3 cup of powdered milk
1 capful of vanilla extract
1 capful of coffee essence
1 tablespoon of coconut oil
Using your favourite liqueur would also be great!!
I used white chocolate, cashews and icing in a tube to decorate these. You can have them plain or decorate any way you like! 😉
* If you find the chocolate a little “grainy” once it sets, melt it again and reset!
* Don’t worry if it appears to “runny” when you first make it it will set!
The large tray I got from Spotlight and the smaller plastic sheets I got from Dollars and Sense! 🙂
