Are you looking for a quick and easy treat to make for Valentines day? Perhaps something the kids can make?
These easy layered chocolate hearts are so simple to make and a fun activity for kids too. We used these as a cool opportunity to learn about chocolate melting – it melts into a liquid when it gets hot, but turns back into a solid when it cools down. So it’s really a science experiment too!!! If that isn’t a good enough excuse to make (and eat!) chocolates, then I don’t know what is!
You can make these with your kids, or make some for them as a valentines treat. They also make cute gifts in a heart shaped container or paper bag.
All you need is a couple of bars of chocolate, some mini m & m’s and a heart shaped ice cube tray. You could also use regular size m&m’s crushed up – or any other small candies. Feel free to also make these in any other shape you fancy – go wild!
You basically melt milk and white chocolate and layer the chocolate and m&m’s together. You can of course melt chocolate in the microwave, but I think it is more fun for kids to watch the chocolate melting. Up to you!
When layering the hearts (if you trust your kids to not eat all of the ingredients!) you can just give them the spoons and let them get on with it!
Here’s the recipe…
Place your chocolates in a special tray, gift box or bag ready for Valentines Day!
