Homemade Valentine candy, day 2


Day 2 of making Valentines candies - they  will look like this in the end:

I took my mixture out of refrigerator and it looked like this:
 Gorgeous. As chocolate can be.

So, what you need now -
small size pretty baking paper cups
1/2 cup cacao for dusting
wax paper
cookie tray
 Line your cookie tray with the wax paper. With a tablespoon, make equal sized mounts of chocolate mixture and place them on your cookie tray leaving about 1" of space between them. This is your future candies, so count how many you will get.

Place the same amount of the baking cups on a tray or a flat plate. Pour your cacao on a separate plate. Now - this is messy. 
Dust your hands with cocoa and roll each portion of your mixture to form a ball. Carefully place it in a baking cup. Continue until all the rolls are dusted, perfect in shape and asking to be eaten :)
Refrigerate them to harden. I have to say, mine are little too soft and I am thinking about freezing them. So it might be because I used a fat free whipping cream instead of heavy whipping cream. Well, at least I will know.

Nevertheless, they taste very good to us chocolate and coffee lovers :)
