How to Make Heart Shaped Candies for Valentine’s Day
– Hey guys, it's Desiree.
Valentine's Day is coming up,
and if you're looking to make
something sweet and delicious
for your friends, family or your significant other,
I have just the thing for you.
These dark cocoa hearts are actually
filled with this fluffy delicious
strawberry champagne filling.
It's so easy to make, and they look
really impressive and fancy,
like they came from a candy shop.
All you're going to need are some
Candy Melts and three easy ingredients.
To get started, you're going to want to
pick up one of these silicone molds.
It's 12 cavity hearts, and melt down
some dark cocoa Candy Melts
in a decorating bag.
I'm going to start off just filling
these heart cavities.
You only want to fill these about
one-third of the way up the mold.
Now that I have my mold filled,
I'm going to take a food-safe
decorating brush, and I'm going
to paint the chocolate up
the sides of the mold.
Remember, we're putting a filling
in these, so we have to create
a candy shell to hold it.
Once you have the mold
completely filled, put it
in the freezer for five to 10 minutes
or until the candy is set.
While my candy is chillin',
I'm gonna make my fillin'.
I'm going to take 3/4 of a cup
of Marshmallow Fluff, a 1/4 cup
of strawberry preserves, and a teaspoon
of the Treatology Crisp Champagne flavoring.
Give this a stir until it's all combined.
Nothing says Valentine's Day to me
like strawberries and champagne.
Now that it's all mixed together,
I'm going to put this in a disposable decorating bag.
It's going to make it way easier
to fill up the candy hearts.
I've taken the mold out of the freezer,
and you can see that the candy is firm.
Now, I'm going to take that
strawberry champagne filling,
and fill each of these three-quarters
of the way up.
I'm going to tap this just a bit
to let the filling settle before I add
the last layer of Candy Melts.
Now I'm going to take the rest
of my Candy Melts and cover up
all of the hearts.
Give the mold a good tap
to make sure everything is nice and level,
and then pop it back in the freezer
for 15 to 20 minutes so that your
hearts completely set.
Now these are completely frozen,
so I'm going to give the sides
a tug here to help loosen
the candy from the mold.
It'll just make it easier to pop them out.
Then I'll put each of them on this
baking sheet covered with parchment paper here
so that I can decorate them.
These turned out awesome.
Even I'm impressed with how easy that was
and how great they turned out.
Now I just have to finish them
off with some decorating.
I have some Candy Melts candy here
that I'm going to just drizzle over
the hearts and add some sprinkles.
And there you have it,
a simple, impressive sweet treat
that anyone will love this Valentine's Day.
You can gift it to somebody special,
or you can have them out
for friends and family.
I personally host a galentine's party
every year with my girlfriends
where we get some wine, food,
desserts and these will definitely
be out this year.
All right, I can't resist this any longer.
I have to try one.
Mmm, this gooey filling is awesome.
