Easy Custom-Made Chocolates ~ Romantic Homemaking Series


You don’t need millions of dollars to create a happy home.

just millions of seconds...

to make millions of sweet memories.

(Hot cocoa, steaming coffee and cups of tea, piles of  blankets, homemade desserts, hugs, kisses, books, forts and plenty of prayers.)

“So teach us to number our days,
That we may gain a heart of wisdom.”
~ Psalm 90:12

Sometimes you want to do something special for your family but don't have a lot of time. Here is an easy recipe project that is fun, festive and fairly fast! It can also be customized to everyone's special diets! Plus, it includes chocolate and I personally find that very romantic.


First, you will need to have a mold. I found mine at the thrift shop but you can also use a cupcake tin or even just the cupcake liners. Silicone molds will work beautifully too. I didn't grease mine as when the chocolate solidifies, it just pops out (give a little tap on the pan from upside down).


Place your favorite add-ins such as nuts, seeds, dried fruit, coconut, flavored baking chips, granola or trail mix inside your chosen mold. I used the Lily's butterscotch chips and white chocolate chips which are less sugar -- you can find them in healthy grocery stores or even Walmart. I also used salted nuts and unsweetened coconut flakes.


Pour melted chocolate over each one (again we used the Lily’s stevia sweetened chocolate chips -- affiliate link). Place them in the refrigerator and pop them out once solid to reveal the special treats.


For fun, you can serve them in a tin for that old fashioned feel... but I do recommend refrigerating them to keep the chocolate from deteriorating. I left one batch out on the sink for a few days and it didn't fare too well.


“All you need is love.
But a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt.” 
~ Charles M. Schulz

  2. How glad I am to find you here again!
    After so much time, I can write a comment to an amzing post of yours, those posts I’ve never forgotten!
    I’ve been away from the web since the reseraches and the drafting of the history essay I wrote for an Italian publisher about the Habsburgs took up all the time I had.
    But I’ve finally come back.
    Sending blessings on your weekend
