“Where the bon-bons play…”

“…on the sunny beach of peppermint bay!”

Sometimes you stumble across something and you just fall in love with it. I did that a few months ago and it’s becoming my new “good ship, lollipop”… so to speak.

Lemon White Chocolate.

Think about it for a minute. Imagine it. The smooth, silky feel of white chocolate gently melting in your mouth… but it’s accompanied by a lovely lemon tartness that helps to balance out the sweetness. It’s reminiscent of a lemon square or some other sweet lemon cookie. Only it’s better because it’s CHOCOLATE!

Okay, so here’s the skinny on this new mouth-pleaser:

8 oz White Chocolate

1/2 tsp PURE Lemon Extract

Powder or oil based candy coloring (optional)

Put all ingredients in a microwave safe bowl and melt. Be sure to stop and stir ever 15-30 seconds, to be sure not to burn the chocolate. Pour in favorite mold (mini-cupcake pans make great molds for circular candies, just fill part way until candy is desired thickness), then stick in freezer for approximately 10 minutes or until candy falls out easily when mold is inverted.

That’s it, pretty easy, huh?! If you want to get fancy, make some more in another color and put a small amount into a plastic baggie. Cut a small hole in the end of the baggie to make a piping bag. Then let your creativity roll, and pipe out some hearts, flowers or write a sweet message on your chocolate.

These make such a great party favor or gift for someone. And just remember, if you’re not feeling particularly creative, give me a call and we’ll put together some custom chocolates for you!

Happy Friday, friends!
