Free Chocolate Candy Recipe For Valentine’s Day!

Happy Saturday All! One of my favorite food holidays is coming up—Valentine’s Day, so I’ve spent this morning researching the perfect candy to make this year! The Love-Of-My-Life is a raspberry fan, so, in particular, I’ve been looking for raspberry recipes, and I think I’ve found the perfect one—Raspberry Chocolates from our Leisure Arts Best of Gifts of Good Taste Everyday!

If you like the idea of gourmet chocolates that even a novice candy maker like me can handle, check out this recipe:

6 ounces semisweet baking chocolate, chopped
6 ounces white baking chocolate, chopped
1/2 cup raspberry jelly

In separate small saucepans, melt chocolates over low heat, stirring constantly. Pour semisweet chocolate into a warm pie plate. Drizzle white chocolate over semisweet chocolate. Use the end of a wooden spoon to swirl together. Do not overmix. In batches, fill a bonbon mold half full with chocolate mixture. Using a small paintbrush, carefully brush chocolate mixture up sides of mold. Place mold in freezer 2 minutes or until chocolate hardens. Spoon about 1/2 teaspoon raspberry jelly into each chocolate shell. Spoon a small amount of chocolate mixture over jelly, making sure edges are sealed. Return to freezer 2 minutes or until chocolate hardens. Invert and press on back of mold to release candies. Store in an airtight container in a cool, dry place.

Yield: about 2-1/2 dozen 1-1/8-inch bonbons
