Khatija and I did a chocolate making class at Ruchira Cooking Classes a while back. We bought some supplies on the way home – dark compound (because we prefer the taste), a silicone mould, and cherry preserve from Fabindia. And we made dark chocolate with cherry filling. They tasted amazing!!
Chocolate making sounds like an inappropriate hobby for people trying to lose weight (me) and even those who are trying to keep a check on their weight (Khatija). But we just can’t stop 😀 Firstly because they are so yummy, and secondly because they are so easy and fun to make. We bought some cute moulds on Amazon – the robots, the tropical plants and fruits, and the starfish. We tried using grape preserve instead of cherry but it’s too sweet and doesn’t have that hit of flavour. Khatija added a little milk compound in a batch. She prefers it a little less dark. And she also experimented and put a huge mint in one chocolate which was quite stressful for her teeth to bite!
The last batch of chocolates we made is almost over. So it’s time to buy more dark compound!
