How to Make Liqueur Chocolates at Home
Are you crazy about chocolate? If you can't resist the delight of sweet chocolate, this oneHOWTO article is going to suggest a simple recipe idea which will surprise your nearest and dearest and give them an adult chocolate treat. It is a simple recipe where you will discover how to make liqueur chocolates at home in a few easy steps with spectacular results, both in terms of taste and appearance.
The first step when making liqueur chocolates at home is to cut the dark chocolate into pieces. When ready, place the pieces into a measuring jug. Bring a pan of water to boiling point and then lower the heat. Next, place the jug of chocolate over a bain marie or double boiler.
When the chocolate has melted, remove the jug from the heat and add the double cream and liqueur (you can use any liqueur that you like, though we recommend Grand Marnier, Brandy or Cognac).
You need put the mixture into the pan containing boiling water and leave for a minute. Keep stirring to make the mixture smooth. When ready, you need to keep the jug in the refrigerator and leave the chocolate to cool for at least 5 hours.
Afterwards, you will see how the chocolates are firm and have hardened up. You can then get them out of the refrigerator. Take a tablespoon of the mixture and make a small ball from the paste. Make chocolate bonbons using all of the mixture and then place them on a flat surface.
Chocolate liqueur bonbons are even more delicious when using white chocolate. You need to melt the white or milk chocolate over a water bath as you did with the dark chocolate in the first step.
To finish, dip the chocolates into the white or milk chocolate and place on a tray. Alternate between white and milk chocolate when covering the balls. For a finishing touch, sprinkle chopped nuts over them (or whatever you like) to make the chocolates even tastier.
