Chocolate Roses In A Box

When I was a child I loved watching my mom make chocolate candies by melting the chocolate in a pot. She drop the melted chocolate onto wax paper to create balls. She formed the perfect ball and refrigerated the balls for a few hours.


Nowadays we have molds with different shapes to make all kind chocolate candy. These molds make it so much easier to pour chocolate into them.

    You may want to try putting the chocolate in a heatproof bowl over hot water in a pot. Like a double boiler. Also, melt in a microwave. Melted chocolate doesn't look melted and is easy to overcook/scorch.
